Have you ever had a bad experience and wondered what it was that God wanted you to learn from that experience? I would like to be an artist full time but I can’t really afford to do that at this point in my life. So, like many other artists, I have a day job. Its an okay job but nothing to write home about. I have good days and bad days. Ultimately, I think I have this hum-drum job so when I finally can support myself full-time as an artist, I really appreciate what I have worked for and don’t take it for granted. I think that is why God has me here. When I finally leave this place, I’ll be much more appreciative of whatever else comes my way.
I’ve been working on an angel series lately. I normally do superhero characters but I feel I need to do art that is distinctly my own as well as fan art. The last four years of my life have been difficult, especially since losing a good paying job, and I wanted to create a series that had a religious theme. Why? Because without God in my life I wouldn’t have made it (or it would have been a lot more difficult). I truly need to thank God for the loving support of people around me that helped with the transition after I was laid off. With that said, I’ve already inked seven angels for my new website. Now comes the difficult part – how to color them. I don’t know if I want to make it cartoonish like my superhero characters or go a completely different direction. As an artist, it is really difficult to decide on a color theme and style. I’ll have to really think on this because the wrong decision can ruin the art.
