Happy Easter, everyone!

I hope you're all enjoying your three-day weekend and stuffing yourselves full of chocolate eggs. I'm going to take it slow today, since lately I've been pretty busy finishing up some work at the drawing board. I got the last pages drawn for The Boy With the Moon in His Eyes, which means I'll finally be done once they're coloured! It's been a long haul, but I can't wait until the job is complete. That reminds me, I forgot to mention that our Kickstarter campaign for the project turned out to be a bust, amassing only a quarter of our intended goal. That's embarrassing. :doh: Nevertheless, the author is committed to getting his book printed and he'll manage to sort out the financing somehow. I still want to thank everyone who supported and backed the project.

With the book nearing completion, I'm reminded that I need to look for other sustainable sources of work. That's when I got a call last week from an entrepreneur who plans on starting his own combined arts school in South London (with a strong emphasis on dance). He was impressed with my work and is considering hiring me for all the marketing and designs of the school, as well as training students in art class.

That's right: If all goes well, I'm going to become an art teacher! :wow:

I never imagined myself in this position before. I have the knowledge, but no formal training in a teaching role. The closest I came was when I first moved to London and I was working out of the Ilford computer room where classes are held for jobseekers. (I wasn't part of the class, I just didn't have my own laptop.) I started assisting others with the course so much that I sort of became a second hand to the instructor there. Still, I'm more than a little intimidated about managing my own class in a school. I've reached that point where I don't really think about how I draw, I just draw it. I still remember this bloke from my web design course who obviously wasn't a real teacher, just some amateur who was roped in to teach basic HTML. God help me if I ever turn into that guy. I guess this could be an opportunity for me to revise my training and translate that into a comprehensive coursework for eager young minds.

There's still a lot to consider before all this gets underway, though. For one thing, I still haven't seen the campus or know much about the student demographic. Equipment needs to be purchased, plans drawn out and various logistics. I may even need to move out, which I'm hesitant to do because I love this house and the people in it. Places like this are hard to come by, and South London offers few favourable alternatives. I'll stay on top of this, since it could be good for me in the long run. Instead of harshly criticizing people online, I'll get to harshly criticize them in person. This is going to be fun! :devilish:
