Last month, I started making some artist trading cards — trading-card-sized original art — to sell at Smudge and I think they went over pretty well. I mean, $2 for original art? Who can resist?

I’ll be making more of these to sell later this year at SPX (September 13th – 14th), which I just registered for. :)

In the meantime, I’ve added these artist trading cards to my online store: thepoetandtheflea.storenvy.com/products/6181117-artist-trading-card. When purchasing, please let me know by number (#) which card you would like. Take a look:

New Year’s Resolutions 2014

Related Post: New Year’s Resolutions: End-of-the-Year Evaluation!

***

2014

This may be a few weeks early, but I’m getting the ball rolling…!

  1. Fund and film my first short, Death Is No Bad Friend.  This is a ginormous endeavor and I’ve already put so much time and energy into it. Our trailer turned out beautifully and I’m both nervous and excited to launch our Indiegogo campaign mid-January (if everything goes as planned). For more information, please visit and follow Siren’s Gaze Productions at sirensgazeproductions.wordpress.com.
  2. Finish the script for The Poet and the Flea. Check out my plan here: Happy 256th Birthday, Mr. William Blake!
  3. Work on the next 10 illustrated pages of The Poet and the Flea. I’ve decided to dedicate December to this goal! I’ve been working on pages 31 through 40 for the past week or so, and have made much progress. I’m almost done outlining everything in ink and will begin with greyscale markers very soon. If everything goes well, I may even start on pages 41 through 50 this month!
  4. Work on the next 10 illustrated pages of The First Reich. I’m hoping to work on pages 11 through 20 in January. :)
  5. Find a publisher and/or agent to represent my work. How? Well, I’ve tried inquiry letters and I’ll continue down that path. But I also want to attend some major book fairs so that I can meet publishers and agents in person and chat with them. We’ll see how this goes!
  6. Get settled in Washington, D.C. Meaning I’d like to reconnect with old friends and make new ones too. Also, I’d like to network with D.C. filmmakers and try to get involved in local filmmaking. This past Wednesday, I met with two filmmakers — Steve and Kate — to discuss a collaborative stop motion animation short film. I’m excited to see how this project shapes up and will post more information about it soon!
  7. Attend some more film festivals. My wonderful time in Cannes has motivated me to expand my experience of film festivals. I hope to attend some local D.C. film festivals as well as perhaps some bigger ones like Tribeca or maybe even Telluride. I also plan on looking into the Creative Minds program in Toronto (though I probably won’t have the money for that).
  8. Get a decent part-time job and earn a little money. This has been a real struggle for me — getting paid versus doing something I love. I really don’t want to settle for a job that has nothing to do with my interests. But everything to do with my interests are unpaid or not enough to make ends meet. We’ll see…
  9. Perhaps invest in some film equipment and/or filmmaking software. I need to do more research in this realm, but I’m interested in learning more about Final Cut Pro, Dragonframe, and other film/animation software.
  10. Very long-term goal: Move to Brooklyn! I do miss New York City and feel that it’s the best place for me as a filmmaker. I’m hoping to start building up a nest egg so that I can eventually move! :D

This is a very challenging set of New Year’s Resolutions, but you never know until you try! :D

New Year’s Resolutions: End-of-the-Year Evaluation!

2013

Once again, I’ve revisited my 2013 New Year’s Resolutions — and I think I’ve done a pretty good job! Some goals didn’t work out and other I’m still working on. But, all in all, I feel that I’ve accomplished a lot this year. :)

Coming Soon: New Year’s Resolutions 2014!!!

In the meantime, here’s the breakdown…

Goals for 2013

  1. Complete materials for Elias & The City of Cats (hopefully before the end of January) and send out to publishers. I completed the materials for Elias & The City of Cats early April. The book hasn’t been picked up by a publisher yet, but I’m glad for the experience. In June, I was hired by Zest Books for a number of freelance illustrations and Scared Stiff: Everything You Need to Know about 50 Famous Phobias featuring 50+ of my illustrations will be released this coming February. :D When I get the chance, I’m hoping to write a children’s book myself entitled The Flatulent Earl. And, of course, I’d love to continue illustrating other writer’s work!
  2. Finish first 10 pages of The First Reich and get them up online. I completed the cover and first 10 pages of The First Reich in October and am excited to continue on to the next 10 pages. A preview zine of the completed pages is available on my online store The Poet and the Flea Market at thepoetandtheflea.storenvy.com/products/3203094-the-first-reich-zine.
  3. Begin working with Masa and Gabe on full-length screenplay collaboration The Blanks (working title), to be finished before June 2013. This project really didn’t go anywhere. But, in the meantime, I’ve helped a few other screenwriters edit/fix their screenplays. So that was an accomplishment!
  4. Send out query letters about my completed full-length screenplays to production companies. I’ve sent out a number of query letters to publishers, agents, etc. about both my screenplays and graphic novels. No success yet, but I just gotta keep trying!!! Next year, I’m hoping to attend some big book fairs in order to scope out and talk to publishers and agents. We’ll see how this goes!
  5. Finish the script for The Poet and the Fleahopefully somewhere between 60 – 75 pages. This is still a really important goal! And I am making progress one step at a time. For more details, please see my post Happy 256th Birthday, Mr. William Blake!
  6. Work on my first zine (possibly a tie in with The Flea) and self-print it. I have succeeded in creating and self-publishing a number of zines this year — “Smithereens,” “The Ink Drinker,” and previews of both The Poet and the Flea and The First Reich. I’ve really enjoyed learning how to self-bind these little books. :) Furthermore, I’ve exhibited these at the SF Zine Fest, SPX, and APE. So I feel very accomplished in this arena. You can check out all my zines and other merchandise at The Poet and the Flea Market (thepoetandtheflea.storenvy.com).
  7. Open up a Storenvy account to sell zines and other merchandise (prints, t-shirts, etc.). Done and done!!! The Poet and the Flea Market (thepoetandtheflea.storenvy.com).
  8. Work on the next 10 illustrated pages of The Poet and the FleaThen the next 10, and so on and so forth!! This goal is currently in progress! :)
  9. Find a reliable and talented director and/or producer to turn one of my short scripts into a short film. Then enter the short film into a number of festivals. I have a whole cast and crew lined up to help me transform my short script Death Is No Bad Friend into a short film! Currently, we are hoping to launch our Indiegogo campaign January/February 2014 and, if we get funded, film around June/July. This is an extremely challenging project for me and I hope you all will support our efforts! For more information, please visit Siren’s Gaze Productions (sirensgazeproductions.wordpress.com).
  10. Finally get an official internship, fellowship, and/or job in a field of interest. January through April, I worked as an intern at Zest Books.  In May, I went to the Cannes International Film Festival through the American Pavilion Film Program. I earned a little money and lots of experience illustrating Scared Stiff: Everything You Need to Know about 50 Famous Phobias. Now, I’m about to start work on a collaborative stop motion animation project. The busy bee never rests!

My Name and Art on Amazon!

This past Summer, I worked on a number of projects for Zest Books. And I’m excited to see my work starting to pay off!

Now on Amazon, you can view the cover illustration I created for Scared Stiff: 50 Phobias That Freak Us Out as well as my name with the credit “illustrator.” In addition to the cover, I created 50 interior illustrations — one for each phobia. So I hope this book will be a real treat for my fans and followers.

Scared Stiff will be released February 4th, 2014, but you can already pre-order via Amazon! Plus, as we near February, I plan on sharing some behind-the-scenes “Phobias” sketches, so keep your peepers peeled!!!
