Holy crap! Those are freakin' amazing! GOODNESS DAMN!

What must an aspiring comic writer do to work with an artist of your caliber, good sir? :)

-->> .. ' he who walks- - - ' ..

obvious instant favourite.

Yeh , you're otherworldly.

and again i wish i had that control's prolly why i'm so lauded by others in negative things and why so much of what i do is feared.

WOWIWEEE !! F7ckin' fun hlloween ..

Hahah! Thanks guys! Sorry I've been a little out of the loop! Things have been kind of heavy here at home and I'm only just getting back into the swing of things again!

As far as working with me as an artist, I would not recommend it... only because I CANNOT draw sequentially for the life of me (though I very dearly wish I could)!

I don't understand why people would FEAR your work Tok... It's a little out there sometimes, but everyone has their own unique ways of doing things!

-->> ..i don't know either.

Steve and Vaughn tell me some of it's just in my head, but garnering so many different reactions to the work professionally ( well and in the fan realm ..) it's the more intense reactions that i've gotten that have stood out.

I don't even want to recall my first encounter with the guys of freekin' Dark Horse of all places.

Phil Jimenez told me this past summer he wanted to ' SLAP MY HAND ' any time the erratic line work would go into the actual character or whatever the main subject i'd be illustrating. ( He did say that the Terrorpin piece was my strongest tho'. ) ..

I dunno i still say if it's in industry or the art realm in general .. i'm doing everything right and wrong at the same time.

While so much good is happening .. it's so discouraging to see myself being shunned so continuously anymore.

Yeh yeh .. life stuff doesn't help.. but the more i try to find focus on any one thing in my work, the more all over the place i get with everything.

Man .. i wish there were some answers , even in the slightest.

Guess i'll i can do is keep working to show them all that i can do this, that i am marketable. and that i'm not ' SCARY 'as it were.

Like trying to show people like Dan, the "I am 8-bit" show people, yeh i even am trying to weed my way into letting Cereal Geek allow me to do at least one piece. These are all little goals.. and i know maybe they don't matter up to much, but one does get fed up when the majority seem to say..

" YOU ARE THIS, Tokka.. you are that .. and you won't amount to this, this, and this .. cuz you don't do this that and the other this way. Dadadadadadaadaaa.. You don't belong, give-up. "

You get this sh7t you whole life when you were younger.. and i guess one could hope it goes away.. and it doesn't.

It happens so often anymore where i'm meters away from ' Giving - up ' ..

and i dunno.

i think the biggest thing fear is those negative attitudes people show me.

Least i'm constantly working.. evolving my styles and my work . continuously ..

seems like the older gentleman at Dark Horse is kinda stuck in some mindset that wasn't very continuous on anything but the same old same old.

Well .. hey .. that's his perogative to. More power to him.

Don't worry mate, I know where you're coming from. I have the same trouble as both a writer and an artist, so don't feel it's just happening to you.

I hate to think what Jiminez would say to me! Love the man's art though!

~ tOkKa said...

-->> Thanks, T ..


..and i don't care what anyone sez .. Jiminez is TOUGH !!

One of the most honest and hard critiques i've ever had.

It was a serious honour.
