Anita C. Gleason
United States
Hi! My name's Anita. I'm a teacher in Northern California (yayyy for teaching!). I'm primarily a hobbyist hoping to get better, although I have illustrated a few children's books for storyteller Maureen Barry. Married with one teenaged son. The only other noteworthy thing about me is that I'm a walking, talking contradiction, so don't take anything I say seriously. It'll probably change!
Interests
It's the end of the year, and time for reflection once again.  Strangely enough, the end of this year has not put me in a spiral of self-recriminations for not having done enough or made enough art, or made enough progress on my art, etc. etc.  I guess it doesn't really matter what the "enough" is...it simply will never be enough, and for some reason, at the end of this year, it doesn't matter to me.  It's both a scary and liberating feeling.  With the winter break from work, I've been more productive art-wise than I've been in ages.  I feel hopeful for the future, and if all continues, then not only will I have new and better artwork coming up soon, but I might feel adventuresome enough to either sell it online or take it around to some of the smaller galleries in my area.  Here's wishing myself some creative renewal and joy, creativity, and inspiration to the rest of the world!

I'm still not dead, just working my butt off at a new job with a steep learning curve!

I'm not really dead, just been really busy with work, and trying to find a permanent teaching position. I promise that all those WIPs I started will eventually get finished...sometime...soon...maybe.

Thanks yelloranger! I don't upload as much as I like, but my goal this year is to submit something at least 2x a month. I have 4 large sketches I'm trying to complete, but until Xmas break, I'll probably only be uploading smaller stuff, and images done for Illustration Friday. I hope you stay tuned!

P.S.
If you see something that looks "off" or just plain wrong, let me know about that too! I'm trying to get better, so although it's a blow to my ego, I still appreciate when people point out what's wrong as well.
