Saying GoodBye

As you may have (or may not have) heard, June was (well, still is) my last month as art director for Stories for Children Magazine. Leaving was a very tough decision to make, but it was one I made due to an increase in illustration projects, a need to do more marketing, and to free up the remainder of my time for family.  It was so much fun working with the editors at SFC, and so many talented illustrators from all over the world - as far away as Syria! I'm glad I got to meet so many new artists, gain some experience in art direction, and make a few friends along the way! :O) It's been really fun, and something I'll miss for sure! 

On the up side, I have a lot of things going on - including projects I've put aside for a while, so I also look forward to progress on those, in the near future. I'll let you know what else I'm up to shortly.

Thanks for dropping by!

It was great working with you on the magazine, but I understand your decision. I work on a bi-monthly magazine for children in NH and produce the entire layout as well as provide creative direction. It is a lot of work and sometimes maintaining a balance is difficult, so I can't imagine working on a monthly!
Good luck with your projects.

congratulations! It's a hard step (one I know well myself) but well worth it. Working from home is wonderful and having the time to work on projects that you love is also great.
