I woke up this morning and I don't know what came over me. I'm just over flowing with this sense of determination and optimism. I'm going to make this work. I will be a professional comic book inker. I've only been doing this for barely two years. I have time. I think I have made a lot of improvements over the course of my inking career and there is always room for improvement. At this point I am worrying about making money more than getting work and making a name for myself, which is a bad idea I feel. I'm going to look for other places to make money so that I can get back to inking for the passion. I have a couple leads. No worries though.
Watching this show last night, can't remember what channel or what it was called. It started out with Stan Lee listing all the character he could remember helping to create. Then it went to Francis Manipul and these other guys from RAID, a Toronto based illustration and design studio. Some really talented dudes there. I want that. I want to be around other artists like me that have the same ambitions and goals. To grow and feed off of each others creativity. I have lots of connections but they are all hundreds of miles away. I know a bunch of artists in the Atlanta area but they are all in their own groups and I'm not one to invite myself to other peoples parties. One day I guess.
Until then, let's just focus on the here and now. Gonna get with some dudes and/or dudettes about making some art for prints. If you are interested in teaming up, let's do it! I'm looking to lock down a solid team akin to Lee/Williams/Sinclair, Capullo/Glapion(and Miki)/Plascencia. You see where I'm going. I have a few people in mind and one who shares my intentions. It's gonna happen.
