Just posted this to the Jump Start page to see if anyone had ideas on how to do pen and ink sketches like this to make some extra cash, but I wanted to share it here too. :)I had a fun time doing these.

Billie, thankful that your arteries are 'beautiful!'
Blessings on the Happy Tee campaign!
I am home for a few days - I had chest pains and some eye issues at same time - so I had a heart cath on Tuesday. Turns out it really was indigestion - my arteries are as doc said "beautiful." My whole family was stunned since I have eaten junk and Southern food for 40 years. Cleaned my act up 15 years ago, well, not totally.
I am spending the time working and just did my first teespring campaign. I put it on facebook. Would you all share it?
"Let's Start a Happiness Revolution! This is Vanessa's brainchild!
Check it out at http://teespring.com/behappytees and order your Be Happy Tee. Hoodies, tanks available too. Available through Sunday, October 19, 2pm EST.
I am on facebook at Billie Wells-Photography.
Interesting article! I 'd love to hear your thoughts about this.
Why Doubling Your Rates Doubles Your Success
Ed, thanks so much. Honestly, I was surprised at how difficult it was for me to paint commissions. I never dreamed that it would be hard, but inevitably I spend 3 to 4 Xs longer on them. So unless I can charge 3-4 Xs more, I figure that it's not worth my time.
Great interview, Deby! It's very neat to learn more about you and your art. I completely understand what you mean about having a job and also not wanting to do much commission work. People ask me fairly often about freelancing and doing custom work and like you, I honestly prefer not doing it either. As I've been creating my art these past few years in addition to having fun, I'm also discovering how personal it is for me generally speaking something I enjoy doing for myself. I used to think about freelancing or illustrating other people's books, but not so much any more.
Best of luck on your new business venture!
Thank you for the replay link Deby!
And thank you for the clarification of the story!
