I’ve recently been taking on a lot and I’m finding my time is split more and more between personal projects and projects for friends and actual paid work I’m currently building a site for a charity and have editing to do for some one else and I’m supposed to doing photos and filming for a comedy night on sundays all of this is unpaid work this does mean that with all of this I have very little spare time to focus on unpaid work for people so I’m think what I’m going to have to do is put a slow down on the unpaid stuff.
I was speaking to a business mentor the other day who suggested that i set aside a set amount of time each month that I can focus on unpaid work which i think is fair and by far a better way of doing things any thing out side of this time would have to be answered with a request for some remuneration for my time time is money after all.
At the end of the day it comes down to the fact even though I work for my self doesn’t mean that I can work for free which is true I have bills to pay I have retirement to save up for just like every one else does.
the down side to this is that it does mean I haven’t had much time to focus on my drawing which is something that Ive recently got back into.
Ive had a inkling since last year my usage of it varies from month to month and I love to draw I’m a graphic artist after all, I love technology and what it can bring to my artistic endeavours the inkling is one such device it allows me to draw on paper which i find nicer and simpler todo than using a tablet which i can find tricky but it also give me the options of layers which means I can put down a layout wireframe for a drawing then I can over lay that with the final pice all using the same device and while still keeping all of this in layers which i can strip away latter
on the down side it isn’t always perfect it doesn’t always keep your lines in the same place which does mean it requires some clean up after you have drawn your image but for something that allows me to bring some thing into the digital world that is from the physical world well you can hope for complete perfection
this image is one I drew on my way back from my Christmas trip to London side by side you can see the difference between the two and where I’ve cleaned up/altered the digital version ill be honest the sketchy feel to the drawing in partly due to the train and partly due to the way I was drawing on that day it did have some clean up in illustrator to make it clean all in all i love the inking for what it does and the interface it provides to allow you to translate drawings from paper to digital format with little hassle I would however like to see perhaps a updated version that renders line positioning more actuarially
