"You want to go where everybody knows your name, and they are all glad that you came..." I'm here thinking about the past few weeks. The places I've been, the people I've met, the memories I've made. What was I looking for? And did I find it?
I find that this can be a physical place. I am looking for my next "home". Where would I settle in a new phase of growth as a person, an artist, and a man developing personal relationships? Then I started to think that the place is also in my mind. I need to strengthen the walls of my thoughts so that I can go there and place my faith in making better decisions. Wait, my heart and emotions are a place that needs to be developed. The notes tell that "anonymity breeds sin, that we hate the light for it brings exposure to the truth."
My surroundings, external and internal, tell me that I'm ready to move forward. I am able to share and take on life, not alone, but with others that will strengthen me. I've been alone long enough. On my recent trip, God put persons in place to support not just my journey, but allow me to carry mutual burdens without shame. New friends, mature dialogue, love without expectations. I'm ready
Thank you Sacramento! My second sitting at Sac Anime, and I can only praise the organizers on this amazing event. The fans continue to support the arts, with their cosplay, their discussions, and by spending time with artists like me. This year I came with a plan of releasing something new everyday. The first day was to draw caricatures. It's something I enjoy doing, and it was a good way to warm myself to the crowd that attends all three days.
On day two I released my newest print, an addition to last year's Smash Brothers Brawl. I've decided to make prints that stand alone or combine. This is my first attempt. I wanted to create a more mature version of the characters, using Alex Ross and his work as an inspiration. What do you think?
By day three I had knocked out a series of commissions. I had some return fans, but I hope to keep in contact with some new ones. I'm learning about putting out updates, and I hope to keep my fans better informed to my event schedule and upcoming artwork releases.
Thank you to everyone who spent their time to entertain me, humor me, or amuse me. I will return!
