Wow...it's been a while since I've penned a journal entry, and I haven't posted anything new in color for some time too. Plus there are requests and commissions that I need to work on while dealing with one hell of a bout of just feeling run-down and wondering if there's any hope and if I should just quit all this and find something else.
...But thankfully, friends pulled me back from that abyss. It's always good to talk to friends who knows you better than you know yourself, because they will give you straightforward and blunt advice--not to knock you down or to chuck your work in the trash, but because they know you've got something that's worth a damn but you can be more. It just needs a push from you.
So, following some much-needed advice, I've opened up Tumblr page. Now, I know the reputation of Tumblr, but rest assured--I'm NOT leaving DA. I will post here, and on Facebook, so expect to see a cross-posting on all sites. Some stuff may only be on Tumblr, but not to worry. Consider this another step in getting my work out there in regards to searching for work--I definitely want to get back into something long-term, whether it's animation, illustration, or design--but in the case of the first, I have to re-learn a few things.
But at least I have gotten my foot in the door, even if it was a few years ago. Still, I'm going to feel like William Munny from Unforgiven, when he tries several times to get back on his horse.
If you want to take a glance, and/or follow, go here:
Also, no NSFW stuff for now. It's not that I would not do stuff like that, but that's because it will be a private matter between myself and clients. Of course, should I ever do anything like that, it will be....well, let's just say there's a reason why Stephen King, Isaac Asimov, created their respective pseudonyms "Richard Bachmann" and "Paul French", and "Cordwainer Bird".
And if you do visit or follow...you have my eternal thanks.
I sell my soul, but at the highest rates.
