What inspires you to create?

Normally when I write a blog, I sit and think of an idea that I find interesting, write some notes and start typing.  This one, however just came to me today.  I was working on the pencils for Shield of Justice and I started to wonder about why I’m doing it in the first place.  I don’t get paid for making the web comic, and it takes quite a bit of time to finish.  I do some “product placement” where I live (I leave cards and ask to put a flyer for the web comic in comic book and book stores). I use social media, but it’s been a struggle to gain more followers (not that I’m complaining about the ones that follow now, thanks!).  I asked myself the simple question: Why do I do it?

There are a lot of reasons why after I thought about it awhile, so I’ll just discuss my main reason: It’s fun.  My time that I cut out of the day in order to work on my ideas mean a lot to me.  Many other things happen during the day which I place a higher priority on, so I feel it means that much more when I can just sit down and CREATE.  I enjoy how my ideas move from that to writing, drawing, inking, coloring and lettering because it came from me.  I don’t know if anyone else feels even a little of this when they create what they love, but that is what inspires me to do more and more.  I remember Stan Lee has said in a meet and greet I went to a few years ago that even if what you create doesn’t make sense to someone, do it anyway and see where it goes.  I take those words to heart whenever I start to think about stopping.

Let me know what inspires you.

Be blessed.

Vampyr quenches my thirst

Just picked up Vampyr for the Xbox one, and it looks great in the first five minutes.  It’s already creeping me out so I’ll be looking into that soon, but I’m still amazed by Detroit Become Human so it will be awhile.

Be blessed.

SOJ volume 3 page 14 is in the books

Time to start on page 15 this week, so now its time to relax for the next two days.  Thanks to everyone who is coming aboard my blog or other SO ME with pisces concepts.  There’s been bumps in the creative road, and I’m still learning as I go, but it’s been an exciting time for me and I hope that I can give you some excitement as well with the Shield of Justice.

Also, I hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.

Be blessed.

Detrot Become Human..wow

Now I have this game and God of War to play.  They are both fantastic.  I only started 5 minutes worth of play on this and it’s incredible.  I like to compare video game play like eating a great meal, I want to savor it and not eat it quickly.  I’m really taking my time with these two and in two weeks, Vampyre comes out so it’s about to be a slow burn…oh and I’m still working on my inks for Shield of Justice.  All about balance.

Be blessed. superheroine
