More hours in a day

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 22, 2014, 7:46 PM

don't you wish you had em?
I sure do
even just a couple more,
extend the day to 30 hours and you could really get things done~

Think of all the awesome things you could do in that time?
You could draw and cook and walk your dog and do anything you could imagine!
just think of the possibilities!

..But bad news, there are only 24 hours in a day, and you have a job and classes and a commute and just enough time to watch game of thrones and pass out in a hamburger for a few hours before the alarm goes off..

And then its back to work, back to school, back to business, back to whatever it is that takes up your day and keeps you from getting anywhere..

Your time is suuuuper limited. Most of us are selling hours of our life to someone else, hours that you can't buy back. No refunds or exchanges, your time has been purchased by Soul Crushers Inc.

And yet most of the day, you do see other artists around online who seem so busy yet are constantly updating and posting all day.
Early Morning Warm Up!
Lunch Time Sketches~
After Work color practice**
Late Night Doodle before bed!

and you are just like wha.. wait.. wh..

How the heck does anyone stay productive in their own creative goals while working for the man???
and SPOILER ALERT:: this journal doesn't end with a profound answer, i'm actually asking! XD

Short Answer is the ol "do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life!"
fa la-lal-lalalala~~~~ rainbows and unicorns, tralala~~~~

Not so easy, its hard out there, and you got bills to pay any which way you can

But we can look for little moments here and there,  look for a break in the storm to take little steps toward your goals. At the end of the week, you'll be a little bit closer~ I spend most of my time at work, but here and there i find little pockets.  Pockets to model a 3D set, or paint some space backgrounds. Pockets to work on 88 whenever i can. It's slow going, but it's IS GOING~ thats the kicker

just keep it going~  doesn't matter how fast, right?   

Every brilliant fucking masterpiece painting was done one dab at a time.  Every epic ancient marble statue was chipped out of big fucking rock slabs one little grain at a time. Each step keeps moving forward. 

I do believe in hard work, and i know you will work twice as hard on something that MEANS something to you, than you will for a paycheck.  You can sell your time, but you can't sell your dreams. That shit belongs to you!

I guess I wrote this to motivate myself,  hopefully motivates you along with me..?
yeah?  yeah!

one foot in front of the other, we'll get there!

I am a visual artist working and living in Toronto. I try my best to make art that either captures a feeling or causes one. Hope you like my work, and yours.

That absolutely horrifying Naruto art request and your response from a while back have been making the rounds on the net. It's not exactly a great claim to fame, but it got me interested. I'm particularly fond of 88. You've got a great gallery here.

Soooooooooo I just so happened to find you by watching a youtube vid featuring one of your artworks. I didn't actually notice your name on it until like 2 weeks later haha. I found you by your space out picture and wow you art very talented!! Like, seriously. I am jealous. All I have is fanfiction crap from like a year or two ago haha! I am in love with your artwork and all your interests are what I like which is amazing. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, BRO!! I am a dummy!

Every time I see awesome Naruto or WWE art that I love, whether it be on Reddit or Tumblr, it's always you that so happens to make them. Now I see a WWExNaruto crossover art, and it's you again! GODDAMN IT, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING ART OUT OF TWO THINGS I LOVE DEARLY!
