I Feel Bored and Something has gotta Change


I am almost finished with this art journal. I have already begun another larger journal.

Do you guys have any questions that you want to ask me? I am getting bored with my blog format of laying out my journal pages, so I thought I would open up the conversation. Some of you probably know by now that I am a professional artist so if there is anything that you would like to ask about being an artist, or about art journaling - feel free to ask away.

I don't know in what form I will continue this blog, so maybe your questions and or comments will help me.

I really enjoy looking at all the work and thought that goes into your art journal. It's been pretty inspiring to me in my own journey with art journalling.

However, I wonder--what other types of surfaces do you work on? Do you have a preference?

I don't have any suggestions or questions for your blog Zom, but I had to say I just love that baby!!! what an expression!!
I do have one question - how was your show opening reception? I hope it was well attended and a lot of fun :)

Hmmmm... arhhhmmmm... what about...
more about your paintings? You know, what inspires you, How you go about doing your thing? ...Maybe what a day in the life of being Zom is like? i mean what's it like to be a full time artist in a practical sense... What kind of working hours do you keep? Do you create in other ways, use other mediums? Maybe more about your studio... Is it separate from your house? ...Or am i just getting tOO personal now?
But truly i would be interested in how you go about being a full time artist as a business, as well as a way of life X:-)

I enjoy looking at your journal pages and how they evolve, but I understand you may want to try something different. Nollyposh has some great ideas. It would also be fun to see how your being an artist affects the "regular" parts of your life. Like, how you dress or how you decorate your house, for example. I read once about an artist who liked to arrange the contents of her refrigerator so that it was alway pleasing to the eye--this fascinated me!

I enjoy the journal pages and I would be very interested in the suggestions mentioned in the other posts. As long as you don't stop blogging, I'll be happy.
Hugs,

I wanna know everything. All those little details... giggle. Does your art consume you, does it wake you in the night, talk to you?, make you happy or sad, is it a friend, a comfort, or a big rock to be dragged? What color is it? Bright and shiny, or a shadow?
That's what she asked me the last time I was in therapy.... :) hugs, PJ I know I'm wicked...

I love your artwork. I was wondering more about your art bio. I curios are you still in the advertising industry. Your artwork reminds me of fashion design its awesome. did you go the college to be an illustration.
Are you a making a living in the creating art. I apologize if im being a little nosy. Im looking for some advice in trying to be in an artsier career field.

Zom said...

Hi Jacquie
I left advertising after a very short stint, less than a year - and that was twenty years ago!
I do not yet make a living from selling my paintings, but I am working towards it.
If you want to make a living, the easiest way probably would be graphic art.
Good luck.

You'll figure it out. No worries. It will all come together somehow and work itself out. It always does one way or another, doesn't it? Much Love - Gia
