Bold and Beautiful

I got this article on my "How to of The Day" called: How to be Bold

Its a really cute read! I'm still on a positive route to change my life. And I have to tell you, its a lot of hard work. Its exciting and sometimes frustrating because some of the things seem impossible. Yes, it will be impossible if I don't do anything about it. I have decided on Monday that my life will be different. Its as simple as that.

I'm going to try my best at New York Comic Con!!! I have to get over my fears of being shy. For two years I've wanted to show work at this convention with the intention of asking artists and editors of what they think and any tips they can share. I would lug over my portfolio and then at the last minute I just shrink back into a corner. I wouldn't talk to anyone because I'm scared that I'm not good enough. The portfolio that I originally brought is outdated by now. I don't feel like I have enough samples, but I will show what I have to at least get some feedback. I can't let another year pass by so I will just go for it even if I don't feel like I'm ready.

Hey, if anyone's art deserves recognition, its certainly you. I've known you since grammar school and your art has only become more trippy and unique since then. This world expects us to be herded like sheep in Corporate America but when we decide break away from the pack, that is when we start to truly feel free and eventually gain the respect and recognition we've worked so hard to achieve.

On another note, I am happy to see that you are updating your page and blogging. After all, every new beginning needs a fresh coat of paint.

Anyway, good luck and I hope you find the success you are searching for. If you don't mind, I want to add you to a new section on my page called Friends of the Dojo. I don't have the biggest site on the web but maybe it will send some hits your way. Good luck and God Bless.

Hi Dave! Thanks so much for your message! Gosh, I'm terrible at responding... but eventually I do lol.

You've always been so supportive even if we kinda lost touch over the years. I'm still around :)

P.S. I didn't see you at Castle Point Anime Con at Steven's this year.
