This was done for the Six Sigma Blog. I wrote a little story about the subject, and needed some support artwork. So I decided to make the job fun, by seeing if I could represent weight well. I wanted him to look tired, and weighed down. Hope you like it, and check out the story for this pic on the other blog.

Prosper Magazine

I'm finally getting going on this blog. I wanted to post a proof of an upcoming article in Prosper Magazine (Jan-07) where yours truly, has an illustration. Yup, that's my handiwork. Those guys at prosper are real easy to work with. Scott, the AD, has a unique way of seeing things, and it usually makes sense. He's an artist himself, so he knows how to put things in an "artist's format"- if that makes sense? Anyway, it was a lot of fun, and I hope I can work with them again real soon. "Pssst! Hey Scott-need anymore art?"

Well, here we go. I just opened this blog in order to track my new life as a freelance illustrator. This is all new and exciting to me, so I thought I'd keep a log of what's going on.

I have been drawing stuff all my life, and have been pretty good at it. However, like most artists, I've been taking my talents for granted. I would draw things from cartoons to logos for people, with out a thought of why I am constantly asked to do so. Drawing has never been difficult for me, so I just assumed it was easy for everyone else as well. So if everybody else could do it, then there would be no possible way I could work as an artist for a living; there is just too much competition. I realize now how ridiculous this is, but for a person, like me, who had never explored the possibilities for becoming a professional artist, this self-defeatist type attitude was a perfect fit.

Now, thanks to my family for encouraging me to try, I am finally putting my work out there. Thanks especially to SNO, for teaching me the way the industry really works. I may not ever be able to quit my day job, and make art my sole profession, but everything I put ink to paper, I feel like I am doing what I was born to do.
