I want to work!

I have been reading One Piece, and first off. Damn, what a great comic! I mean the art is breath taking but I think what really gets me is the story. There are so many great characters, looking and background wise. It is full of heart and just great. 
 While reading this, I am up to volume 10 in 2 weeks...money is going out the window but hey hahahaha... ohhh I hate being broke! But, I read this and go...wow I want to try that, or that's cool. I actually am going to try to do more of a Kosuke Fujishima style of hair for now on. Showing more of the hairs and not just a mass of block of hair. I read OH MY GODDES! and ONE PIECE. (I'm into O's haha.) But they do such great work and love the characters and stories. 
 I am kind of rethinking somethings and trying to think of better ways to not only tell my story but make it more in depth. I am hoping for one day to inspire people as much as so many of the artist I have read.  However, that means...GOT TO GET BACK TO WORK! In less then a week I'll be back in Savannah and which means my ass is in GEAR! 
 Now, I have been back to reading manga, which is good for black and white art work and how fast pace they are. However, I know there is a tread for people to just read manga. Manga is great but go out and read some others. Sandman, SuperMan Red Son (Yes Superman- trust me it is amazing!) BlackSad, the Goon! Hellboy! All great works.  OH and Mark Schultz! His work is just...wow! I can't even think of words haha, I'm a fan boy when it comes to him haha! 
 Well hope ya all have a great holiday and New Years. Stay out of trouble and later.

Hey ya,

This being my first blog... again... The stupid thing kind of died on me last time and well had to start over again...yeah I hate computers. A lot sometimes. 
 Well I got back from Japan last week. Man I miss the place. It is such a different world and is not at the same time. I was excepting comics and anime to be more of a common thing. Not like everyone loves it but just more accepted. There is a larger market but people are a little more judge-mental about it. I mean fashion (at less in Tokyo) is more important then here. But it is so much cleaner and safer then any city I have been too. 
 I also had the chance to hang out with three amazing artist. Mark Schultz, Sanford Greene and Dexter Vines. Sanford Greene has done some comic work but is more known for his character designs.  I would highly recommend checking his work out. He also is one smart ass, I mean damn. He left me speechless. I didn't think that was possible!?  Dexter is an inker for Marvel (Yep, spider man Marvel. ) I actually colored one of his pieces when I was bored over the summer. His line weight and just inking is damn. I think I found another inker to admire! I know I'll be telling you guys what books of his I find!  
 Next, the man...the legend... one of my personal heros in comics. Not just cause of his work (which is breath taking. I would die for original! ) but he is one of the nicest guys I have ever meet. I also got the chance to meet his wife, who is an artist and one incredibly smart people. I am hoping to be able to put work that is at less a shadow of his. Google Mark Schultz comics. He doesn't have a site yet... Hoping that will change soon! 
 It was such a great trip. I wish we had more time there now. It did kill my wallet though, but live and learn right? Hahaha. Also, a friend of mine went, who I think might blow up soon. So go check him out now! Is Tyson Hesse, . Well I need to get to sleep. I will have new art up in the next couple of weeks and I WILL HAVE PRIMAL BEAUTY done Asap!  Have a happy holidays
