I kept telling myself to get MOTIVATED and create. I should really sit down and make something amazing. I should practice more. I should write that comic book. As this year started to pass by I soon realized that MOTIVATION is not what I have been lacking. I have been lacking in DISCIPLINE.
The truth of the matter is if you only sit down and sketch/paint/write once a week. you'll only do about 50 articles a year. That realization scared me. I want to be producing and creating all the time. The only way to improve is to create; waiting for the right motivation lower that number even more. To that end I need more discipline and more practice. The way accomplish this for me is by making a sketch diary. Every day I will fill a new page/set of pages even if I have to stay off going to bed to do so. My friend Emma K. has been doing this for years and I love watching her artwork grow and evolve.

I will be adding monthly updates to my work here, and I've already found though out the month of July, that as I sketch more and more I tend to find my motivation to take a piece to completion.
Feel free to ask me to keep working on a piece if you really enjoy something. comments and critiques are always welcome. Enjoy!
