For Fun not Profit (Warning: Poorly Drawn Alpacas)

Somewhere along the way in my time as a freelancer, I decided that if a task didn’t help me in my career, it probably wasn’t worth doing. I don’t know when this happened, but I spent the majority of my time on projects which would help me “further” myself as a writer, marketer, coordinator, or whatever hat I was wearing that day. But today I had a thought.

Why can’t I just do something for the sake of doing something?

For fun.

Not for profit or some misguided sense that I must always focus on my career.

So, I started drawing alpacas. Yes, you read that right.

Not because I have a secret alpaca project, not because I was hired to draw alpacas and not at all because I am good at drawing. I’m not. In fact, calling them alpacas is a stretch. Exhibit A:

A happy alpaca

But it was relaxing, it was fun and it was very, very silly.

A sleepy alpaca

Did you know Alpacas hum when they are happy? Don’t you feel better for knowing that?

Taking time out to do something stupid is something I would encourage everyone to do. After all, life isn’t a race to the finish line. Let’s enjoy the ride!

A fighty alpaca and a confused alpaca? I’m not really sure what I was thinking.
