Comic CONundrum

It's been a while people... and again I thank you for sticking around.
So here's a new look for a change. I'm currently working on a big overhaul here. I have a lot of new people to link and too many to thank. I will also introduce multiple blogs of some personal work in the near future. I've also made my book GLAM available in the "STORE" to your right for just $10 plus shipping(hopefully it works).

If you know me, you know that I'm really not the type to use my blog to ramble on about things. I at least try to keep it all art related. However, my recent experiences at the San Diego Con this year has made me think about things on a different level. Enough at least to write a little about it.

To say the least, SDCC was once again an awesome event that evoked quite a few different feelings from me. I walked away form the experience inspired by so many great, talented people, and was able to share my art with others. You really do develop such a heightened appreciation for it all. Truly, I'm grateful for having had the opportunity to meet so many awesome folks this year.
After a month or so of letting it all sink in, and doing back to back cons for the first time ever, I began to question a bit of what it is that I do. A sort of "questioning ones self" as well as ones artistic integrity. A crossroads... art imitates life I suppose.
Over the coarse of time that I have had this blog, my thoughts, feelings and art have all undergone a sort of maturation process. As do people, art evolves, and I've always felt somewhat uncomfortable sharing that process with so many. But here it is... for all to see. A part of the process that i painfully accept... because I realize that something about art begs for it to be shared with others. As artists we paint pictures and write stories. We play music and perform on stage. Shaman of our time... and each of us with our own unique voice. A voice sometimes that we need to find, but one that I romantically believe, more often than not, finds you. Perhaps, an eternal quest...
Of all things uncertain and indescribable, I am sure of one thing... that I am fortunate to have the love and support that I do...
Here's to finding ourselves...
Thanks,
Javi

Nicely put Jav. I know what yer saying. I found the blurry picture of us especially poignant if you read too much into things like a tend to do.

Just do what ya love and everything else will sort itself out.
