It's been a while since I posted anything on here. Well, now that I'm trying to find work I have to edit this site down by a lot. And lose a bit of geekdom that remains here.
Currently, I'm at a loss. I don't what to do with my drawings, to be honest... I'm scared to be rejected. My work is too main stream for alternative press and Too out there [in certain capacities] for regular manga companies. I feel as if I have to taper it down.

Inspiration is elusive. You can chase after the little sucker because it's always three steps out of your reach. If your stressed, it's never there, if you too happy, it disappears. Inspiration is like a cat. It does what it wants when it wants and you wish you had inspiration trained like a dog so it would be so freakin' finicky all the time (hence my slight disdain for cats). Inspiration does lead to innovation to a degree. It's those 'Oh crap, I have to hug the toilet because I drank Super Dieter's tea at 5 in afternoon during the school week and now I'm up at 1 in the morning but WAIT! I figured out A new grappling techinque for a new style set I'm working on!' moments that make it worth while.

THERE IT goes again! INSPIRATION!
