God Hates laziness

i read in the bible that God hates laziness. (2Thessalonians3:6-15) it warns about to keep away from people are that lazy or idle. why? The Apostles worked, to provide a good example to people, as to not be a burden on anyone. what has that got to do with anything? as i type this, i've had all morning to fix the breaks on my van. help my wife straighten up the house, and still have plenty of time for drawing, reading, or whatever, until i leave for work. i have procrastinated all morning, now i have no time for the things i want to do or, the things i need to have done.

that's what the picture above represents. a big "what if " a decade or so ago. could we have set the industry on it's ear? ushered in a new era of comics? become the next box office blockbuster of comics to film? have very kid pretending to be our characters, in thier underoos? hhmm...

anyway i read this and wanted share it's wisdom, a stern warning to those with "idle" hands...

"Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in slave labor."


peace out

a dream that was

Query? when does a dream die? answer; when you give up.

i don't know when i started this, or when i got the idea that i could draw as a career. what i do know is nothing mattered when i sat down and set pencil to paper. i tossed friendships aside for it, almost didn't graduate highschool, and i never could get my head out of the clouds. it was all about the art... nothing else mattered, nothing.

then life came in, it hit hard, and i was completly unprepare for it. no matter how many times i locked myself away in my room, i couldn't draw away the harsh reality of life. should've listened to mom. stayed in school, got a degree in art school, went onto a successul career in art. right?no... i found out what girls were for, fell in love, got married, and spent the next decade and a half, bouncing from job to job.
and guess what? evryone i know in art has a career in art of some kind. me? doing things the hard way. but still...the dream lives.
peace out
