Post with 3 notes
I posted an image on my webpage and it’s not showing up in Firefox. Guess I’ll have to review the help files.
Everything is going pretty well. School is out of session for Christmas, work is going well. I’m glad they didn’t try to add a bunch of hours to my week. Need a break sometime, right?
I’m wondering what to work on next? A webcomic? Another module? I wish I knew what kind of demand there is for what I’m doing. I don’t need money from it for now; I guess I just make whatever I’m passionate about at the time.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
I was wandering DA today looking for literature. I found a daily deviation that I thought was terrible. How do these artists get praise? I struggle with wanting to create and being appreciated for it.
The only thing I can do is keep writing and drawing. There must be tens of thousands of us out there just hoping for that one note of encouragement. Tens of thousands whose work will never see a best seller, or even have their comics put on a shelf other than in their bedroom.
I create because I feel this irrational urge to create. It’s like a fire in the pit of my stomach that no amount of video games, food, or even company can fill. Maybe it has something to do with that god-shaped hole in my heart. I struggle with turning to Him to fill it and instead will often seek pleasure of some form elsewhere.
At least k-love makes me feel better. I don’t have any best-sellers or anything, but part of me imagines that there will be a library in Heaven where my journals and the rest of the lowly artist/writers will be proudly displayed for angels to examine and ask, “What do you think of the use of color? How does this make you feel?”
“I think it’s great. Maybe we can draw our own comic about how great God is and present it to Him,” they’ll say.
