Recent work

When I graduated, I was terrified about the idea of the "real world." I loved the small community of artists working together on one floor and had the same expectations and fears we all had. I just wanted to continue what I had been growing towards from the past couple of years and finally gotten into a routine. After visiting some conventions, some lectures and visiting working artists and ADs, the "real world" has gotten less scary, less intimidating. For me, it's just a matter of time now, no longer an "if." I feel that's really helped keep me going for this first year out of school, believing that if I just keep doing this, eventually it'll just be what I do. I've been working pretty steadily for the last few months and it's the first time I honestly think things are going to work out. I hope the same kind of moment happens to all of you too, I know we've all been having our victories here and there, so let's keep it going. I believe we can do it.

Just wanted to post some recent stuff that I've done this past month. I have more to show but I'm waiting on them being cleared/approved. These were done for an online card game. Currently working on 4 other pieces along with a few others that I'm waiting for approvals to show, but they'll be posted shortly. Thanks, guys, hope you like them!

Hey, bravo for keeping productive and motivated with your work after graduating! I've been in the "real world" for almost three years now and it was easy for me to fall into the burn-out from school and procrastinate. Keep it up, your paintings look great.

Thanks, guys! I'll be posting more soon, but I wanted to make sure to give these recent pieces some view time.

Fish- It's funny, I always hear about this "glow" quality that I apparently have in my work, I don't really see it but I'm grateful that others like yourself do!

Traut- Thanks, man! I guess I just don't want the family to see me as a failure? Haha.. I want to show them that it really is possible to make a career out of something that you love doing.

Joe- Thanks! Trying to hold my position as Epic Braddock, haha
