I know, I know. I have more blog attempts than Taylor Swift has hit singles. But I really mean it this time. :)
I'll be taking the next few weeks to gather content and make sense of all of the ideas/inspiration/dad jokes running around in my head, but be sure to check back in the new year for what I hope will be a fun new project.
To tide you over, here's a little excerpt from the About page that I think best explains the vision for Mr. Blog...
About the Blog
I have always, always been held back by a lack of confidence. I didn't learn to walk until I knew I could run without falling. I didn't pursue my art for a long time, fearing failure and the inability to turn it into a career. And most recently, I've been feeling as though I haven't been fully developing the gifts and talents that I've been given. I believe that each and every one of us has something beautifully unique to offer the world, and I hope to inspire myself and others to let go of fear and do the things that make us feel most alive.
Here's how I hope to achieve that:
- A weekly challenge. I'll be releasing one new illustration per week on the blog. I hope that this will encourage me to make more art, simply because it brings me joy. Want to join me? Tag your work with #LGweeklychallenge. I'd love to see what you're up to! All of the weekly prints will be made available for purchase on the Weekly Print Series page. :)
- Weekly interviews with people I admire. I'll be interviewing lots of wonderful folks to celebrate the work they're doing in the world. We'll chat about successes and failures, what makes each of them unique, and what brings them joy.
- Shared inspiration. I'll be sharing links/quotes/work/podcasts/allthethings that could help push us all to become more creative in our work and lives.
Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along. I'm looking forward to sharing this season of life with you and I hope that we can together encourage each other to pursue the things that give us life.
Love & Respect,
