Just a minor core dump.
There is that moment when you pause and look at your own art and think, what the hell am I doing. Am I still clawing at this wall? how many years has it been?
Then I looked at the dA stat on my page. 10 years. good lord. That is a long haul.
Well I'm not giving up. ONWARD!
2014 was a heck of a year. I didn't get nearly done what I wanted, nor did I see the growth I wanted, but it had some really good high notes.
I have gotten back into drawing every day, and this was the year of streaming. I made some great new friends through the streams, and it has kept me from falling into the hole of not drawing. that is a dark hole friends.
I also used manga studio and photoshop far more than before. Painter is still my old sidekick, but I've found just trying new apps has pushed me out of the rut that one can fall into that is set by the tools.
I did almost no traditional work this year. I think thats a side effect of streaming so much. I'll have to correct that. Need to get back to the copics and dip pens.
I'm already getting info for San Diego Comic -Con 2015. yikes!
Every year I get punked by San Diego comic-con. At the last minute I stumble around trying to get stuff ready and never seem to have what I want done.
I am going to start getting ready now. no joke. its in July, but I want to have a load of new work for it. I'm thinking a new artbook, final issue of Native Drums (maybe a trade paper back of it all) and something new. Chuck has a new story idea that sounds freakin great.
