It's obvious to me now (more than ever) that if I want more work in this biz I'll have to move to California. The east coast is a dry, desolate wasteland for artists. Nobody actually wants to be a starving artist...I wanna be an overly fed, morbidly obese artist. Is that too much to ask? i don't think so. Hollywood, here I come. . .
-keep it ill-
Oh btw, this chick is part of some preliminary concepts for a project comin' to fruition.
These first two were commissions and the chick with the coffee cup was a warm-up dedicated to a friend who bestowed the joy of starbucks upon me. Starbucks is from Heaven....they should serve it in Church.
Over the weekend I found out one of my good friends is expecting a baby...and another one of my good friends died. It's amazing how you can feel joy and sorrow in the same moment. . .how you can feel two completely different emotions simultaneously. Though these things are opposites they brought me to the same conclusion. Life is precious. . .meaningful. . .valuable. The start of life and the finish of life changes those closest to it forever. These monumental events and all moments in between can not be taken for granted.
I thank God for my life and the lives of my Wife and children. Congratulations Eric, your world is about to be reborn and I know you're ready for the journey. Tone Bing, you were one of the realest, coolest, funniest dudes I ever had the pleasure to call a close friend. My prayers go up for your family. you are missed.
