Kind Words

Anybody that's tried their hand at art knows it doesn't take much to get an artist down. Even the great master da Vinci said "Art is never finished, only abandoned.” We walk away because if we continued on, we'd never stop. That's how I feel about my art sometimes. I call it quits more than I call it complete. Don't get me wrong, I love art, but sometimes it's an uphill battle; fought alone at the drawing table with no way of knowing if you're truly making a dent.

I have however been fortunate to receive some very kind words as of late. First off, I received a surprise (but certainly welcome) write up over at Comics Alliance. It's always very interesting to see what pieces resonate with people, and what pieces they're paying attention to. Thanks Brian!

The other day, I also received a nice compliment on this piece by Steve Ogden. Steve and I have been communicating on and off for a few years now, starting with some back and forth on a few forums, some involvement in anthologies that will probably never see the light of day, and some e-mail correspondence. Steve is a renaissance man, dipping in and out of all facets of the arts, from writing, drawing, animating (and even music), all the while making it look easy. Steve makes the kind of art that you picture him drawing furiously away at, tongue sticking out one side of his mouth, smiling all the way. Do yourself a favour and check out his webcomic Moon Town. You will not be disappointed.
