First it takes someone who not only can draw but who wants to get better so badly that they will obsess about it everyday in their sketchbook and feel the frustration that comes with learning and growing and they will also rise above the inadequate feelings and low confidence and believe in themselves to a point where they are ok with making mistakes and growing from them, they are ok with busting out pages as fast as they can and as best as they can for a deadline. And they are ok with being broke for a while. Being an artist ain’t no joke, you’ll go through a time of being dirt poor. And if you are good/creative enough, and fast enough, and easy to work with enough, then you’ll Probably land a sweet gig. So basically it takes talent plus persistence plus luck. Enjoy.

This is, among other things, supposed to be a progress blog so here’s the tedious process of this one. I have so much work to do this week that I can only doodle on this one for a few minutes at a time.
Can’t wait to color it!
