- Introduction - Part 1 - Part 2 -

I'm averaging about 3 to 4 orders a day. I've also been upgraded to Level 1 Seller. Which allows me to add some "gig extras," meaning I can charge an extra $5, $10 or $15 for an upgraded order. Like if they want it within 24hrs or the original .psd files...

Dope.

More learning:

  1. I love having tracks to run on. Buyers with a vision of what they like are my favorite. They leave the specifics and creative decisions up to me, but I love having the "this is what I was thinking..." conversation.
  2. The difference between "I have to." vs. "I want to." The latter wins. Everytime.
  3. Time management. For something that qualifies as a rough comp? 1hr. 2hrs for a nice product. 3hrs for a gem that I'M proud of. The time lessens on each of these phases if I'm really into the project. 
  4. Lucy needs input. It's getting harder and harder to create new designs the less time I have to recharge and get ideas on my own time. I'm considering suspending my own gig for awhile... just so I can have a break.
  5. I miss getting my hands dirty. It gets lonely in Photoshop. I need to start sketching again, tearing pages out of magazines, shuffling scraps of paper around on my desk... I feel like that would definitely generate new outcomes. I'm feeling stagnant and my eyes are getting tired.
