Where's Punky?

Post by Jody Rife on Fri Jan 20, 2012 6:50 am

Hey there, just wandering if anyone has heard from Punky (AKA Sandra) lately? I used to enjoy reading her posts and seeing her artwork. She hasn't been on here for a long time it seems.

Remember, She had some big changes going on. Moving away from home for an externship, and going double-time on school. I think she's just been busy with an exciting new life. Go Punky!

Melinda is good, we see eachother sometimes. Not really painting as she went to school in the fall and has two little girls already. I think she is starting to paint more lately but is teaching spanish somewhere so doesn't have a ton of time. Hasn't had the baby yet, I think she is due in May or something - supposed to be a boy.

Wow, I had no idea Iíd be missed so much! Hey everyone! Well, Perry did contact me on facebook, and since I have that connected to my phone I get updates and can update my status from my phone, since I havenít had decent internet in a long time (part of the reason I havenít been online). I am at a friendís house using her internet right now so I can talk to yíall. Smile
Well, as Geekophile said, I had moved out of the house to Sturgis, MI for my externships. I have since graduated at the top of my class but still remain unemployed. I managed to hold down a job at Walmart (which I hated) until my lease ran out. When time came to renew my lease, I found out the apartment complex was going to raise my rent by over $100 per month, and seeing as I was barely making by each month even with help from my parents, I just couldnít swing that, so I have moved back home. Iíve gone back to subbing in the local schools until I can find a job in a hospital. Iíve applied at over 50 hospitals and clinics over the Indiana and Michigan area, but still no dice. Sad

As far as painting goes, I havenít done much since all this has happened. I did do a couple events for my apartment complex, for which they took $100 of my rent for each event, which I really appreciated. I came home a couple times to help mom with a couple of gigs she booked and to help her at the pumpkin patch she landed a painting contract with this past fall. I have no new pictures to add as my camera died just after the 4th of July this past yearÖ HOWEVER I did just get a new camera as a late Christmas gift from my parents. Itís a Cannon SX40 HS, and I love it! Next week Iím flying down to Orlando, Florida as the other half of my Christmas presentÖ my parents are taking my to Universal Studios to see the Harry Potter village, lol. Iím meeting them down there as they just boarded a cruise ship for an 8 day cruise this morning.

I did find out not long ago that Iíve been asked to teach a face painting class at the 2012 Midwest Clown Association convention. Now, I did teach at this convention 2 years ago, but that was because my alley was one of the hosting alleys, so I had an in with them. I donít think Iíd have been asked if I werenít a member of that alley, as most people donít want a teenager teaching an intermediate/advanced class at a function like that. But this time, My alley is NOT hosting it, Iíve been asked simply because I apparently was a success 2 years ago. Iíve also heard through the grapevine that I am going to be asked to teach face painting at the Clown Forum Spring Fling this March.

Anyway, thatís about it as far as what Iíve been up to. Smile

Hey, great to hear from you again, Punky. You sure have been a busy lady. Hope you find the job that you need real soon. Have fun with your family at Universal. I've never been but it looks like it would be amazing.

That is awesome that you will be teaching a painting class again. You must have done a super job the first time around. Smile Hope to see you around the forum again soon.

Welcome back, Tilly! It's a shame about your apartment and about the job search (I know, I've been actively seeking steady employment since I returned from Florida), but it's good to hear you'll be teaching a painting class Smile Best of luck to you!

OMG Universal studios was great! I really only had 2 things on my list to do there: Buy a wand of my own and try butterbeer. We seriously could have left the park after that and I'd have been thrilled. BUT we stayed and went for 2 days, saw "almost" everything. It was awesome!

I do have to admit, I'm guilty of seeking out the face painters and just standing back and watching them for a bit. I don't know why I'm so fascinated by watching other face painters paint especially in BIG parks like that. But I had to hand it to the lady I stopped and talked to, she had a lot of talent for just being thrown into that job one day with next to no related expirience.

What fascinated me the most what what the customers sat in while they were painted... Well.. it was more of a BED. a bed with the top half raised about a foot so that the customer was laying down with the head elevated right to the perfect height for the artist. I was jealous, that bed looked really comfy too, lol. But, I had to think how I could not work that way. I love my directors chair and how I can walk all around it, which saves my back a lot of pain.

Anyway, I definately want to go back someday, but with someone who will ride the bigger roller coasters with me... my parents do like going upside down, and I didn't want to make them wait for me while I went alone.

When I sold merchandise at Disney World, I got a chance to talk to some of the face painters there and they seemed to enjoy their job, but I've been told by artists who have moved on to bigger and better things that the companies used by the major theme parks prefer painters with no experience at all! How is that fair?
