This journey of creativity in my life has been amazing, most recently escalating to new levels the past few years. I have found deeper meaning in my art and illustration than ever before. I have always wanted to be an artist, but never fully stepped into the role until 3 summers ago . . . I was in the Rocky Mountains, sitting in the wilderness next to pristine Emerald Lake. I had come to my senses, a realization that I had neglected my passions for far too long. I was 41 year old and still had not accomplished even half of my bucket list. I couldn't wait any longer. I made the commitment to myself that my time of rest was over.
From that moment on, I would be a cartoonist.
Within a year I had two comics books written, drawn, and published on my own, with various contributions to other projects to boot! Now, I have a whole portfolio of works behind me and am attending shows regularly! I'm making the dream happen!
I could not have done this without the support of all of you! I so appreciate my friends and family and especially those fans who don't know me and decide to support my work anyway, whether it be buying my books or helping promote them on social media. Every single ounce of that support means the world to a struggling artist in this world.
But there is still more to do . . .
I would like to take this support to a new level for multiple reasons: first, I have been encouraged by my fans themselves to do this (which is quite touching); second, to be perfectly honest . . . with a family to support, including kids in college, I need to be able to find a way to financially support my artist career if I want to keep it going. I have a full time job, but as many of you are aware the stresses of supporting a family can often prevent one from being able to support more passionate endeavors. The publishing industry isn't what it was when I was young . . . even if you are published by an "official" publisher (as my nonfiction books are) you are on your own in terms of promotion, publicity, and any sort of social media presence.
I want to keep writing books, drawing comic books, and creating new and amazing content that the world can enjoy. I can only do this through your support and participation through Patreon!
Let's do this together!
