I have to admit this post took me a while to write because I was out of town all last week and still getting the creative juices flowing this morning. You have to promise not to get jealous, but I was on a cruise ship for a week helping pull off a music festival for Bud Light. It’s a verrrry long week with little sleep, but I can’t complain about the setting and getting to see our work pay off when 4,000 people have the time of their lives. Now I’m back in my studio and returning to my holiday commissions and other projects.
With Thanksgiving in a few days as well as the 9-month mark of doing this full-time, I would like to thank all of my supporters again for helping make my dream a reality through constant inspiration, ideas, referrals, and so much more. As much as I stubbornly try to do everything on my own, my business would not be possible without your help, and just knowing I have a loving network to turn to when needed.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.”
– Mike Tyson
My mom’s cousin Jake shared this one with me a few weeks ago, and I have to say I never thought I’d be praising the wisdom of former boxer and flourishing actor Mike Tyson. He’s absolutely correct in both a literal and figurative sense, and that’s why knowing how to embrace change and adapt is the greatest skill of all.
Here’s the latest addition to the public safety art I wrote about last in my last post. I decided to spare myself the terror and relied on photographer Patrick Lanham to provide the image. I’m looking forward to sharing the artwork with various K-9 units and the organizations that support the lives of the dogs after they “retire” from service.
