Class act. Jimiyo is one of the best. Nice interview.
Old interview! That girl that I moved to WA for, well, after 2 years, we didn’t work out. I’m back in the South now. C’est la vie. Though I am sad she was not the one, as Max Ehrmann says, “Love is as perennial as the grass.”
I’m still rockin it at Teefury though. We just had our 3rd birthday, and we are bangin. We hit 100,000 visitors in one day a few months ago. Not to tweet my own horn, the first two times were when my designs were showcased. The secret? Self promotion and contacting key bloggers and letting them know about your designs on sale. Art is key, but so is putting your work out there and letting people know.
Anyways, thanks for the redux.

It’s inspiring to read about artists who take the bull by the horns and make art work in their lives. I’m trying to teach my 16 year old artist daughter that she has to get her work out into the world, try new things, enter contests, etc. to see where she can go with her drawings. We made her first entry to DBH and I’m hoping some constructive feedback gives her a little push and inspiration.
In my mind, I always imagine you live alone in a lodge on a mountain, with hudreds of cats and couple of cattle. Somehow you managed to find broadband internet in the mountain, doing design work at night while farming in the morning…
thanks for the interview. i like your story about the cat who saved your life. :)
