Today hasn't been so bad for me... I recently had a painting of mine used as an album cover for a southern band called daybreakdown ( http://www.daybreakdown.com )that is taking off really fast...nipping on the heels of jam bands like WSP and beanland. Tonight is the CD release party and I think they are gonna sell tons...they already have a large fan base and this is thier first album!! So I can add another notch in the old bed post of published work!! Yippie!! Im still on my way to the illustrator's pearly gates of finacial freedom...yeah right. ALSO, at work, my new computer arrived...and it has a dvd burner onit...don't know why...don't care why...it just makes me happy.ANd a new flat screen monitor that i can actually see my photos without squinting.
