Life is entirely too short…too short to tolerate crap…too short to tolerate distractions…too short to tolerate doing something that has absolutely nothing to do with your current reality. I realized today is that day and it is time to step up.
Over the last few hours, I have been considering and counting the cost on what it would take to go Full-Time, writing, blogging, cartooning and the whole bit.
Let’s face it, I love content creation, not cubicle culture. I love developing creative work and training others in the process. I love talking about cartoons and how it relates to real life and Faith. I love writing and I love teaching, reaching and preaching. I love doing video work and photography. And, I do so love publishing and promoting books (especially my books of course).
This is not a get rich quick type of thought or plan. This is serious business and I know with all of this talk comes a great load of responsibility.
In the mean time, send your thoughts and prayers and hopes and positivity this way as I research and potentially embark into what will be one of the most important decisions of my life.
Things at work have been really slow. Because of this, I chose to use my break time to actually do some sketching in my sketchbook. I decided to re-draw one of my favorite characters, 12-year-old Miles.
While sketching, various thoughts began to race through my head, thoughts regarding the purpose of Cartoon Daily News….it’s REAL and original purpose!
Starting now, expect to see more and more and MORE cartoons, anime and illustrations.
I made this promise to you, and I’ll admit, I stunk at keeping it.
For several days, I had to ask myself this question: “what do I stand for!?” Now, keep in mind, I’m asking this question in the sense of the blog and blogging, not in a retrospective all-encompassing kind of way. Besides, that would take a full blog series to do that.
I love using cartoons, comics and illustrations to share my thoughts and give crazy, awesome commentary! When I watch cartoons, I see more than just a bunch of funny characters in awkward situations. I see a potential to teach a valuable lesson. I see a potential to better understand people mentally, physically and even spiritually.
My hope is that you gain something from it, and, enjoy the journey of storytelling through my art work and through the work of others.
I mean, come on, who cares if I’m 28 years old, sketching and posting my stuff online? The truth is, it’s not in the age, but in the cause. I want to share what’s on my mind and heart in an effort to give you a piece of my mind (but in a good way, ya know).
