3 months ago I quit my full time job. The pay was decent, there were benefits, I enjoyed working with most of the staff, and it was secure. But with all those things, I still loathed going to work. There's an odd type of stress when managing other employees (good, or bad). There's also a greater stress when supervisors micro manage your way of working.
So, I said "fuck it".
I've been freelancing since.
I love it. I'm not stressed. There's no one telling me how to do my job. I can just draw. Even with the inconsistent cash flow, I wouldn't change a thing.
Ive expanded my presence on different forms of social media. Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter. I post a lot of process work and sketches there that I don't post here. So please check those out if you frequent those sites.
Im making some good progress on "the diver" thanks to my buddy Andrew MacLean. I go to his studio once a week and work on diver pages while he works on his own projects. I'm coloring a book that Andrew is drawing for a company called "lionforge". I also have a story in Sean Murphy's "cafe racer", that is now available (I have copies for sale for those who are interested). And lastly, my friend Chris Irvin and I are working on a pitch to submit to some publishers. It's a fun story, and he already has 3 issues written (out of 4). If picked up, I'll be doing the art for all 4 issues.
Here are the links of where I can be found:
Thanks for reading. Now to get back to commissions and pages.
