I love reading comics. I sweat making comics; only because I want to be as good as the giants I hold in such high regard. Jack Kirby, Bob Oksner, Alex Toth, Trina Robbins, Carol Lay, Shary Flenniken, Terry Moore, Paige Braddock, Donna Barr, John Bryne, Bruce Timm are just a few of the creative talents that make the earth (in my universe) shake.

Eager to post something, I put things up a while ago. They were rough hewn and showed some promise according to subsequent comments. Meanwhile… I worked hard to refine the writing. My struggle with the artwork consumed lots of time and materials. But when it came right down to it, I'd rejected my work as unworthy. What a load of crap!

I forgot something very fundamental about the Deviant Art experience. It took being an avid but mostly silent "watcher" for several months before it finally became truly clear to me. This is a community that celebrates creative progress. So I'm letting myself off the hook.

I love comics. And I still sweat making them. But now I understand my struggle to improve is "sweat equity". I've begun to integrate this idea by updating my avatar and ID images. I feel a fresh, graphic look will help me to make my presence here more about the work and less about me.

I hope that every new post will become a mile marker, and a way to prove to myself that I'm getting one small step closer to walking with giants.

Shortly after I was born, I discovered comics. In time, I came to realize that comics are not the most important thing in the universe. I’m pretty sure they’re third or fourth on the list though.
