Just F**king Do It!
When I was putting together my most recent art book 'Dead Apes in the Snow', which is pretty much a retrospective and features a lot of my work that's up here on DA - - I wanted to write something for aspiring artists that was honest, to the point, and not anodyne. But the harder I tried the less true it seemed. The reality is that there is no secret way in, you just - well - you just have to fucking do it! This was the text that made it into the book. I know it sounds simple, and nothing is that easy (as the text says, it's a long, harsh and difficult road!) but there really is no easy answer, no fast-track into the trade. It's hard work, a bit of talent and a lot of luck. Everything else anybody will tell you is just advice. This is the only true answer.
Nobody gives you a hand up.
There are no easy answers, and there is no back stage pass.
If you can't see that your art needs work – and it always needs work –

Please take a look at her page and let her know what you think of her work!

I am a Lifelong Artist and Gamer. I am currently a Self Employed Artist/Illustrator surviving within the 9th Circle of Hell known as Springfield, MA. I have been drawing for as long as I could hold a crayon and have been taking my work seriously since I was about 16.

I'm thankful that DA has been around to help keep me inspired when times are tough. I have been able to meet a world of talented people through this site and I look forward to meeting many more in the years to come.
