-->> ..sometimes i gotta just flip the world a bird and throw Magic Pudding at them & ..

tell myself.. :: it's not about digital, or photoshop of vector or whatever..

it's about f6cking tools.. and using what you have to the best of you ability to get sh8t done.

These are some of your strongest pieces.

-->> B T W , after work may add these to the f7ckin um .. my FlickR account.

Some girl got on me ( tho' i don't think she was being insulting ..or trying to be ) why i put so much artwork on that account.

Of all my accounts including t2z .. FlickR over the past 3 years or so has shown the highest ratio for exposure for me in any venue, over the past year .. especially since 4kids was doing all this promo crap for Mikey's.. i was suddenly getting messages to share more art. Part of it's compulsive, i admit it .. and i cannot post everything i find on every blog and every art site.. but i do try to post my favourites from some of my favourite artists.

It's this sh7t that keeps me going in such increasingly dark times..

..i hate my mind, i hate myself, and i'm so discouraged by those that hate my work.

I feed off this stuff cuz it helps me to maintain in whatever capacity ..

and anytime i can showcase my favourites on one of my sh8ty venues i will ..

what i'm saying is, may have said it before ::

you're one of my favourite artists.

Thanks Tokka, that means a lot! I'd love it if you put it up there, I've been meaning to sign up to flickr myself, but time and other things just get in the way.

I've got a few more in the pipeline, and I totally agree with you. I don't care how you do it, so long as you're happy doing it and you get the result you want. And so long as no one gets hurt too I guess!

Anyone who tells you otherwise has problems to deal with themselves. Don't let people interfere with the way you do things if you get the desired result (at least in art).

Damn good stuff, Trist! I'm loving all these monsters of yours! Now this guy I'd REALLY be afraid of messing with!

And Tokka, heh, just a few days ago I bookmarked your Flicka page. And I think you should keep at your art and all. There are always gonna be naysayers, just do what you gotta do.

Wish I could claim them as my own, but alas! They're all from the various Ghostbusters books, games, movies and cartoons out there, just in my own style!
