New Look, New Attitude!!!!!

For the last couple of years, I have been navigating the world wide web without control. I see something online that I think I should be apart of (or a something suggested by someone), I jump aboard without plans! I have this thought that whatever site or blog that I create or join, doing so will help me network the ShadowBird/Sagawood idea. Not to mention my commercial art career.
Well, all this has done, is keep me from the things I love to do such as visual story writing, painting and just being plain creative! I was spending too much time mucking about online and not accomplishing much in reality. Thinking that spreading oneself all over the online artworld is a good idea is certainly........ Not a good idea!

So I'm cutting back! Keeping this blog up to date will be my focus for the time being. Once that has become a habit, I'll head on over to some of the other sites that I have signed with and un-sign myself. Not all of them but the ones that really don't relate to what I do or to the people who are interested.

Now here are some sketchbook and work in progress drawings fresh from the scanner!

Ciao Bellas and Bellos!

Oh yeah! I changed the look of my blog! It's more me! Flowery and faded (only in a vintage sort of way).

Hello, I seem to be constantly striving to get a more solid foot in the industry's door as an illustrator, and I've been doing the same thing... spreading myself way to thin on the internet. It can be a helpful tool, but it's very easy to get wrapped up in it, and you usually end up losing a lot of time in the process. BTW, I love your work. :)

Hear, hear! I'm with you on this one. It's funny how caught up we can become and lose track of the whole idea as to why we loved doing this in the first place!
