I was searching through the interweb yesterday and decided to plug in my name in google and see what poped up. I found so many cool goodies that I forgot even existed!
What you are about to see is some of my work from roughly 5 years ago. The first page is a flickr account I didn't even know I had, but on it is some of the stuff I was drawing in college! I took 3 years of animation training (both 2D and 3D) at Windsor's St.Clair College and this Flickr account has some of the drawing I did during that time. When I look at it, I'm so blown away by how much my art has changed.
Some of the first drawings in this link were the drawing that I sent to Dave Finch and asked him if he could give me a few pointers. That's how all of this got started!
This second webpage is the first comic I ever did back in highschool. I can't believe it still exists online! Take a look and have a good laugh. My wife and I were looking through this the other night and couldn't believe the progress that I've made on my art.
My First Comic
I wanted to post this to show some of you who check out my work that you can come a long way in a short amount of time. It takes dedication, lots of hard work and sacrifice, but you can improve and make your dreams a reality!
Between my first comic and before I met David Finch, there is at least 5 years of work and progress, and between David Finch and where I am at today, there has been 2 and a half years. If you're an artist and getting down about yourself and your work, there is hope! Keep pressing on, look for learning opportunities everywhere and shoot for your goals!
