    Big changes in my life...and ConceptArt.Org

    A career update today, as it relates directly to the positive improvements happening here on ConceptArt.org the past few days, and so I thought to share. I am taking big steps in my life and career and after much thought, I have decided to return my focus to the entertainment, event, and media industries where I made my career. As of today, I have stepped forward from my management position with TAD to concentrate on building ConceptArt.Org into the vibrant portal I have dreamed of for so long and to develop a related entertainment IP and technology company that I am inspired and completely excited about. I am very happy with the foundation that was established for TAD and honored to have worked with and taught so many students. Thank you all for your support and I look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks!

    Feels good to know that you're back.
    But I already shared my thoughts with you, and I am damn impressed how everything is going lately.
    For myself, I can't thank you enough for this site and I am looking forward for future stuff to work on with all you guys.

    Thanks Jason, welcome back and now it's time to rock this thing, haha!

    Very good news! TAD looks fantastic but having it divert attention from CA made things quiet around here... very happy to know things will be busy again soon. Good luck on your future endeavors Jason!

    Fantastic, thanks for sharing that Jason. Already there is a palpable enthusiasm on the forums that has been missing for some time.

    Oh man! can't wait to see the ideas brought to CA I'm sure you've been stewing on from your experiences with TAD! Reverie was one of the best times I've had and I'm sure there's lots of great new crafted moments on the horizon! :]

    Thanks! It was at Reverie that I announced what I had planned and dreamed up for TAD...and to come full circle now is an honor too.

    It has been the talent, enthusiasm and support that exists within theres pages, that has helped me keep the faith in my

    I'm glad.
    Good to know you'll be building upon your creation of CA and feeling better for it; along with helping the community of artists here.
    Even though I'm yet to of created my sketchbook here, the community has helped me numerous times.
    Cheers.

    I feel I lack perspective to accurately express a more direct response to this thread,
    as it has been less than a week since I joined.

    However, during the few weeks prior to joining that I spent reading and viewing sketchbooks,
    I became deeply impressed with what CA is now. There are an enormous amount of talented
    artists and constructive advisers who actively participate in this community. Cheers to all
    of you!

    After reading the original post that the site is going to be even better, I just wanted to
    say thank you somehow... so thank you! =)

    I hope that over time I will become a meaningful contributor myself.

    I already said welcome back and thanks for your hard work elsewhere, Jason, so I wont get repetitve. Just adding my ongoing support and it's nice to have you around on a regular basis. Also, good luck with everything!

    This is the only art site I hang out on regularly - nowhere else has the same hard work attitude that kicks me up the arse and keeps me pushing myself to improve - so seeing all the positive changes going on and hearing of good things to come is like the cherry on the cake.

    The place is really starting to come together and I cant wait to see what comes next!

    Good to have you back! I look forward to the changes.

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    There is only one thing I can say about this:

    Fuck yeah!

    "Never regret thy fall from grace, O' spirit of Icarian flight, for the greatest tragedy of them all to face, is to never feel the burning bright"
    Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

    Thanks everyone. It feels good to be making headway and taking steps. The site is feeling better here already I think, and that is just temp stuff. The new site, news page, and image viewer are on the way next, as are some cutting edge promotional tools which every one of us needs, including the TAD students, the pros here, and all the rest of us who like to make stuff!
