The Slug, it moves!

This week begins the big move – the Endless Slug is moving down the street!  I’ll be posting more soon, but I need to get all snuggled into my new digs and setup my new studio and home office.  It’s tough to do when you’re effectively unemployed and have zero income.  So, I don’t expect another post until after early August, but after that I have a few more chapters of my art student handbook to post and I have some new illustrations for another book I’ve been working on that will get posted.

Let’s all hope the new home brings much income to the Slug.  The Slug needs it.

Busy Illustrating?

What has Endless Slug gone and done now?  I accepted a paid contract for illustrations.  Ok, ok, it’s not quite a paid contract since I contracted myself.  I recently started my own publication company since the world apparently will not hire me for anything (going on 10 months unemployed now, whee!).  Unfortunately, the form of publications requires me to have illustrations.  Since I have no money, I get to do all of my own illustrations!  I *hate* illustrating.  In this particular case, I certainly will do it – although I hope I can make some sort of revenue so that I can hire some professionals out there.

Anyway, the blog has been a bit lighter than I wanted lately, but only due to the high number of hits on my last post and the start-up of my new business.  I just wanted to update my more dedicated readers.  The Slug is still out there, slugging around…
