Bad art is excusable. Boring art is a crime.
Choose effort over excuses.
Action over apathy.
Only then will you have a chance at true greatness.
The result is far more valuable than the idea.
*Not sure this is entirely original. More than likely it’s just a patchwork of borrowed, influenced & reworked bits & pieces that I feel I must have read or encountered consciously or subconsciously over the years. But it is something that I was pondering quite heavily this morning. Concepts & ideals I need to remember & more importantly, implement each & every time I set out to create something. Anything really.
I should probably print this out nice & big (in Comic Sans so as not to seem overly pretentious) & stick it over my workstation. Better yet, tattooed on the inside of my eyelids (still in comic sans of course).
Had some down time today, so I was practicing doing some vis-dev type painting to help build my portfolio in the hope of one day working in features.
Expect more of this type of thing to start showing up here.
uhhh… I dunno. A weird monster-ish doode that I did as a warmup & for the new weekly challenge over at Sketchbook Sessions which you all should check out, join & contribute to.
Wife was watchin stupid tv show, so I make her this stupid cat video. Guess you can enjoy it too. If into that sorta thing you are?
*No time for any post-worthy warm ups the past few days, but lately at night, once I get into bed, I can’t seem to “stop” the creative bug from scratchin at my brain. So instead of sleeping like a smart person, I have been playing around with various non-sensical little animated things like this.
Was bored waiting for stupid FTP uploads & doodled this sweet little mutant turtle guy-Raphael.
[EDIT] Woah…. weird. First thing that popped up in my tumblr feed as I am posting this is some other dudes AWESOME designs for a TMNT contest they are having at Threadless??? Crazy town!
Should I enter this in the contest? Is this the sort of thing people would be interested in wearing on a t-shirt? I seriously have no idea. I am not cool, young or hip enough to know these sort of things on my own.
