ANYONE with a "Creator-Owned" project interested in an Anthology? 

11 deviants said YEAH!! I like the idea, but who else is in?!?!
5 deviants said YES!! Just what I'm looking for, a complete Anthology of talent!
2 deviants said NOPE!! My ideas, I'll publish it myself!

Can't catch a break!...

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 9, 2014, 7:37 PM

Believe me, I've tried!!!

Here's the scoop: I work a full-time job, that at times, can be VERY demanding.  Add to that, I LOVE inking; not just enjoy it, but really strive to learn EVERYTHING I can in order to make myself a better artist.  With ALL that, add in a family (5 kids), eating, sleeping, karate, and personal time, there really isn't a whole lotta time for my "LOVE."

I recently wrapped up the "Grenadier" project, which was 22 pages in total drawn by the UBER-talents RONJOSEPH-ARTIST , finished off "Aqueous" for my buddy Saltybird , got caught up on "The Carriers: Issue #2" with BenFerrari and even wrapped a couple of commissions.  The plan following all of this?...a break.  A time to recharge the battery.

If you read my journals, or seen the artwork, you know that keeping with my schedule can be exhausting; especially when you're on a deadline.  I've found, the best way for me to "recharge," is to take a break from the inks.


Now, don't get me wrong, I am NOT complaining.  I LOVE that I am kept busy (mostly from fellow dA members), and I will very rarely say NO to a project that spikes my interest.  But, WHY does it ALL come at once!!???!!?

Just when I think I've got a little break, BenFerrari fires off 4 more pages (oh, and did I mention we're in a little friendly contest to see whom finishes Issue #1, and Issue #2 first?!?), I've got another buddy of mine (mentioned within this here journal) whom needs a hand at getting a little 'somethin' somethin' done up ;) , as well as another dA member here whom recommended me (I know...what was he thinking!?!) for a project, which has me ALL tied up with deadlines and pretty pages.

AGAIN, I AM NOT!!! COMPLAINING!!  I am more than grateful to ALL the dA members whom have contacted me with job requests, and for ALL the dA members I've worked with, will work with, and have worked with.

But, there has GOT to be something in the rotation of the earth, or the phase of the moon, or SOMETHING, in which ALL the creativity of artists in general happens to peek!!  Hormonal changes, or prescription fluctuation...I don't know!

Whatever it is dA peeps, keep it up! ;)
