For those who know me well, know a few years ago I was close to giving up on art. I was also quite angry and cynical. Life served me up something painful enough to get me there. Over the years, art was my meditation. It was that place I could go where it was just me and the paper. No past, no future, no pain....just being. Though that journey is how I learned it was the gift for me. That it was okay to live and dream again..
I'm content to just "dook" out something. Not for the quality of it, but for how blessed I am for the time I get to do them. I never would have thought so many people would be so kind to me for that. I wish that could go back in time to the "me" who made the decision to "keep on keepin on" and tell him thanks, it was well worth it.
I feel like this book is one way of doin that. For all of you that have come by and supported me through years, I wish I could hand you the feelings that your kindness has given me. My soul is overflowing with gratitude and I love you for showing me the best part of this world... I can't thank you enough for making this book a reality through this kickstarter campaign and being apart of this creative journey of mine. Beyond humbled..
Down to the last four hours..
Gonna go get ready to film the demo video then spend the rest of my weekend pouring this happiness into my beautiful family ( who put up with my high anxiety through this whole thing :)
Keep on keepin on!
