I'm Not Worthy!!!
You’re probably thinking that I’m going to apologies for my content drought since July…I think we’re way beyond that don’t you? I mean it’s obvious that I’m not worthy right? But every good slacker has a “good” excuse right? So here’s mine:
The sun was in my eyes…my alarm clock didn’t go off…my dog chewed my power cord…how bout this one: I suck.
The truth is I’ve had 2 books cancel and one postponed for a year due to the economy – very frustrating. I’ve been working on a bunch of book covers for Element but they prefer I don’t share that work until after they’ve been published. So I’ve been in an art funk since August.
I’ve been filling the rest of my time with a few new money making ventures. Of all things I’ve started stock trading with a great new system I recently found. I never thought I’d become a trader (not traitor haha) but this system was designed for morons so I easily qualified. Also, I’m working with a non-profit company that not only helps people get out of debt – they also help you increase your monthly income. I won’t cross-pollinate this blog by giving the details here but if anyone is interested call me at 801-368-7568.
So what’s up with this video? I finally felt the art deprivation bug chewing on the back of my neck so I decided to do something purely for fun. This photoshop painting was done in just over 10 min. I paint characters like this for my school visits and project them on a movie screen for assemblies. I like to give kids a taste of what my paintings are like and they seem to like it. I love how quiet a few hundred 2nd and 3rd graders become when I start painting my little frog, gator or boar with my Wacom tablet.
Shameless plug alert: I could come to a school near you to paint this lil fella if you want – just put me in touch with your librarian or media specialist.
