Dreaming of Saguaros

For the past few months, I have been working as a graphic designer. Since my job is only part time, I've also been doing lots of freelance work. There is a HUGE difference between art and graphic design. There is a great article at webdesignerdepot.com that addresses these differences.

This particular piece is interesting, because I was inspired to create this image.I saw something similar to this image in my mind last night as I was getting ready to go to bed. I decided to get up and make it happen. I will change the colors and the shapes later, but this is the idea: a mosaic illustration of cactus. Typically, when I am inspired to do something, it's painting or drawing and sometimes it's sculpting. This time, the image was a vector graphic. It was colorful and simple and I really needed to get my finger on a mouse and click at some shapes.

This doesn't mean that I am going to stop painting. In fact, I have started a YouTube show, where I share videos of my painting process. I am still doing commissions once in a while and I also paint for leisure. Check out my Etsy page. I've working on a series of mountains and landscapes.
