I’ve been on a short sort-of break for the past two weeks, as a good friend of mine was visiting from Malaysia. A break is a wonderful thing… except when you know you have deadlines to meet!
I tell friends who want to visit that summer is the best time to visit because I’m always less busy, as many people are on holiday during this period. And it was true the first year I went freelance (back in 2013). But in 2014 and 2015, I’ve consistently been busy over the summer period, which is fantastic for my productivity (because, let’s face it, when you don’t have work to do, you feel kinda useless) and bank balance, but not so good for the friends coming over.
Now that my friend has flown home and is starting her own stress back at work, I have more time and energy to catch up with all my work. So that makes me feel better. It’s been a long while since I’ve drawn or painted something, and I’m itching to do it – but commissioned work takes priority.
Hopefully you’ll be able to see something new on my feed before the end of the week!
