That green tea insomnia is kicking in. Turning off my alarm.
Working and working and working until something in your brain clicks. I live for that feeling.
I love my city cause it prepared me for life. #baltimore

Read something great today about pricing work for creatives.
“On the subject of prices, it’s is better in your early years to get your work published and circulated than to quibble over price. The more you get published the better known you become. The better known you are, the more work you get. The more work you get, the better will be your price.”- Figure Drawing for all it’s worth by Andrew Loomis
This book was published in the early 40′s but the same rules apply for the artist today. I would suggest that anyone perusing photography or any art career for that matter to read this book! The lessons are priceless.
Let me know what you think.
