Hi friends!  As I’ve eluded to in many of my recent posts, 2014 is the year I am committing to officially taking the LEAP, walking my talk and saying a big fat YES! to my art business dreams. It’s really scary and really exciting – which is how I know for sure that it is the path I am meant to be traveling.

I’m not going it alone though.  I’ve learned that I need to recruit support – my “dream team” if you will.  This group includes local helpers and friends that I can call on for their skills, wisdom, experience and advice – those that I can meet with in person; and many many virtual helpers who can guide and lift me up virtually.  One such tribe that I have employed for this journey is the amazing folks at Do What You Love and Lilla Rogers Studio.  I’m not only enrolled in the Make Art That Sells Part B (took part A back in October last year), but I’ve just signed up for and started Make Art That Sells Assignment Bootcamp.

MATS Bootcamp Lilla Rogers

After taking MATS part A, I knew the amazing support and inspiration from the classmates, Lilla Rogers (our Fairy Artmother) and Beth Kempton are top-notch.  And in making my plan for 2014, one of the biggest steps I need to take to make this art business dream a reality is make lots and lots of art and get it out in the world.  About the time I am coming to this conclusion and scratching my head about how to do that, an announcement about this class shows up.  Here’s what’s involved: get an assignment each month form Lilla Rogers, get inspiration and support from classmates while working on the assignment and upload it to a gallery that she will be promoting to folks looking for art.  Um… yes please.

So bootcamp started this week with a “mini” focused on cuckoo clocks.  I’m having a blast sketching lots of wacky little birdhouses and enjoying the tribe that the fellow classmates provide.  Here’s one of my initial sketches:  Jordan Kim cuckoo clock doodles

(I keep hearing little ‘cuckoos” in my head while sketching – is that a problem?)  Keep checking back or follow me on Instagram for regular updates on my progress.  I’d be honored to have you join me.  Thanks for checking in!
