It was a goal of mine this past week to get out of my slump which I refered to two posts back. I feel like today I assured myself it was over, at least for the time being. There is always going to be the battle between money and art, drawing good or drawing bad(not purposefully), as the business comes and goes with the year. But, it is nice for me to know that as fact. That I'm not losing any skill as time goes on. I may have to focus on sales for a period of time and draw fast, but when I feel that I'm losing the quality, I can refresh and push myself to do some pieces that I'm happy with.

Its all over. I had my pro badge, and brought my girlfriend Julia, but due to work I could only make it a couple of days. Tons of fun though, I'll be back again next year.
On the first day we saw JOHN K's spotlight, which was awesome. He showed a bunch of hilarious vidoes including an animatic of a Ren and Stimpy episode never made.
Afterwards, I was invited by JOE BLUHM to draw on the windows of a bar downtown called Bondi with COURT JONES. We drank and ate on the house.
