    "Complacency is the womb of mediocrity."
    HELL YES!

    Focal point of my personal philosophy. Never stand still, always keep moving, be a shark in desire. You stop moving, you can't breathe, you die!

    Nothing is forever. Movement causes change.

    ALWAYS!
    "Everything must serve the idea. The means used to convey the idea should be the simplest and clear. Just what is required. No extra images. To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."

    that's what they should teach in schools from day one until graduation. although it's all a little more involved than just that.

    This is something you think about, maybe know subconsciously and try. But, until you see it written down, until you see it experienced through the eyes of another, it doesn't really hit home; the heart doesn't really believe.

    Jason, thanks for posting this. It says everything I believe but have not expressed.

    Cheers!

    Good thread guys

    Actually a week or two all my video games got stolen (wii/ps2, about 40 games D. Not that cool of a situation, but in a way it's something I needed to happen but didn't have the will to do myself (not that I'm obsessed, but hey an hour or so a day of gaming really cuts into your drawing time when you've got a busy schedule). Living without distraction has been a weakness for me, so I'm glad to have the chance to read some inspiring words relating to that aspect of being an artist.
