007: Hiatus

Posted: Sunday, September 19, 2015

Recently I have been given a wonderful opportunity to be part of a team and speak very passionately about a subject that I love very much. It is quite different from what is on this site regularly. This means I have to take a hiatus on this website. One thing that I’ve come to realize is that it is impossible to do every single thing in life to excellence without feeling burnout. I have been fighting burnout for years and it really wasn’t until this year that I realized a simple truth: saying yes to one thing is saying no to something else.

 

I say yes to a lot. It’s a struggle.

 

This recent opportunity is something that I have known was going to happen for some time, but it was always a matter of when it was going to materialize. It has been very nice to see it grow into a very real thing. This website (among A LOT of things) is something I have to say no to for right now. I also came to realize that saying no right now doesn’t mean that I’m saying no to it forever.

 

I am going to chime in here every now and again, continue creating caricatures, teaching and sharing value on this site, but for now it will not be on a weekly basis. It will be sporadic but I would rather deliver something quality instead of try to keep up with a weekly post and have the quality and value decline. You can always follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr to keep up on when things are updated as well as get quick tips and new artwork.

Every face has a story to tell and I want to teach you how to tell it.
