Wise words from a very talented illustrator.

My personal favorites:

6. Goof off on a regular basis.

7. If you want to work on your art, work on your life. All those personality traits that aren’t working for you will come back to haunt you in your career (i.e. assertiveness, fear of conflict, fear of confrontation.) It’s all connected.

13. Don’t worry about whether or not you are good (good is subjective and most people are not great judges of their own work), just keep making work.

14. Ignore cool. Successful people do not try to be hip, they just do work that excites them.

15. Always come back to work that excites you. Even if you get off track for a while. Do personal work on a regular basis, show it to others. You can reinvent yourself at any time.

No to Negastar.

A recent incident has left me feeling blah for blogging.

Here’s to hoping I’ll get my shiz back on track soon.

What’s a nicer word for EPAL?


Be an Optimist Prime. Not A Negatron.

“Be an Optimist Prime. Not A Negatron.”



I swear, I need to get rid of all the NEGATRONS in my life.

The first step is to delete contacts in my cellphone that I don’t even text much less call.

Second, get rid of Facebook contacts that are just extras in my list.

Third, physically, if not emotionally, stay away from the Negatrons and find more Optimist Primes 🙂

I realized that I have a couple of so-called friends who make me feel like shit even when I’m not doing anything wrong. I don’t get it. Please don’t drag me into your hellhole.
