It's Been A Long Time Coming...
Hello one and all of the two people who might still read this blog(me being one of the two, the other being my friend Ashley who threatened bodily harm to me if I don't start updating my blog on a weekly basis soon.).
Once again, sorry that it's been forever since I've updated. What can I say, other than life has been crazy and hectic as always--but also to much fun to spend to much time in front of a computer. I got a job at the "Comcastic" Convergys call center( Which seems to me to be a text book case of how NOT to run a company. ), I've been getting ready to move into my first apartment(with my Cool Beans roomie/best friend and scarey-as-hell editor, Ashley :) ), I've discovered the awesomeness that is a British TV show called DOCTOR WHO!!!, and I've been increasing my efforts to make a living as a comic book artist by about 300%--I even helped tech a workshop this past week on Comic Book layouts AND I've even had a date(well....It wasn't really a date, but still. :P). I'ts been a crazy summer. Alot in my life has changed and is pushing me in the direction to finally grow into a more independent, responsible, and confident person.
All in all, I feel like I'm moving into the next stage of my life. From the low self-esteem, irresponsible, and lazy teenager and into the low self-esteem, irresponsible, and somewhat-less-lazy young 20-something. :P j/k
I'm honestly am going to try and update this blog more often--either with sketches or submission pages from my portfolio. Lately I've decided that if I want to work in comics, that I need to get used to working two full-time jobs first--Working 40 hours a week at convergys and then working 40 hours a week studying and drawing sample comic book pages from home. So I'm not getting much sleep(except on the weekends.), but I do feel like I'm finally moving in a faster pace towards what I want to accomplish. Soon I'll be making enough from my art so that I can go part-time at Convergys and eventually I'll quit my "day job" all together and work from home or in a studio with my other artist friends. I know that at first I won't be making alot of money in comics but, even if I only make as much as I do at Convergys every month, it will still be worth five times more to me than my usualy paycheck is.
So yeah, busy as a bee. And, actually, I probably need to be getting back to work. So I'll end this little update here. I've included some more rect art in this post that I hope you enjoy. The Ood is a slave race alien that's in an episode or two of Doctor Who and David Tennant is the Guy who plays the Doctor, and then also a caricature of actor Robert Pattinson(EDWARD!!!), and last, but not least, is Time-Agent Mack--My own creation, inspired by the Doctor Who and Torchwood series.
Later peoples! B)
