Really cute and I love the font. I like the ones with the invisible backgrounds as they visually break you out of the box, but you've got to be alert for contrasting dots on different backgrounds. Yours looks great!

I don't think I knew you wanted to make a career of it. You're really good at it so it definitely shows. ^_^ Love the Word Association Game's look too. :D

Story I heard long ago about this calligraphy artist in Japan who was approached by this wealthy patron who told him he was a big fan. All he wanted from him was the drawing of a cat.

The artist accepted the commission, but every time the man came by, the artist told him to go away, it wasn't ready yet. Naturally, the patron grew angrier and angrier, until it was one year to the day that he'd first asked for the cat. Unable to take it anymore, he stormed into the artist's house and demanded his cat picture.

The artist put a fresh piece of paper on his drawing table, picked up his calligraphy brush, and in a few deft strokes drew a cat upon the page and handed it over.

And the patron was overwhelmed - every brush stroke screamed "Cat!" It was perfection.

He then frowned and demanded that if the artist could draw this picture so perfectly and effortlessly in just a few strokes of the brush, why did he have to wait an entire year to get his picture?

The artist walked over to a cabinet and threw it open - and out poured hundreds of drawings of cats he'd drawn over the last year.


We should always be our own worse critics - who else knows our work better? When we step away from our work and look on it with fresh eyes, we can't help but to notice our flaws and mistakes. Art, like life, is a series of steps towards improvement, towards perfection. We'll never get there, but we'll strive for it. Because there is always something new to learn.

But then there's a point where we just have to stop, otherwise it's never going to be done. And we'll call it version 1.

I actually really love this. There are times when Ive had to give up on a project and walk away. No one else seems to know why I dislike my work so much, even drafts. Some times it really is best to step away and come back later.

Glad you like the story - as you can see, it's made quite an impression with me to have remembered it all this time.
