    SOO, I had a lot of time where I needed to go live my life outside of art. Unfortunately, life outside of art is rough and far too serious. I left Ringling back in January when I last posted, I think that's what screwed me up so badly. I'd like to start drawing again, kind of feel my way back into it. Also, my friend here on CA Mike Dagata (Helzon) passed away a few weeks ago (rest in peace man), and it REALLY got me thinking about a lot of things. So I decided I need to stop feeling sorry for myself and start drawing again. Here's what I've done in the past couple weeks, sorry for the quality, it'll take some time to get back into the "swing" of things. Hopefully I can be part of this site again!!!! OPTIMISM!!!

    Welcome back. I really identify with what you're saying about your state of mind and your commitment to art.

    I went through a lot of the same things when I graduated from college with a degree in graphic design and no real art skills or prospects...I went through about a year and a half of being generally depressed and aimless, no sense of urgency.

    Going to Insomnia in '06, and especially hearing the talk given by NCSoft's...I think creative director, about the nature of the modern conceptart industry, gave me a real feeling of 'I can do this'. The last two years or so have been the real beginning of my serious pursuit of art, which is pretty late in life, but I really can't see going any other way.

    My grandfather's death last year, while my career was still stagnant and without any positive signs, galvanized me into being bolder, less risk-averse, and being truly committed, realizing the futility of doubt, of reservations.

    I really feel that once we've made the commitment to art, no matter how much we regret lost time and lost opportunities, we have to feel joy at having made the only step of the journey that really matters: the decision to never look back and to be relentless in self-improvement. The future starts today!

    I love that it took one post for me to stop again... I've actually been drawing but I very recently and abruptly decided to move back to Florida, and already have to move again. Just a quicker drawing. I've got lots of stuff to post i'll get to scanning it here!! Thanks for all the feedback as always.

    Values and forms look good. No updates I see.

    Are you drawing every day?

    Would just like to say I've flipped through your sketchbook and a lot of the pictures are really just awe inspiring. I hope to have half the talent you have for character design! Keep up the good work!
