do what makes you happy. Do what you were meant to do.
Don't wait for permission, perfect conditions, or metaphysical signs from above.....
do it anyway.
Do it now and do it with all the passion and courage you got.
One day it will be your last day.... what will you have accomplished by waiting?

So it just occurred to me that i have done roughly 750 drawings for ebay this year.
That does not include all the other prep sketches, figure drawing sessions, portraits and anything else.
that no matter what else was going on... no matter how great or horrible it was... I sat down and did the drawings.
Seven hundred and fifty times.
Can i be broken?

think they deserve a museum show right out the gate.
NO matter how much god-given talent, or fancy-ass degree you may have, you have to do your time in the shithouses, the coffee shops, and the dives to earn your way to the "big time"
You need to practice or the "big time"
. These "little shows" give you the chance to hone your skill, and test your mettle.
To learn how to make art on a schedule, to hang a show, to promote yourself, to price yourself, to build a following, and interact with the crowd.
It gives you experience. The one thing you don't
So when that big time comes... you will truly be ready.
Because you have paid your dues and did your time.
So shut up and make some art.

I'm not about rest on any laurels or be staisfied. There's always room for improvement. Demand more. Shoulder more responsibility. Dig a little deeper in to the subconscious. Be a little more honest.
Even if it hurts.
Especially if it hurts.
Something I learned from all those years of sports. Pain is the investment for something better. Pain is involved in most transformations. When pain is involved, it's not work.... it's love.
This is what I love.
