I joined DA way back in 2009. It's been a great journey on this site over the past five and a half years. I must admit that it was not what I expected. When I first joined I was convinced that it was a break through moment and that instant fame and fortune were imminent. I was convinced of my own genius and paranoid of plagiarism.
Well, it didn't quite work out that way. Through hard work and dedication I built up a small fan base and got noticed in the crowd. I'll never be famous or even make money off of my art but I'm now content with being a hobbyist (besides my day job pays well and I love it). Art trades and collaborations are fun and keep my art fresh.
Anyway, there were times when I was cranking out about 3-4 cartoons each week. Now things have slowed down a little. I'm lucky to do a cartoon every fortnight. Work, getting married etc have all taken little bits of my attention but I hope to continue work on all of my different series. Just yesterday I completed the soccer game. Now all that's needed are some follow up pics about Blackie's wager with the girls. Thank you for your patience. I tend to take years to finish projects and start new ones regularly adding to the sporadic and random nature of my submissions.
I'd just like to say a big thanks to all my friends and watchers here. Many of you have maintained an interest in my art since the beginning and I hope to always have something interesting in my gallery.
