Tesla the Visual Thinker, Linocut, 4 x 6"
Tesla finger puppets on Etsy. I have consistently showed up for my allotted 4-hours/week as a member at MAKEatx, so some of that time has been playing around such as making puppets, so now I need to move them off my desk.
It may seem like I've been super productive, but I am feeling really scattered. I'm doing this crafty stuff (fun), teaching workshops (fun), and making the mini-grackles (also fun), but I'm taking time away from what I envision for my art. I just need to work it out in my noggin how I'm going to do these fun things that do generate a little bit of income, and how I'm going to do the stuff that is my true motivator--my other art projects. These things have been great but they've kept me away from focusing on my quest. If I manage to keep my work my main focus, and if I could see a line on how these fun things help spread the word of my other work, it might be worth it, but that's difficult to gauge. I'm sure I'll work it out eventually...
