................................aaaaand continuing on, I recently answered an add for a local Nashville Indie Rock band who was in need of a design for their t-shirts. I thought hey why not I can do that! When I got an email back accepting my offer I just really thought I was "da sheeit". Turned out, after a bit emailing back and forth I discovered I was only a piece of "da sheeit". LOL. For you see, there were many MANY who responded to this request which makes sense (duh). I was asked to produce a quick, basic sketch of my idea(s). It freaked me out a bit knowing I would be somewhat competing against several other artists who more than likely would have actual computer graphic/photoshop experience. My kind of artwork is strictly old school. It's from the heart, from the mind, and all done by hand. Such things, for me, cannot be rushed. I knew good and well I was probably in over my head with all these "youngins" and their computer technology and fancy schoolin' and their super techno hearts and minds. But like a trooper I submitted a quick sketch anyway. Sharon, the lead singer, was so sweet when she wrote back explaining she showed my design to the band and they all decided upon another designer but she would keep my info for possible future designs. (I think I almost heard little "bless your heart" in there too-Thank you Sharon) So there you have it- "WHAT in the free world was I thinking?"
I would still like to take a moment to give Sharon and her band *KINK ADOR* a little plug on my little blog. They are a very cool Indie Rock band out of Nashville who have played with the Muzik Mafia who includes such artists as Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson and John Anderson. Sharon describes the band as "a little 'left of center' kinda different kinda kinky, and in love with music". KINK ADOR!
