I hate having to worry about work, but now I think I've finally figured out my mentality. Getting that right mindset to focus and really push to achieve the goal is tough at first, but the payoff is too great to quit. Throughout my career as an artist, I've been approached to do so many things. Every time I get a break through with my art I get this opportunity to make money on some other job. A whole different industry, I end up burning out and quitting. Then I go back to my drawings and it all happens again. This time I really feel like I've cracked it, it's finally paying off and I'm really relieved. I still have a long way to go but with this world I've faced enough troubles. I'm ready to make it better now. New art coming soon Peace and Luv

Hello


First off I think I owe you guys some artwork so here we go.



I got back to this blog and I read a draft that I didn't post, but it was the last thing I wrote here. It's not something I wanna post ever again because it just felt like it wasn't me. I'm not sure exactly what I want to talk about right now but I just figured if I start writing words here I'd eventually get something going. It's been over 2 years since my last post here and I've been through a lot. But I've also accomplished a lot of things so I guess I wanna post what I've done.

I created a book called Maddthology but it's basically a compilation of all the stories I've created so far. I've tired to put it all over the place and it was really fun to finally put a book together and have one on under my belt. I also set up my first comic convention. We called it Mississauga Comic Expo or MCX. We were able to get 20 artists and with free admission. It was a great time with a lot of people picking up artwork. We had a ton of cosplayers getting pictures taken with people, it was a ton of fun. 
Now life is kind of wide open, I've done all sorts of stuff but I feel like i'm ready to do a big project that I wanan go all out on. I thought it was a project i'm on now but i just feel like it's missing stuff. 
I guess that's it for now, I'll figure out what else this week i wanna blurt out on this blog. 

PEACE AND LUV!

What's up!? My focus Recently

To the few people still reading these blogs, I've actually moved a lot of my activity in my www.maddsketch.com site and so i would recommend you check that out if you would like to see my current stuff and situations. I still vlog stuff on YouTube but its more entertaining cause its about my events and other conventions i go to. I am hoping most of you guys would follow me there if you really like my work ^_^ it's hard to keep up with all the sites I'm working on. Here's some of the stuff i've got going on lately.

Busy Little Bee I Am

  I know it has been way too long since i've posted a blog and i'm imagining i could probably do some good by bringing myself back to this and use this as therapy.  I have been working on a project for many weeks now and it has been great and also very mentally exhausting. It is the biggest project I have ever gotten myself into but i know it will be well worth it. Everything is still in working progress but we've started the facebook group also to get the hype going. If you would like to see it, you can check it out here Excessive Force FBpage .

Now enough of that time to talk about what else has been going on. I am doing alot of drawing still and am on to working on my comic for next year. If all works out I will have my book in several stores, but we're hoping that things go well. So far we have a lot of support through Spent Pencils crew and with my relations with them I have been able to do more good and accomplish more things. I've also learned alot on doing fan art and prints for events. We've been able to do so many events, many of which i vlogged about but haven't finished editing them because of my project that i do on the weekdays.

Here's what i did on Thanos
The one thing I realized about fan art is that I could make money doing other people's characters but also be artistically satisfied. I get to be creative and show off my skills without compromising my style and integrity. I was able to be appreciated for the work i do and have my style be recognized. It has been pretty liberating and rewarding. I have done alot more because i need to build my collection of prints and also open up my commission list for bigger pieces.

Next time i will have my pages to show off for the UX comic. Which for now i am thinking i would be doing a 32 page comic instead of a 200 page graphic novel because of my devotion to the major project i am doing. So far it looks like i could have a window of doing more pages and such but i just need to keep working away on all the projects because i have taken more jobs from different sources just so i can stay afloat. Next post i will show off more of my prints and some shots of my project. Peace and Love everyone! (i miss saying that ^_^)
