10 Point Status Update, Marcus Unlimited

Posted in Blogging by marcusunlimited on December 30, 2009

1. Went 2010 Calender hunting today, ended up with 4 nice ones for the office. Landscapes, world sites, Inspirations, and Nature Scenes. All from the larger dollar store, $1.00 each.

2. Haircut. While there I noticed my old school man barber does pretty darn good doing nothing but straight forward business man cuts for guys. I see so many ladies set up the really, really fancy hair shops with the perms colorings etc who go out of business, but my barber has more biz than he needs, lines everyday by doing nothing but A+, old-fashioned biz cuts. Something to think about for those of you headed to Barber school.

3. Writing on the series, book, multimedia event. It is getting more thrilling each entry. Getting closer to the big turning point that really launches the story. Having a darn good time on the way there also. I ask that it stay that way through all the edits etc.

4. Paid some bills, (the ones I could afford too:) These companies need to learn to be more thankful.

5. I am absolutely going to have to look at a tiny price increase for students. I wish I didn’t have too but that is where it is at. I have always undercharged for what I know, and what I can do, and my own education and experience relative to it. I ask that all my students and their families be ok with this.

6. Looking forward to getting the story to the point of the second song so that I can begin notation of it and get it ready for my students in the student artist program at Marcus Unlimited (Introduced in 2009)

7. Making sure to combine all side story ideas that have in the past side tracked me into the big story. I thought originally this would weaken the story but instead, it has enriched it exponentially are really takes it to a new level of pure originality.

8. Tried increasing the format size for the stories art work to 8.5 x 11 on high quality card stock, however that size takes to long because of the allowable detail which is visibly unnecessary anyways. When the books come out they will be standard pocketbook size so I may fold the 8.5 x 11″ ‘s in half and use that as the format. That could work. Other ideas include some sort of big picture map on one page. (Something I’ve done before for other works that had a cool result.

9. Filled up one journal, going to the second tonight! Yes!

10. Happy New Year! 🙂
