Devils Due Entertainment is running a kickstarter for my latest project Squarriors! We're halfway funded and our super rare perks keep selling out. However, the better that this KS does, we'll keep coming up with more interesting perks. So please, back issue one so we can make it a huge success~! :)

As some of you may know, most of my projects are a labor of love. And the projects that are not, tend to wear me out and drag me down into a deep dark pit of DAHKNISS! And when you're beaten down for about three years you tend to become corrupt and tempted by the illusion of security.  I lost sight of what I was passionate about and couldn't figure out why I was so damn miserable or how to fix it.

I had the opportunity to take a six figure job. It was life changing money but it would have eaten up all my time and I was looking at having to drop multiple projects... I was tempted because I'd had such terrible experiences with the professional world up until that point. I felt that I NEEDED the money, and I probably did... But when some great force of the Karmic Cosmos smacked the golden shackles out of my hand... I was forced to re-evaluate myself. I think it's very important for all you budding artists to get a sense of self worth. Don't get desperate (like I was), in fact don't even think, just do. When I turned down a job like that just so I could follow my dreams, that really spoke to me about how I value myself, artistically. What kind of asshole turns down a job like that!? ...well, me I guess, haha. I've just got more important shit to do than to have my talents exploited so I can barely afford to pay the IRS to leave me alone. I'm no cog in the machine, never will be. ;)

I just heard about the Squarriors from Maximum potential. That looks so ridiculously awesome! I can't wait.

Awesome art too!

I would love to draw some Game of Thrones art. I *might* be able to once I'm not too busy. :)

Thank you really much for your quick reply. Take your time though I'm looking forward. I really appreciate your style and thought of a combination of your atmospheric art and my favorite series is really exciting. But don't push yourself I guess I'm not the only one with a special wish. ;)
You're doing a great work!
