The way of things
So I am desperately trying to get my commissions out of the way to focus more on drawing for me. I always believed it was more fun when I did it that way. The truth is I have never been much of a conformist when it comes to drawing. For the most part, I draw what, when and how I want to. I haven't been doing as much of that as I like to lately. Truth of the matter is, I draw for a living at work. It's a great job, and I have fun and live comfortably doing it. But there are times when I get home from having drawn for 5 plus hours straight, and then I just want to sit on my ass and watch mindless drivel, (American Idol, Survivor) and some not so mindless, (Lost, Lie To Me, Dollhouse, How I Met Your Mother)
But I'm trying to shake that. Since there is a lot I want to do still. All kinds of creation bouncing round inside this little Loco head of mine.
So I am close to getting to that point.
In the coming months, there will be updates to the sites, Mine, Blogger, Myspace, Facebook and DeviantArt.
I am working on a few projects of a personal nature and a couple of professional ones.
It looks like a good buDdy of mine and I are going to be forming a creative alliance to make some fantastic cartooning goodness. We've collaborated successfully before, why not keep building on it. He remains one of the most awe inspiring creative forces I have known and only great things can come of us continuing to work together.
I plan on putting some social drawing interactions together.
I will be posting Tragic the Clown here so anyone can read it for free. I still think it is a story that should have been read more.
And I plan on giving away free sketch cards.
But most of all, I plan to start drawing more for ME again. After all that's what kept it an escape to begin with.
In the meantime, here is one of those pieces/projects I had bouncing round the head.
