  1. I seriously need to follow your example. I love the way you're tracking your goals, and you're making great progress!

    1. Thank you so much! I don't know what I'd do without my goal tracking posts. I'd be so lost!

  2. You're an inspiration! I also love your self caricature.....did you teach yourself to do that?

    1. Thank you so much! I've actually been a caricature artist since I was hired by a company for it at 14. I now draw full time for five agencies and just signed on for two more. The caricature above was a commission. Things are certainly never dull! Thank you again!
