know, I've always had bad luck. It's why I try to avoid gambling
(which is funny, considering I teach people how to play Texas
Hold 'Em in Daisy Kutter). Not only do I have bad luck
at the tables, but I also tend to have bad luck with things like
my birthday... One year, I even spent my birthday cleaning my
roommate's used, dried-up condoms from the attic of a house I
was moving out from. (Don't ask) In the process of doing that,
I dropped my glasses somewhere in the attic as the sun went down.
I stumbled about in the complete dark looking for them, to no
avail, and I decided to wait it out until the next day. I spent
one last night in that place, on the floor, with no electricity,
bundled up with my knees inside my sweater. I actually laughed
myself to sleep when I realized it was my birthday.
there IS one aspect of my life in which I have always had incredible
good luck: My illustrations. For some uncanny reason, I always
end up falling into everything when it comes to drawings, and
I almost take it for granted sometimes. Of course, it's probably
because I work way too hard at it. Wait, I hope I didn't just
unlike me, my friends (who are also featured in FLIGHT) Catia
Chien and Rad Sechrist
haven't had much luck with finding work after school. They both
recently graduated from school and are looking for work. They
are also insanely talented. SO, if anyone out there is in "the
industry", or whatever industry, and looking for talent,
or even looking for commissioned work, please take a look at their
work and consider them. They're good people... and it's hard for
me to believe that people who can draw like THIS,
are not getting paid to do it for a living. It is simply ridiculous.
Kutter in progress...
gonna have to apologize beforehand for Copper being late, since
it will be. I have to finish DK
Chapter Three before I can begin work on it and there's plenty
more to do. Here's a panel I like from one of the pages...
check it out... Daisy Kutter Chapter Two is the comic
book pick of the week at needcoffee.com! They call it "odd".
Awesome! Oh, and I'm right next to the Sledge Hammer TV
show DVD!! Double the awesome!
