Post 371

Gah, I always promised myself I would try my best to avoid typos in my first interview...but I caught a blaring one...'mulit' instead of 'multi' when talking about the dinosaur I drew...ugh!!!

Also, I just wanted to address something a few people had e-mailed me about. They had told me 'sorry for the negative comments you got.' First off, the ones they were talking about weren't that negative, it just isn't what those folks are into. I personally see them all as 'positive'! In the fine art world, the key nowadays isn't as much about is this the most beautiful, or is it the most popular, but can it illicit a strong emotional response? If that's the case, then I'm doing well, I've always known the styles that I'm drawn to are very polarizing in terms of public opinion. If anything, at least I'm being genuine about my art. I could ape any style I wanted to, but this is what feels right to me, what feels true. You've seen I can do realism, but would I want to do a full book of that? Nope!!! At least not right now in my life, that's not what I'm meant for at this time. Public opinion is what it is, and publicity is all great publicity no matter what. You just have to use it as momentum to propel yourself to the next assignment, and continue creating!!!

Today feels like a Friday already, what's the deal with that?!?!

One of the things that I've admired about your art is you aren't like anyone else out there. Maybe from time to time you have to post something to show the more "normal" art that most fans expect.

Hey Evan, I think you cut "Ken." off in traffic or ate his mom or something. Either that or he has no life.

p.s. you have no observational skills because you draw demonic people with tiny ankles.
