What i would tell my younger self 🎨

back in college, i honestly thought i would become a “starving artist” once i graduated. society often labels artists this way & it felt hard to break away from that narrative. i didn't care though, i loved it so much that i decided to pursue it anyway 🤷🏻‍♀️
the first piece i created was a watercolor calendar to fundraise for my alaska mission trip. to my surprise, it was a success & ended up fully funding my trip! from that first win, i began to see the potential of making an actual living as an artist 👩🏻‍🎨 i side hustled for the first 2 years, then officially went full-time in 2015. we'll be celebrating our 4th year anniversary this coming august & i'm still so grateful for that very first win. ✨
this is my story in a nutshell, but if you want to hear it more in-depth i shared it all on @moderncreativepodcast! i chat all about how i ditched the starving artist narrative on episode 50. i also shared 10 tips on how to go from side hustle to full-time on @youtube and #chasinglinenblog! these are the tips i would give to my younger self and i hope it helps those who want to pursue art. ditch that starving artist narrative now and go after your dreams! 💛

Another peek at one of the greeting cards i designed for the mom/dad/grad challenge over at @minted ! 🏆 this one was especially fun for me to create because the colors are so electric, and a bit out of my typical norm. 🎨 it stretched me out of my comfort zone a bit, and i ended up loving it. happy accidents are wonderful teachers.

Friday intro time: hello, my name is jodi and i am a virgo currently at the mercy of mercury retrograde. i’ve been in full artistic existential crisis mode all week because of being in limbo with a big project (i signed a contract at the beginning of the retrograde and that, my friends, was a mistake). so i’ve been taking this time to question my life’s purpose and generally agonize over everything, including every piece of artwork i’ve ever produced. you know, just regular enneagram 4 stuff 🤷🏼‍♀️ on a lighter note/back to the whole introduction thing, i recently discovered that owning a ridiculous amount of houseplants is the best. so far my favourite is definitely my chinese evergreen because she just thrives no matter where i put her or how long i forget to water her. aside from being a new plant mom, i am also an overprotective dog mom, a champion procrastinator and expert worrier. and i make a really good meat sauce 🍝 (like, really good). i’ll be surviving the remainder of the retrograde with a combination of wine, puppy cuddles and binge-watching cooking shows. so tell me: what do we have in common! and how are you dealing with the retrograde and other cosmic weirdness? ☄️ (ps, photo by @lindsaykennellphotography & florals by @cristinakisilflowers ❤️)
