Inspiration

I don't have a new drawing yet (working on my "i love myself so much" comics) but I bring thee just a quote from a very inspiring sir, John Lasseter, talking about creativity principles at Pixar. I highlight a small personal favorite passage of it, but recommend its whole reading: (thanks to Upcoming Pixar for the link):

3. Quality is a great business plan. Period. "There is a crucial rule: no compromises. No compromises on quality - regardless of production constraints, cost constraints, or a deadline. If you get a better idea, and this means that you have to start again from scratch, then that's what you have to do.

"In any creative industry, quality is the sole business plan that prevails in the long run. Many managers fail to understand that, but the spectators understand it. The process is only finished once the creative professional in charge says it's finished. That does not mean that there isn't to be any pressure - there's pressure all the time anyway - but the individual creator always needs to have the last word."

Ahhhhhhhh might be back


Hello world.

Thanks to my friends Patty and Dani, I now have a tablet pen that works again!!!! Thanks girls, you rock!!! (Be sure to thank your friend overseas for me too, she was very kind!)

I know I didn't do the artwork that the pen deserves (maybe it should be in better hands) but, just to celebrate the day.

This year has been amazingly shockingly weirdly sickeningly odd, actually I don't have the words to describe it, it's sucking a lot yet I am so thankful because I've met so many great people who are amazing artists as well, besides all the great people I've been already working with, so I added some links to the wonderful works these marvellous people do. Serious, I couldn't be more greateful.

I am also learning so much about life and love and etc. (artistic etceteras) that I haven't applied to practice yet because I am so slow, but hey.
(hey what? I don't know, I lost the point)


Now I shall return to my cold dark cave of South America's most ignored.
(sometimes I wish I was just a little maggot eaten by fish 2 days after being born, but this is so emo.)
