You know, this DA account is nearly 10 years old. Crazy, right?

I look back at some of the artwork I submitted years and years ago and sometimes I think to myself, "What happened to that guy? That guy had talent. That guy was going places."

Indeed I see some of my earlier work and it seems so much... I don't know... easier? More appealing with much less effort. I don't remember putting in nearly as much effort into doing some of the pieces I really like from my past as I do into work I'm not happy with now.

It really does seem I'm working so much harder for much less reward in terms of appealing artwork compared to how things were before... well before I went to art school.

lol.

I don't know. Maybe it's just part of the struggle.

Regardless, there's nothing to do but to go forward. Maybe I can't find the innocent carefree mindset and approach to artwork that I had when I was younger. Maybe I will. But I won't find it by continuing to be stuck in the past. Though it is good to look back now and then.

So if you're looking for me, look to the future. That's where I'll be, and that's where I'm going.

Happy Holidays, y'all!

I'm just a Japanese guy looking for a fight. No wait, that was Ryu Hayabusa.

I'm an artist... yes... that's what I am... just trying to get better and better everyday. I want to get published and working someday soon, because it's cool doing what you love, but it's even better if you get paid for it. :P

I'm Canadian and totally in yo face. Except not.

Go Leafs!
