Watchers

Shake dreams from your hair
My pretty child, my sweet one.
Choose the day and
choose the sign of your day
The day's divinity
First thing you see.
A vast radiant beach
in a cool jeweled moon
Couples naked race down by it's quiet side
And we laugh like soft, mad children
Smug in the woolly cotton brains of infancy
The music and voices are all around us.
Choose, they croon, the Ancient Ones
The time has come again
Choose now, they croon,
Beneath the moon
Beside an ancient lake
Enter again the sweet forest
Enter the hot dream
Come with us
Everything is broken up and dances.

About me: Basically I would describe myself as a free spirited, artistic, nature loving, opinionated, goofy, hippie at heart type of guy :D Definitely not perfect but not a dumb ass either... I've had a hard life but tried to make the best of it.
Been drawing toons since I was 5 years old, but like many forms of art & expression.
In college I met other cartoon freaks, enthusiasts, writers and teamed up with some... During college I did a lot of freelance stuff for local mags, shops, had comic strips, and had a strip in the college newspaper for a brief time... Right after college I did a 'Blues Brothers' comic strip with a partner. We worked hard on that strip and hoped to go syndicated, but due to a number of unfortunate incidents the whole thing fell apart and I became frustrated, disgusted, pissed off and gave up my dream of being a cartoonist... Gave up cartooning altogether :( which really broke my spirit and left me with a feeling of dread.
About two years ago I started drawing toons again after a 10 year hiatus... It felt really good to be tooning again and I was excited, but admit that I'm kinda rusty, sloppy and lost. I've been doodling like crazy and have tons of sketchbooks jammed with all kinds of doodles... I've gotten a lil' better and even did a few minor freelance projects.. I would REALLY like to find some type of job in cartooning and need all the help & advice I can get... Like meeting creative peeps... :D
I live in St. Louis, MO. Feel free to ask me anything.

Thanks for visiting my page :) I gave up cartooning as well for a couple reasons: 

1) when I graduated high school, I was only 17 so my parents had a say-so in whether or not I could go off to California for college and they said no (It's okay though because I said the same thing); it's too limited and I've never been away from home like that, plus having to live on my own on the other side of the country wasn't an option.

2) God called me to do something else, so now I'm in school to become a registered nurse, go back and continue on in the medical field as an oncologist, and in science for cancer research :) 

but it also hit me, even though I'm not going to school for cartooning, I can still learn things on my own and maybe get popular by setting up my own animations with a youtube account or getting more books published :) just don't give up completely, alright? :D And yes, find a cartooning job, that would be awesome!

Thanks.... When I gave up on cartooning I had a TON of complicated things going on in my life and I was under a great deal of pressure & stress, and had to do a 180.... I think I'm probably too old now to start over :( but I'm gonna keep on going anyway... I was kinda rusty after not having anything to do with cartoons for 10+ years.

It's never too old to do anything; that's how people stop persuing their goals. Never give up! :D
