There's an otherwise useless thread in the Lounge that's been closed, but it contained this post from Jason that I thought shouldn't slip into obscurity. So here it is:

SO inspiring. Thank you Jason and thank you Elwell for reposting.
This needs to be stickied and sent to everyone who posts on how bored or unmotivated or uninspired they are. I know I needed this. So easy to wallow in self pity and laziness, we forget how blessed and privileged we actually are, and how much potential all of us have.

wow i love hearing the back stories of artist, it gives you hope that someday you can make it to because they started from pretty much the same place most of us are now.
-Sketch Book Updated Sporadically-
Tumbler & Wookmark (finished pieces and Cool stuff I find)
-Facebook(always on but never post)-
If you see me on FB, or CA Talk to me, never to busy to talk and love to hear from you, chat me up about anything (Music, Games, art, ect)
If anyone is interested in streams or hangouts let me know!
Humbling indeed. I definately need to re assess my priorities.
"Astronomy offers an aesthetic indulgence not duplicated in any other field. This is not an academic or hypothetical attraction and should require no apologies, for the beauty to be found in the skies has been universally appreciated for unrecorded centuries."
I have this sudden urge to just shake Jason's hand.
A fine example of the possibilities that come with tenacity
Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die
In a recent Interview with SiDEBAR (that i've listened to a million time) Jason mentioned something about being independent and on his own and i always wondered what he meant and wished he would've elaborated on it more. Thanks for the repost Elwell.
Just think people, this was before the internet REALLY kicked off an we became able to grab information and gather resources in an instant. There's no excuse not to be able to teach yourself and grow as an artist independently. Everything and everyone is virtually at your fingertips.
Need to set new goals... before... turning to stone.. arh
It starts today people, i go straight from here to draw some weak points of mine, where will you go?

*note to self: quick your Mofo'ing slacking!
(23:41:52) (ArneLurk) I woner of there are people who have hairy penises

haha just kidding. Good story man is inspiring to read. Especially in these times in the economy.

I come from a very comfortable family background. Not rich or spoiled, but very comfortable. I'm loved for who I am. The advantage of not being accepted for who you are is that you work for it. I will not stagnate.
I've bookmarked this thread for future humbling and motivation. Thank you Jason, Tristan.
I know you hear this and receive a lot of praise for your work and CA but I honestly mean this. This is not an asspat... I wish I could say this to your face. I honestly feel a little ashamed of myself for how stupid and spoiled I have been.
You just changed my life...
Jason, thank you for sharing, and inspiring us all. Thanks also for making this site and bringing us all together. America in general is not a very artistic place. There are a few centers for the arts, but they're few and far between. Historically, I'd say at least half of American artists have studied and/or worked in Europe or other foreign locales. It's very difficult to get a good art education here, and the service your provide here through the site and DVD's to address that is extremely valuable. If you're not in History of Art Ed books now, you probably will be in future revisions.
