Ok, so it’s been a long week. I spent the past 7 days at the Rotary Youth Camp in Jacomo, Missouri. I was working staff for the Joshua Center for Neurological Disorders as the water-boy. However, one thing led to another, and soon I was the camp artist! Becky Ottinger, the head of the operations, asked me what I wanted to do after high school. I mentioned that I was an artist. I let her visit my website and for about the next twenty minutes, I was watching the reactions of other counselors to my art. From that point, I became the camp artist.
Becky now has me drawing dragons for her board games which she will be marketing to counselors and similar organizations dedicated to teaching social skills. There will be a few board games. Each is attributed about 6 sets of “situation cards” (basically they say, “what would you do if…”). There are categories on hygiene, personal space, bullying, you name it. I have a bunch of sharpied concept drawings for the board games which Becky’s co-worker, Jack Kammert will turn into vector images and colorize.
I also have a set of drawings for a story called,”Zac the Zookeeper”. Another one of Beck’s co-workers, Sarah wrote this story, so that was on my list of things to illustrate. So I have a HUGE collection of drawings of dragons and zebras to scan so I’ll have to find at least 2.5 free hours to do that.
So I’ll get back to you all with that within a few days! And all of the above means expanding and spreading of the word about my art! Which means more business.
