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.

Hey! TallToonist
Where are you located and what is your favourite musky fishing lure? I'm over in Southern Ontario Canada.

Hey bro... I live in St. Louis, MO.  I started fishing for muskies when I was 7 yrs old in Northern Wisconsin (we had a summer cabin in a huge forest).  They stock muskies in a few lakes in MO & IL and that's where I fish for them now... You must have tons of muskie lakes in Canada. 
I had some luck on jerk baits and bucktails... How about you??

TallToonist;
Yes, In Ontario Canada I have a wide selections of Muskie lakes and rivers to fish.

I like to fish bucktail spinners, Crank baits and Surface Lures. I send my "Muskietoons' cartoon to Muskies Inc. for their newsletter
. I also send realistic paintings to Musky Hunter Magazine for their cover art.

That's so cool that you have your muskie art in musky hunter & the newsletter...  Have you ever caught a tiger muskie (hybrid)?
