I've been quite busy these days getting ready to get started out on my own--after leaving BJU. There are a lot of considerations---insurance, bills to pay, time management, etc. Thank the Lord that He is helping me work through all this.
Things are starting to change at the Press. A large slice of the video work I would have been doing is already being shifted over to Craig Oestering now. He's got my monitor and DV deck as of today too.
The office downtown (for Portland Studios) is shaping up. Saturday will be filled with stripping and sanding the floors. Then the next week I hope we'll be putting in crown molding and painting. We'll see.
By the way, it's just one room, but it's a great start for us.
We're working on many projects now:
New book cover for Houghton-Mifflin.
Another book cover for Houghton-Mifflin.
Getting some details worked out with the Free the Dalits poster. (That piece will be used in a new book about the Dalit people being put out by the Dalit Freedom Network.)
Working on e-cards for the Portland Studios site. (These aren't you mother's e-cards.)
Some characters for Neighborhood Bible Time.
Working on a pitch to Tommy Nelson of a new children's book by Andrew Peterson that we're representing.
Waiting on getting If I Were A Monster through the next pitch level at Tommy Nelson.
Doing a new front page illustration for www.driftlab.com
Doing a cover for a Dictionary of Christian Biography for Ambassador-Emerald.
Short film based on WWII trolls---Cory Godbey is art directing and writing.
And lots of other little pieces of ideas going on.
LOTS of new story developments stuff.
