I am looking for new opportunity! If you are looking for a comic artist, either covers and/or interiors, character design, storyboards, or illustrations, DM me and let me know! If not, please share my name around!
I look forward to drawing your ideas!
Fan of cartoons? Wish the rest of the world were like that? I got you. I'm doing a series called Toon Up, where I turn your favorite tv, movie, and musical folks into cartoons.
Norman Bates from Bates Motel is up first. We are offering limited run prints. Starting at $5 plus shipping! If you're a fan, you gotta get this!
After a lot of thinking, planning, and prayer, I think I have a plan for this year. I am changing some things, and adding a lot of new things. So I am about to be very busy this year. So there will be a MASSIVE drop off in fan art stuff I am drawing and posting.
But I AM going to be drawing. I am going to be working on Stabbity Bunny, working on my Commercial Break comic strip, building a character and prop design portfolio, and developing some animation pitches. I am also taking classes for writing so I will be developing some spec movie scripts, tv scripts. Later in the year I hope to also start working on a novel idea I have as well as learning storyboarding.
With some luck, elbow grease, and blessings, I hope 2017 will be the year I stop spinning the wheels and actually start moving forward.
Wish me luck and send up a prayer for me, if you are so inclined!
Thanks and love all you!
Sometimes we know...
where we want to go, who we want to be, what we want to do. And we begin along the road.
But sometimes things change...
even miles and miles from where we started, miles and miles toward where we thought we were going.
Sometimes we don't know...
what is next, where to go. Should we continue along the road to where we thought we wanted to go, just because we are so close? Should we admit we don't want to be there anymore, and change the road we are on despite the loss of all those miles?
Sometimes we know...
if we want to be happy we have to change. We have to accept we do not want to go the way we were, we don't want to go back to where we were. The only thing left is to find the new road that can lead to where we really, deep in our heart, want to be. Knowing it is a hard road. It is scary. But that is the only thing we can do, make sure we do what we need to do to be happy and make the best life we can for ourselves and for the ones we love.
That was the sound of the gear changing. Heading in a new direction to the place I want to be. I hope you keep riding with me!
We all have dreams. As a child we would all dream of some goal we yearned for when we grew up. And in most of those dreams there is a nugget of a hope that in this dream, we can be a hero.
Whether we dream of being a hero through being a firefighter, a doctor, a cop, or a teacher. We may dream of being something we can change the world through, a minister, a scientist, or a president. Someone who can show the world the way it could be and how to make changes, like an actor, a singer, or an artist. We all dream of doing something that impacts the lives around us. Because we all want to be a hero.
I want to be a hero. I want to create. I want to create cartoons. Will this change the world? Will this bring peace? Will this save lives? No. Probably not. But, it could help me make a better life for myself. For the love of my life. To allow us to begin a family and raise children. To have the money to make things easier for the ones in my life who are suffering and are in need. I want to be a hero.
And I know it can be done. There are amazing creators who have not only paved the way, but cut down the vines and thorns, who faced down the fearful animals of doubt, naysayers, and fear. Their sacrifices have made a field for us all, regardless of the field we are in. We look to them as proof. We look to those doing what we want to do, as leaders, And we look to those with the same dreams we have, who are walking the same paths we walk, as brothers in arms.
So today, ask yourself, do you want to be a hero? Do you want to live a dream? Is there a goal you have wanted to make it too? Then I ask you, pick up your arms, lift your head high, embrace the hero inside you, and take steps forward. You can do it. WE can do it. Never give up. The world needs heroes!
