HI EVERYONE, THIS POST IS COMING FROM SKOTTIE YOUNG'S BLOG -



I THINK THIS NEEDS TO BE READ:



"When I became a man I put away childish things, including the desire to be very grown up."


C.S. Lewis said this when people asked him why he wrote books for children. This reminds me to keep in mind the origin of what I love most...drawing. Before I knew what Marvel or D.C. was, before I knew what a comic book, or super hero was, I drew pictures. I love drawing. I can't recall what I liked drawing the most, probably because I drew so much there is no way to remember. I drew all the time, with any tool that created a line on paper.

Amongst the contracts, negotiations, signings, failed projects, good and bad reviews, deadlines, tussles with editors and studio execs., 35 airports a year, the same convention halls over and over, and anything else that goes along with the professional artist label...it is easy for me to forget what I wanted to do this for.

I love drawing.

That's the end of it really. I love it. I love the kid that lives here no matter how many books I sell, or how much money I put in the bank. I need to remind myself to put away the childish "desire to be very grown up." and just put pencil to paper. I never used to need anyone to like what I drew. I didn't know to want it. I just wanted to turn a blank piece of paper into something, anything, just as long as it looked fun. An animal, a world that I have never seen, a twist on the world I have. Amongst all the things that have over shadowed that ideal, I have lost the child.

After hearing this quote, I wrote it down and pinned it on the bulletin board in front of my table. That's why these warm up drawings started happening. I always told myself I didn't have time to draw anything for fun, I had to work. But, like those parents who have kids and need to make time for them no matter what...I am reminding myself to do the same.

PLEASE GO TO SKOTTIE YOUNG'S BLOG AND COMMENT THERE

AND REMIND YOURSELF TO DO THE SAME

THANKX

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING

YOU ARE SO FAR THE THIRD ONE WHO HAS RESPONDED TO THIS POSITIVELY

LIKE:
1) ROB CORLEY
2) ROBIN MITCHELL
3) YOU, TIM KANE :)

THESE ARE WHO LEFT A COMMENT AT SKOTTIE'S BLOG:
(MOST LIKELY BECAUSE I LEFT MY POST AT THEIRS)

4) MIKE KUNKEL
"REMEMBER YOUR CHILDHOOD AND PASS IT ON"
5) CRISTOPHER "CRISPY" COPELAND
6) JAMAL IGLE

AND...

7) "BIGG GUNN"

ALL OF YOU ARE TOPS IN MY BOOK


I'VE POSTED THIS TO EVERYONE I LIKE AND/OR RESPECT

SOME I LIKE FOR THE CREATION BUT NOT ENOUGH TO TALK TO OR PRAISE

I JUST CHECKED WHO COMMENTED AND WHO DIDN'T

IT SHOWS WHO MIGHT CARE OR NOT OR WHO JUST DOESN'T WANT TO BE INVOLVED

I GOT TAKEN OFF BY 4 BLOGS, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND COMMENTS SO FAR ONE DUE TO POSTING LONG POSTS AND THE OTHER FROM A HIGH PROFITE
CREATOR TELLING ME WHY I DID NOT PRAISE HIM ON HIS WORK LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DOES

SORRY I DIDN'T READ THE RULEBOOK ON BLOGGING, SHOW IT TO ME AND I'LL GO BACK TO THE ANT'S/SHEEPLE MARCHING LINE, THEN AND ONLY THEN I WILL KEEP QUIET

THEIR SAYING LETS IGNORE IT AND LET IT TAKE US OVER

I CARE AND I LOVE COMIC BOOKS AND OTHER ENTERTAINMENT

I DON'T THINK THESE BLOGS ARE JUST FOR BROWN-NOSING AND PUMPING UP EGOS

THE INTERNET IS GIVEN TO US TO GIVE US THE OPPROTUNITY TO BE HEARD

I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT TODAY TO REMIND THE CURRENT CROP OF CREATORS TO REEVALUATE THEIR THINKING CONSISTANTLY OF WHY THEY ARE THERE WHILE THE REST OF US STRUGGLE EVER HARDER THAN THEM

AND APPRECIATE THE BUYERS/READERS/COLLECTORS/FANS
/RETAILERS/SUPPORTERS

EVERY DOLLAR THEY USE IS MOST LIKELY TAKEN FROM SOMETHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN AN ENTERTAINMENT LIKE COMIC BOOKS

WE DO NOT HAVE TO SUPPORT YOU

IF FACT THAT MIGHT BE A REAL GOOD REASON WHY THE READERSHIP HAS BEEN CUT DOWN TO HALF

PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF THE BULL

EVERYONE APART OF THE INDUSTRY IS RESPONSIBLE "WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY" FOR THE WAY IT CURRENTLY IS

FROM PRODUCER TO DISTRIBUTOR TO RETAILER AND RETAILER'S CUSTOMER SERVICE AS WELL AS THE LOOK OF A STORE

WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER


AGAIN THANK YOU

Well I see what your saying and I think your intentions are Great!

But....I don't think we can say why an illustrator does what they do. You know this is a tough busines for everyone!!! I think everyone who does this loves it in thier own way. I can understand your point to be sure...but I can see why folks wouldn't want this on thieer blogg. You know it takes attention away from thier blog and work.

And we need to respect thier right to thier opinion. Please don't assume how much they love what they do man... that could not end well!

I truly appreciate your love and enthusiasm for the medium and it's artists!!!! But please be careful brother.. when you try to say who loves art more or this or that your askin fer a mess...You know?-T

hey kane!

intentions are more than good, they're 100% on the "dollar", this blog would not take away the readers attention only inspire the reader to learn more about the artist and their work and the way they work, if it wasn't for the love every artist has and...

oh! btw i don't think anybody was judging anyone's love for what they do, the problem is when we lose that childlike love for art we become grown up corporate sellouts!!!!!!

keep the child in you alive

HERE'S A POST FROM ERIK LARSEN'S BLOG ON NEWSARAMA:


MAKING MISTAKES


Making mistakes is part of the human condition. It's what we do. It happens. Sometimes the errors that see print are a case of sabotage - like the guy drawing in a pecker on Bucky on the yellow plate of a Captain America reprint collection - but most often it's simply human error. Sometimes you get so close to it that you can't see what it is anymore. And sometimes folks just let things slide because, "Hey, it's only a comic book."

Those people should be taken out behind the barn and horsewhipped.

We should care. We should make an effort. And I realize that in years past creators had to churn out pages at such a breakneck speed mistakes were inevitable.

Costumes and details would change from page to page and panel to panel, but that creator's mortgage loomed and their baby need diapers so they had to depend on the inker and editor to catch things as they barreled along, but that's not so much the case these days with higher page rates in place. When comics cost a quarter, they didn't need to be very good for a reader to feel as though they got their money's worth. At $3 or more a pop, they'd better be damned near perfect.

And we try.

But at the end of the day, we're all human. And the best we can do is the best we can do.

We'll do our best to get it right the next time.
