Do I just say, hey I will pencil people character requests for 10 bucks?  If so, I gotcha, I need extra cash to feed my kids, lol.  No... Really, I have 3 sons and a daughter. :)

I'm drawing like a maniac.  Each piece is better than the one before.  If only I can get to draw everyday, not sketch but really draw. This weekend I'm working on "Gatman" and Appleseed pages, see if I can't get some real work.

Word, I'm Broke.  I have a job, so far at least.  Its an administrative job, project coordination to be exact, long hours but salary, so NO OT.  I need to get back to my artistic roots, so I'm drawing like a flaming werewolf during a full moon.  Anybody need artwork, sketches, doodles, art trades, I don't care, I need to draw and draw and draw until the madness is silenced or my right arm needs amputation.

Okay I always needed to tryout for a comic job.  I think I'm ready, someone said they wondered what a Bat-Man comic by me would look like, so I'm going to draw one.  I am going to make it my own, since I'm not getting paid for it, and redesign some of the characters. Instead of Bruce, I'm going to use Jason Todd (AKA Robin II).  Stay tuned for concepts and eventually panels.

Finally, I think I'm almost at a skill level that I should be, for a pro...

Note to all illustrators, don't stop drawing, ever, for any reason.  I stopped because I had to feed 4 babies.  Got a job as a graphic designer, then account management for a graphics company.  Trust me graphic design is not a lot of drawing, and account management...  Well let me say, you see a lot of art.  Now I just need to work on backgrounds and in animate objects.

NEED MASTERS DEGREE! Why? Because, I need to take my talent more seriously.  I feel like I am really good artist, but not great.  The only thing holding me back is discipline and hard work.  Am I lazy, or just American?  May be its my support system or lack there of...
