This image says it all – aside from working away on artwork all summer, I spent quite a bit of time drinking cups of coffee to stay awake and alert. I have a tendency of not sleeping very much, mainly because I’m a busy body – I always have something on my plate that I’d like to work on. And oddly enough, the less sleep I get, the more alert I feel in the morning, whereas the more sleep I get, the more tired I feel. Anyway, what were you up to this summer? Any traveling across the country/world? I just made a trek to North Carolina for a long weekend so I could install my artwork in the “Out of the Wild” exhibit. Other than that, my travels have been limited to wandering around DC.
My blog has been a bit quiet this year – I’ve been bogged down with work for Duck & Fish and recently I took on several commissioned projects. I’ll post progress pictures of the commissioned pieces sometime in the future. I’m also going to take a few classes this year in graphic design and web design – I’m always eager to learn more about other creative outlets.
In other news, the “Out of the Wild” exhibit received a bit of press coverage from a local news station. Also, a writer from my college Elon University wrote an article on my work as an artist – “In The Spotlight: Megan Coyle ’08.”
Anyway, I’m off to get started on a commissioned dog portrait. I hope to post a progress picture or two somewhat soon.
