The breakthrough presentation of an Illustrator in search of finding the proverbial pot to piss in. This program was made possible (in part) by coffee.

Interests

I love Podcast...

Really, it's quite the necessity for me when traveling, working, and everything in between. Lately, I've been listening to old episodes of the Paper Wings Show, hosted by Chris Oatley, Lora Innes, and Justin Copeland. Good folks all around and their podcast is filled with all sorts of tips and information from interviews. Anyway, the reason why I mentioned that is because Oatley talked about artist having a "I can't afford this" mentality, which describes myself, actually. I want things... I need things... I gotta have things, but money eludes me. On that same note, Oatley urged listeners to turn "I can't afford it" into "How can I afford it?" The psychology is worlds apart.

I want a Cintiq (along with other things), but it's very expensive. I'm having tremendous difficulty finding a job and my career as a freelance artist isn't taking off like I hoped. For all intents and purposes, everything seems... bleak. Saying "I can't afford it" guarantees that I won't own a Cintiq....ever. "What can I do to own a Cintiq?" Now, that is definitely a better approach. Suddenly, it doesn't seem so fuckin' impossible. I have to thank Chris Oatley for that nugget of advice.

Commissions...

I'm able to take on four commissions for the remainder of this month and April. If you're interested, you can contact me via email (kenesu84@yahoo.com) or you can message me here.

Patreon...

I'm still working on the details of my account. Since it's for a webcomic, an actual  web site needs to exist. I guess Patreon will remain on the back-burner until I have everything sorted out... or just include web site construction as a milestone goal...

Of course, for those of you who have experience with this sort of thing, I'm all ears.

Thanks again! That has always been my favorite (and the best) version of the Bat, and it really means a lot that my piece could bring enjoyment to someone of your immense talent! :D (Big Grin)

Thanks! I had a blast doing those Pulp scifi covers - they were great fun to do... I had hoped that the template I made to create Pulp covers (in my Resources) would catch-on, and there would be loads of them, all over DA. Sadly, nope!

Thanks again! :-)

Actually, I'm working on one right now. Using that PSD you provided. Huge file, but it was totally worth the wait. Do you have anything like that for the horror side of Pulp?
