Jake’s Shirts on the Spot

With no real income and desperate to earn money to support the next costly steps for music success, my new goal is to earn $100 / day, as inspired by an NPR interview about a guy who did just that after finding himself unemployed. I’ve been looking for jobs and, honestly, I don’t want one. It would simply mean too many hours away from music = not so smart when commited to being anĀ outlier.

Alas! Today, while at Candler Park Fall Fest an idea came to me while meandering between artists in booths aplenty; I’ve decided to start an ever-so-simple business, drawing cute, funny, and weird things on shirts, purses, and maybe even shoes.

It's gonna be this easy.

I started drawing when I was pretty young, like age seven. Weekends at dad’s apartment would be spent blowing through stacks of printer paper he “borrowed permanently”, drawing everything from action figures to the “Sea Duck” from the hit cartoon series, Tailspin. So anyway, when I go home to Cincinnati I should scan some of those.

For now, you can look at how my skills have improved (the five years of design school probably didn’t hurt). You may find me at Piedmont Park in Atlanta, doodling away and getting paid, $100/day.
