Hey Fellow Deviants,

I hope that everything is well with all of you. Me, not much to report, really. I've just been working at my job and working on Zenyaku chapter three. I've been trying to push myself with this, doing things that I'd usually avoid and breaking certain bad habits, trying to be more 'professional', so to speak. If you look in my scraps section you'll see photo's of my working pages. Or just go here:, show the page some love or just something. I've just been concentrating on that. Yes, I did mention in the last journal that I'd alternate between Zen #3 and Cronulla Security but I've decided to just get Zen #3 over and done with first (Geeze, I'm always changing my mind). Zenyaku does get on my nerves a bit just because I have other stuff that I want to work on and it's a big story for me to tackle, but I rather finish it off than abandon it. I've gotten this far. And also looking back on the first chapter, man, the art on that one sucks and blows. I feel real embarrassed about that one. It's forced me to get better. On the current chapter it does look like I've received the biggest kick up the arse. I've been looking up reference stock photo's going through my how-to draw books, I've got all this stuff, use it! I'll probably go back to life drawing classes soon enough when I can.

Yeah, I admit, I'm a pessimist, but that's just how I work. I'd rather nit-pick my own art, have other people critique my stuff and improve as much as I can than think I'm the greatest and I don't need to improve, everyone bow down and worship me. I don't want to turn out like this guy: :icontompreston: No wonder he's the most disrespected web-artist. 

And in other things, I was able to go to the Gold Coast a couple of weeks ago for the Gold Coast Supanova and catch up with the other artists, finally got a copy of Alice - Madness Returns art book (I've been chasing that for almost 3 years. The same day I also attended the Junky Comics 1st birthday party. It was a big day, I assure you, especially when you're using public transport. Next weekend I go up to Mackay for a friend's 50th birthday party.

And yeah, that's it :shrug:
See ya...
