Thanks for the kind words, bud. I've been quiet for a while as I've been switching gears with my work... concentrating more on my own
art, not pop culture based stuff. (See the post above.)
Not a very complicated story, really. I may have mentioned it before. In terms of the pop culture scene, I feel like I've been wading through the slush pile for years. Worked on a few cool things, which was fun, but felt like I was just spinning my wheels. Not really getting anywhere. I can't compete with bigger names/companies, I just don't have the audience to make it worth while.
StarKade will continue, because I just love making those little character prints. But my phone rarely rang for any kind of official poster. And when it did, I'm just not well known enough to sell a volume to make it worth while, monetarily. I don't have the reach. I'm not bitter or anything, it's just how the game goes. And I got tired of playing.
Tough pill to swallow, but I'm trying to be more real about this stuff, y'know?
