Why, hello there.

Doing what I can to live my life and be grateful.

I will never.

I will never be the perfect person.
I will never have the society-based body.
I will never be dishonest.
I will never have the sexy and adorable voice.
I will never have the top grades.
I will never fit into clothing one size too small.
I will never stop caring.
I will never stop smiling.
But I will tell you what I can do.
Be the best partner for you.

Everyday is such a learning experience.
Even if you sit at home doing nothing, you’ll realize something in the solitude of your home. You think of anything and everything throughout the entire day and night. Sometimes it’ll keep you awake as you toss and turn in bed, and regret thinking of such the following day. 
Those thoughts don’t have to be important, most of them are completely useless. You think of your past, you think of every regret, every happiness, every scary thought, every sad times. It’s inevitable. 

…But you learn from it because you have no choice but to solve it.

And sometimes, admittedly, it’s scary.

(Pieces are almost in chronological order from the past ten years)

It all started with a sketch.. and a book

I think my first memory of drawing any  comic book heroes was of  x-men  in a math note book back in 4th/5th grade(lost to time).

it started with a sketch again, that i posted online on forums and it became a sketch daily thing. That gave me the courage to post more and try and learn to get better.  I than started to color them for fun and when people started to request them at cons i grew to learn to love character i didn’t love before.

After/during college i was ready for work and thanks for a random email i wrote to Steve Gordon i got to live my dream. Thanks to him and the great late Boyd Kirkland  i became a ntern/effects artist for Wolverine and the X-men and he taught me so much in the short time i worked in that small studio. I designed every characters effects except a couple like night crawler and some others. I was also self proclaimed office x-men encyclopedia know it all and when any director needed nerd knowledge i knew it. Don’t worry i was bummed like everyone else when season 2 got canceled and that show is something i have  always been proud of and glad to be apart of it. 

So in the end why am i drudging up ten years of old men sketches?

Now that I am compiling a new sketchbook i was forced to go through through all my records from the past ten years  and that piece at the very bottom of the dark phoenix team in blue line is my first sketchbook that i started when i first moved away from home and have never show or posted anywhere. I’m steal learning and it nice to remind myself that i can progress and remember where it all came from.

They arent the only fandom i keep in my heart but they been there one of the longest. In the end my love for x-men is hopefully lifelong and they helped shape the kinda of creator i am today.

These are all going into my daily vocabulary right the fuck now.

Ditto.

The joys of being around so many former military people.

FUBAR is my favorite and is used in my ever day language. The only time I have ever seen any of these others was news agencies trying to sound cool by using snafu, but no one seems to remember that it is an acronym. 

When my dad was in the air force, his nicname was FooBarr (play on words of his last name) because he majorly screwed up landing helicopters when he first started out and it wasn’t until a few years until I got the joke
