What It Takes To Fly


Hopes and Dreams
Lift me up
The weight of Reality
Keeps me down

The Sacrifices
I’m willing to make
Of Myself, of Others

This Hubris
A Selfish plight
An Endless flight
And I will learn
What it takes to fly

A new interpretation of one of my old drawings of the same title from 6 years ago.

I’ll also be at Kraken Con this Saturday 9/26/2015 in the dealers hall! This time Kraken Con is going be to hosted on a ship! I’m so excited to see everyone there!   

In other news, check out my new website at It’s still under construction with many pages missing, but it’s a start!
