The Gift That Keeps On Giving

My apartment is really close to a super awesome park here in Brooklyn.  I kinda spoiled myself with this apartment and I gotta say I'm glad I did.  Its in a safe area, its totally lovely and its SECONDS away from the entrance to a busy park where people are constantly coming and going.  This makes for the most perfect of people watching/drawing situations.
I will be moving again though in a few months and I certainly hope I can stay in this area.  This week I am feeling great as I cut a waaaay rough animatic of a short I want to make PLUS got in some drawing and painting time.  A MILLION POINTS TO ME!
Must keep up momentum though.  Even though I love my job I know its no substitution for working on my own stuff.  I think that both things can live quite happily in the same world.  The thing that really seems to throw me though is improv.  It is exhausting and challenging and wonderful.  It also equals really late nights.  I had the same problem when I was in Toronto and the only way I could solve it was to cut down my improv.  But I don't wanna.  I'm pretty determined to have it all and I'm willing to put in the work to figure this equation out.  Its frustrating and slow going but I don't think I have any option other than to work it out.
Also my improv improves my art.  So..........I guess this is just happening.

Itsy Bitsy

Little post of a little girl!  In a cute fluffy dress!

I continue to work on being able to balance my 9-5 with my own creative endeavors.....  It is a hard task but one I believe to be possible.  I will get there!
