Holiday Over Load

Opps... I think I took on too much before the Christmas day, after meeting with my client about his concept for his descriptive video, I am doing a story board. The client then after wards went for my high bid on having him and 5 of his family painted in high detail Caricature style.
(Shared the style he wants below) I still have to do my Childrens book cover of "Arnie the Pig". The Coloring in of a cartoon for a clown, and the painting for my friend Julio the hawaiin will have to be put off to the side, until after the holidays! Please pray for me to be remained calm, but swift!
