inthedesertwithgirls asked: I admire your dedication to your story. I'm interested to see where you take your work in the future.

Honestly, that means a lot because nothing makes a person feel crazier than going all in on a big project. So thanks and the same back to you. I’ve really admired how much you’ve been putting into your own work.

inthedesertwithgirls is good people and you all should check out her work.

SEND THE LOVE AROUND

A few weeks ago I was feeling pretty down. I was having trouble with a person and I was feeling very underappreciated as an artist, and while I did have my problems, it pissed me a lot. But instead of feeling sorry for myself (for once) I started thinking about other great, awesome artists I followed who could be feeling even shittier and not believing in themselves.

I admire them; each one of them. Each had their own perks that made themselves and what they create special. And I realized that hell, I love being told what people like in my work. Not just “you’re so good”, but “I love the way you draw this and that”. At that moment, I really wished someone would come over and tell me that. How many other artists around weren’t feeling that way, at that moment?

So the messaging started. I never wrote a model message, they were all personal. And the answers were all personal too. People who responded sounded honestly happy someone took time to tell them what they admired in them, and told them never to give up no matter what. The ones who didn’t, well - I know they liked it, because it was from the bottom of my heart.

So after this time debating if I should write this little thing or not, I made it.  I don’t know if there’s anythig similar around, but if it does, take this as a reinforcement. It’s not a campaign, nor a meme, nor will it grant you favours from your favorite artists. Please, don’t do anything if it’s for interest. Instead, look at the artist as another human being who struggles with daily life and yet make such beautiful things you admire so much. Call them by their name, tell them what you like in them. Or draw, paint, write or compose a lil’ something for them. Doesn’t matter. Show appreciation.

Send the love around to those who inspire you.

(sorry for any mistakes, English is not my mother tongue and it’s a bit rusty)

cjjoughin started following you

hi I read your comic synopsis and

"Creator of City of Cards, the story of a failed former professional wrestler and his amnesiac ghost hunting partner living in a dystopic corporate run future Reno Nevada.”

as a native of reno I can say that reno nv is already dystopic and corporate-run but I look forward to seeing how you have made it degrade

Glad to know I wasn’t too far off when I picked my location!
