i heard many people tell me that they want to make comics, they want to write them they want to draw them... but when i ask them why they don't have samples ready,  it is always a barrage of excuses.

so this year, on san diego comic con i met a guy that just in one simple swoop destroyed my patience for excuses.
meet Larime Taylor

you go here, you see this video... and you ask yourselves, do you want it hard enough.

this man is a storyteller at heart. his cmic is an intense  one, really cool and i recommend it it is available for preorder, a voice in the dark. it is out in november.  i don't usually promote  stuf, rarely even my own, but i want to promote this because this man deserves it!

so stop looking for excuses, stop trying to find reasons why it cant be done, start working on ways to get it done.
you have one life... if you want to be a storyteller , be it! be a writer , be an artist, be what you always wanted to be.

dont give up. you will hit those walls, they will be frustrating. but take it from me, i was self taught, and all you truly need is  perseverance and discipline, and if you dont take it from me, take it from Larime!

I learned through many years that nothing will be done if you don't do anything.

I have starting a comic as a hobbie, to see if I would like it, and indeed, I enjoyed. I enjoyed so much that it is my main focus since two years. I am looking to improve and restart my comic made two years ago to make it as perfect as possible. I am looking for critiques everytime I can get some, and take notes of every comments.

I am ready to do it. I want to do it!

I know this is old, but Larime *really* needs a signal boost!

A good friend of mine sent me a link to your journal, although they have been inspirational, I still can't get out of the slump I've been experiencing. It's not so much of an art block per say, it just that I've been frustrated with my drawings. I've never felt the satisfation of a completed artwork, whenever I see my drawings, I feel disappointed...The proportions are off, the eyes are crooked and overall just plain obscure and weird. No matter how many times I try I never seem to get them right. I never used guidelines to draw ever before in my life and the thought of learning a new ways to draw from scratch or coming up with a new style makes me fearful and wants me stop dead in my tracks. Art used to be my healing remedy for my low self-esteem and low self-confidence, but now recently it has been working against me rather than for me.....Right now, due the fact my passion for my favourite pastime is completely lost, and currently thinking of leaving dA........I don't know what to do anymore....But, if I stay I feel like I'm going to hurt myself...You can go to my profile and go to my gallery to check it out if you like....Don't expect anything amazing.

Kada umetnik poput vas ovo kaze onda to dode kao hladan tus i otreznjene za mnoge mlade glave i umetnike koji tek treba da se razviju ali zbog ovog ili onog to odlazu. Kratno direktno i posve inspirativno.

That... Was exactly what I needed. I have been beating myself up over making a comic lately. One I've had in the works for years now, completely plotted out... But not on paper. I have to just get over my excuses and get to work. Maybe my skill isn't where I want it to be but it's what I have so why not use it. Thank you for sharing this. It's exactly the push I needed

Inspiring! I admit to making excuses, except mines for manga. I made the story board of one but I never got around to finishing it. Le excuses.

1) Not that good of a artist yet
3) I'm anatomy clueless
4) I'm being attacked by a killer banana, disguised as a Apple disguised as Tobi disguised as Madara disguised as Obito........ srry if you don't get it O.o
