Side Hustle Scorecard (Week of April 3-9, 2023)
My big accomplishment this week was hand-carving a chocolate version of an Easter Island Moai statue (at least that was the initial intention). There were a few hiccups along the way, so the video is definitely worth checking out.
Other side-hustle accomplishments for last week included:
Mailing the Precipice of Corruption black velvet painting to IP owner Nick Baran of Breaker Press Games;
Printing QR code stickers and attached them to the backs of all my freebie hand-out stickers so that eben after someone peels and sticks one of my art stickers, they have a way of remembering who/where it came from;
Printing test prints on the new 4x6 paper I had purchased last week. We decided that for framed prints, the photo paper works better but the heavy cardstock feels really great for unframed prints;
Mailing a little surprise package out to one of my top fans; and
Making hotel reservations for Midwest Monster Fest in Moline, IL in September,
This independent artist train keeps on a-rolling. It’s now become much less of a chore (and more of a habit) to produce a new piece of art and the accompanying video every two weeks.
I even sometimes have good ideas for short-form video (though they still do not perform all that spectacularly well).
