Well have pretty much summed up the year in my prior post, it has been good personally. Been working on some web development learning some more advanced techniques which has been interesting. Really loved ZapGalaxy’s new work from yesterday really surprised me. We had to do a patch up job on a wall that been tagged and we both applied a modular fix it system which worked well and will be used for future issues when they arise. Seem to be more interested in web development at the minute but we have some more work coming up in the new year with aerosol. More work in the inner west basically, as an aside it was amazing to see so many people getting photos taken in front of the wall. Had to wait 40 minutes and sat in the shade while young Asian couples, kids, more asian couples had their photos taken in front of the wall. Then when we are painting there must have been at least 50 people throughout the day taking photos in progress, finished etc etc. Really good to see that our work is attractive to tourists, it is colourful full of patterns and shading. That was all within a period of six hours so the photos must go on all day, we need a plaque or something.
Well thats it until around the 13th of January for painting I have a pile of other work to obsess over in the meantime, have a happy new year everyone and don’t drink too much at least that is what my Dad would say, stay off the alcohol, well I don’t drink so that is easy.
It has been a pretty big year, feel as though things started taking a good turn in 2013 as different opportunities arose and 2014 was a building year. Zap got some good walls and shared the love we painted our biggest project in April in Newtown with Lister. We did May lane twice the first time we got some grief and redeemed ourselves on the second round. We stood our ground and for a pair of dinosaurs our painting was fresh and inventive. I even made a return to some serious lettering which I didn’t expect. To think it isn’t quite over yet, there are still a couple of surprises left before the year ends. Managed to build on my work from 2013 and get more jobs in 2014 too. 2015 seems like it is going to be a big one, I have diversified and have a few different income channels which means I won’t be sitting around waiting for work from one stream.
Already have been offered a lot of work, currently on holidays from work but I am still working on freelance jobs and people want stuff done so if I keep it open and try and use all my different skills I can make more great work. The thing is just not to say no, my way around possible failure has been incremental payments so people don’t leave me unpaid for my hard work. I am very excited about all of the projects coming up and very happy with the current project I am working on. Very lucky to be working with people who think differently and want to take risks. What a year it has been and what a year to come.
