Aside from being a comic book artist I’m also a devoted Catholic. I believe in guardian angels. There has been a lot that has happened in my life that started back in 2008. It has been a very tumultuous time but through it all I have had my faith. After losing my job and getting hired to do really crappy jobs, I’m back in the education field. It has been difficult but through it all I know that God was with me. I lost family members and close pets. I know that there was an angel on my shoulder the whole time looking out for me. That’s what my new series is about – angels. I uploaded three of them to my fantasy art page. I have more but I’m looking for the right scripture to accompany the image. I’m very excited to be doing this series.
Don’t get me wrong, I love doing fan art: Darth Maul, Wolverine, Batman, but I really need to do my own thing. How many artists are successful copying other people’s ideas? Not many. My passion is to use my art as an inspiration to others. Reality can be a dreary place and it helps to have someone in your corner saying, “Yes! You can do it!” Anyway, I was thinking of doing my own art with angels as my theme. I’ll keep you posted on how that goes but here is a sketch I did of the type of inspiration I want to do with my art. The Great Recession, North Korea’s bullsh*t, lunatics shooting up schools and shopping malls, I like to think there is a guardian angel out there for everyone…we just have to listen.
