Today I start this blog with the all the hope of a man who has never failed. Let's pray my youthful optimism doesn't fail me.
I'm starting this for two reasons:
Reason 1 being that I want to be an artist, make a living from my art, get published...all the dreams of a boy could imagine up while sitting at home scribbling away on scrap paper with broken pencils.
Reason 2 falls into the responsibility of those who wrote the "2007 Children's Writers & Illustrator's market" book published recently. I, like so many others around the world, bought the book in hopes that it would unfold a golden path of oppurtunity before me.
Reality Check: I am not so naive to think that a book alone could quell my fears, open doors, draw drawings or complete paintings...all on my behalf. I do, however, hope that it will help keep me motivated to do exactly those things.
So...Here I sit, at home, post an 8 hour work day, and 50 minute class hoping that I can keep my mind clear of the hub-bubbery of the known world and envision myself an artist! *queue whimsical music*
Wish me luck!
