Man it is awesome to see all this progress. Were it not for CA.. I really wouldnt know anything about drawing or painting. When I first found this place, it was like I had a realization of what true skill and talent was all about.. and I knew I didn't have it But after lurking for awhile (far too long) and reading through all of the helpful tutorials and critiques, I realized it was something within everyone's grasp if they just worked on it. Finally around June of last year, I decided to go for it, start a sketchbook and see what happens. So far art has been a crazy trip.. some of the most frustrating and most enjoyable times of my life. Meeting blankslatejoe and jack frost, cotron and metalwinds.. hanging and talking with so many good people at the workshop in SF.. I'll never forget these moments. You guys are great and I'll always remember the encouragement you've given me, both directly and indirectly. Anyways, here's where the past year and a half has gotten me so far.
