Great videos from Scott Erickson, former artist-in-residence at Ecclesia in Houston on why the church needs artists. Check it out.

I had a look at your site. Very nice! Professional looking and clean. Great job! Makes me wish I knew how to write music. :)

I've been participating in the #YourTurnChallenge with Seth Godin's organization. The challenge is to post every day for seven days. (I do this regularly on my main blog http://amokarts.com anyway) On Tuesday my blog had 400 hits which is about 10 times what I usually get. I am doing all seven posts on creativity. Today's I think would be really helpful to a lot of people.

https://amokarts.wordpress.com/2015/01/22/how-to-build-your-creativ... I'd be curious to hear your thoughts.

Those are great David!

I've always been a fan of Big Daddy Roth and Von Dutch!

I've been having some fun lately. I hear it's called Lowbrow art but I love it. It's art by guys like Ed Big Daddy Roth, Von Dutch, Von Franco and on and on. 60s and 70s car art. Here are a few pieces I've done recently. What do you think?

I have not been here in over a year. I went to the Artists Arise conference in Oct 2013. When I returned school got intense and I burnt out on cartooning. I took an 8 month hiatus and then got back into it.  A goal for this year is releasing a cartoon worship DVD.  The first version will be a little rough around the edges as far as sound quality but still beautiful art and music. Hopefully the exposure and sales it generates will help me build a fan base and raise the money I need for higher quality DVDs in the future. 

I graduated from my TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) graduate certificate program in Dec.  I got the degree but not state licensure because although I passed the required tests I did not meet a few of the requirements during my student teaching. This was discouraging but during the course of student teaching I realized I did not want to teach in the US. I had been successful as a teacher in Asia and teaching English abroad better suits my skill sets (creative, linguistic). I am planning to move to Thailand this year and be a cartoonist by day and English teacher by night.
