Inhaling and Exhaling





Like I mentioned in my last post, (see below) work life has been pretty hectic. Over the last 2 weeks I have stepped back and taken a deep breath and tried to relax. It has been good. I've actually had the time, energy and motivation to do some drawing when I get home. Not to mention getting home in time to have dinner, go for walks and tuck in the kids. I even had a special request from my oldest son for a drawing. He's really into the new animated Spiderman right now so I've been having fun with that the last couple of nights. This drawing is not for the kids but when my wife saw it she thought it was my sub-conscious trying to take over and tell me how I was feeling/thinking. I hope not cause then I might have some serious therapy time ahead of me. Enjoy!

What you want to do





For a while now things have been pretty crazy at work and I haven't had time to do much of anything. In a talk with someone at work the other day I was given advise from an angle that I never considered before. Through this advise I have re-thought my position and what I want to do with the future. I know, you're wondering what this secret pep talk was about. The advise that was given to me was quite simple- Figure out what you want to do and make it happen. See, simple right? I thought so too until I thought about it for about 4 seconds. I realized I didn't know what I wanted to do. Well, for the most I know, I like animation and I want to stay in the biz but what I really mean is where I want to take me career. I couldn't believe I didn't know. Things must have been really busy for me to lose sight of that; and it has been.
I've been giving it some thought over the last week and have come up with a plan. I can't wait to see if it works.....
