Whew! Actually we’ve been back a week now but I’ve been swamped! Swamped, my friends, swamped.
Soooo, I tried my best to limit the amount of sketches I did this year at the Baltimore Con so that I can actually get up and walk around and stuff. Meet and greet editors, that kinda thing. I even bumped up the prices of sketches (albeit too slightly for my own good). And wouldn’t you know it, I didn’t have time to get up because my sketch list was still too long. I need to get faster with them things!
My sincererest apologies to my homeboy who sat waiting for me for an hour while I did lunch with industry peeps. Deepest apologies for all of the stares and questions you recieved as you sat a-waitin’, brother! They were just guarding my stuff and meant no ill will. However, I WILL hook you up! Promise!
Anyways, I did some portfolio reviews and some sketches and talked my own ear off. It was good times, good times. On an aside, one of the great artists whose portfolio I reviewed mentioned something that’s been nipping at me for a while now. “Why don’t I have an online art course?”
Well, I kind of did that through my forum thing that’s since been abandoned but what dude said did give me ideas. He also mentioned that I was able to teach him a bunch of concepts in ways that were more easily absorbed and understandable than a lot of the available online courses.
Then it occurred to me that what he was saying was TRUE. My LOWER intelligence made it easier for someone of HIGHER intellect to comprehend the concepts I spewed! EUREKA!
“So, dur…. You take dis pencil… and den, dur-ur… You draw dis line…. ”
So now I will scurry away to work on a line of online art courses! “The Idiot’s Guide to Art for Smart Peoples!” The idiot being me, of course… Stay Tuned!
