Nervous and Worried

Just need to vent.
Got an e-mail from my handler today and she told me that I have sent enough PBR but the Couuntryboy/girl brand is un related to PBR and I can send more of them without the PBR logo.
She also told me that she has sent some of the designs I sent her on to PBR for approval. She didn't specify if by "some" she meant there were a few that she decided were not good enough to send them or if she simply has not had the time to send them all. After all there are 50 of them.

She told me I was welcome to submit straight Countrygirl/boy designs. She also gave me the info on another assignment but its a wildlife inda thing and I'm nervous. I haven't looked into the assignment at all so I guess I shouldn't really worry.

I'm still looking into finding new clients. I know I have talent and I definitely have the equipment and I know pricing isn't a problem. I just have to market myself and thats tough.

I just can't imagine God would have given me all this and not given me an outlet. Its just up to me to listen to him and find them.

50th Design

This was my 50th Countryboy/girl design. Marking the most by far that I have ever designed for one client, and it keeps on coming. Just going to keep going til they tell me to stop.

Thanks Jaybles

I really didn't like this one at first but a friend of mine gave me some advice and it turned int a pretty cool little design. I'd wear it, Which is really the test now isn't it.

Lots On My Mind

It's Monday night/Tuesday morning and I'm up about to start another movie. Gotta get one more in before I sleep.
Its been a long day, I woke up at 12 noon. Went to see my landlord/good friend Danny Mac. He has built a shop and wants me to help him with some stuff like a website and e-mail and all that stuff. He plans on eventually buying a printer cutter and making his own die cut stickers and vehicle wraps. Also getting some canvas and printing his designs and mine on canvas and selling them. I'll have some links to his stuff here in a month or so when we get things locked down.
I'm going to try and make it over there 2-3 days a week during the day and work with him. While still trying to find new customers and keep my current customer happy.

Speaking of which, its been over 8 weeks since I have been paid by my current client. I'm still busting out 3-6 designs a week for them and sending over low res copys for approval but I'd really like a check for the work I have all ready invoiced.

Blockbuster is going well. I pretty much always have a good time while I'm there. I get paid which is nice. I just need to become that guy that works everyday. If i'm not at Blockbuster I need to get up and work on my own either doing art or looking for clients like its my job.

I'll never be able to support my family properly unless I get more clients.

If you are reading this then you probably know me and I'd really like to ask you to pray for my decisions and for some leads.
