Art school is out for the summer. Next year I have two more part-time semesters, then I'm out on my own! It would be pretty awesome to pay the rent this summer with commissions, so if you know anyone who needs album art, concept art, tattoo designs, logo designs, etc, send them a link to www.venlocklear.com
Also, for all of you fantasy artists out there, you need to check out www.theartorder.com. It's a blog and website run by Jon Schindehette, one of the art directors at Wizards of the Coast. He basically hosts a bunch of challenges and give you feedback on your submissions. VERY cool stuff, get over there and make an account RIGHT NOW.
