“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

It's been a while since one of these.
It's because I'm tired. I'm typically drained towards the end of the year, but this year I am particularly so, but I hope you don't mind if I don't go into details. Let's just say that it's too much life stuff, too much doing the things that you don't really want to do, too many tough choices. You know what I'm talking about, yeah? Point being, I'm tired and I don't know how soon I won't be that way. So I think I will sleep for days and days and see if that helps. Heh.
Anyway, no more posts from me for a while. Though I think Jon will take up the guard and post in my stead - he seems to be doing a fine job while I was gone; even if in his douche-bagerry, he decided to post the ugly unfinished stuff. But I believe he does it because he knows what people like to see. And for that, I am truly grateful. I'm sure he'll update this once in a while. I will be back of course. I can't NOT draw and there's something about sharing it with like-minded people that really makes me happy.
And speaking of being grateful and happy, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to get to know me as much as you can though this little window. Thanks for coming in and sharing your inspiration with me and for saying such generous and humbling comments about my work. On more than one occasion I've been a bit distracted, but one kind word from you is all I needed to get me back to center. You are invaluable, you are amazing, and I cannot wait to see what you are capable of. I am humbled and grander to have had this experience.
I hope you have a great new year. It's a perfect time for a fresh start. I hope you finish what you begin and I hope you find everything you are looking for. As for me, it's time to sleep and not be so tired.
Well, no. It's 6:56AM in Los Angeles. I'm going to go run. Then...then I will sleep. Heh.
Thanks again. "You are so cool."
