I've been traveling a lot lately.
Ohhhhh, yes, I have.
Oh, where to, do you ask?
Ummmmm ... my studio?
I may have mentioned before that
each time I create an illustration or piece of artwork,
it NEVER fails that I mentally put myself in the place
that I'm illustrating.
It happens automatically ... I have no choice.
And it's a nice fringe benefit of what I do.
So, my mental bags are always packed
for the next exciting place I'll go ...
it may be to Paris ...
or to a summer's day even though it's fall ...
or shopping at a home decor boutique ...
or a visit to a luxurious spa ...
and believe it or not,
I've been to all of those places last week alone,
via the custom illustrations I'm currently working on.
All of that mental travel
to exciting and fun places
is an awful lot of fun.
an exciting illustration opportunity
comes my way (yay!) that must be done asap ...
and even though I already have a
back-to-back illustration schedule,
I sometimes try to fit them in ...
and when that happens, all that mental travel
can leave a girl just a wee bit jet-lagged!
Do you have something that you love to do
and get so absorbed in it
that it mentally "takes you away?"
Love to hear what it is!
Happy new week everyone!
