Archives: 2005
When last we left our intrepid journey through the art timeline of Ellen, we were at the tailend of 2004. I'd given notice at my day job, and was buoyantly sallying forth to a shining career as a world famous illustrator. Or fantasy artist product enabler. Or something. What really happened at the start of 2005 was that I started to catch up on everything I said I'd do but never had time to while juggling drafting and business and everything else. It took me eight months to cross everything off of the old to do list. It was not a spectacular successful time: just as I dumped money into an advertising program, my webpage crashed and was out of service for SEVEN months, partly due to spammers - to be followed promptly by the Portrait Adoption site going down for six months while I waited on other people to fix and redo it. The printing company I found to do the books I want to publish ran out on me without warning and left me dangling for months. Jake's dad died. I went to Dragon*Con - and sold nothing in the art show. The $1800 printer I bought had to be replaced within 2 weeks. It was not an auspicious beginning to my fresh freelance career... but I did do a lot of art! (That may be the best thing to be said for 2005...)
