This afternoon I went over to Orange Moon Salon to hang my four drawings. They'll be on display there for a while. Go make an appointment to get your hair did and check out my art. Tonight I finished my last two drawings for Inktober 2020. The 30th is my face, all beat up, broken & undead. The 31st, which is Halloween night, I drew a trick or treating kid with tentacles wearing a ghost costume holding up 6 candy buckets. This was my fourth year doing Inktober.
365 posts! Most of them are shit but the daily exercise has helped me with my writing and it's encouraged me to continually work on other projects. The other benefit is if Instagram ever turns off the lights, or people move to other social media platforms, I'll still have all my content available here.
I'm getting ready to file my taxes so I went thru last years tax stuff and found I picture I drew of myself. It was my first year filing business income & expenses for 2018 and it took me a few weeks to go over all my records and file. It sucked while I was doing it but felt great once I finished. I think I did better job at keeping records for 2019 so it shouldn't take as long as last year.
I had nice streak going. There were a few cheater posts, where I couldn't think of anything so I'd just write a few words or post some drawings, just to say I posted something. I did 56 straight days in a row. I'm a little bummed out that I missed a day. I wanted to make it at least to 100. Oh well.
And in other womp-womp news, it doesn't look like that vending opportunity in downtown is gonna go thru. We'll see.
At the two events over the weekend I noticed I was out of Large t-shirts in all styles. Yesterday, when I did inventory, I saw that I was out of a few other sizes & styles too. It's time to reprint more shirts so today I went thru my sales history to see what sizes sell faster and which sizes sit in inventory longer. When I added up all my shirts that have gone out it's an even 200! I couldn't believe it. I thought it would take at least a couple years to reach that number but I did it in 15 months. I'm super stoked about this milestone but also about my short sales history that will help me make better decisions going forward.
Thank You to everyone that wears my t-shirts!
