I haven't posted in a long time.  There are reasons for this, which I doubt any of you want to hear.  Some of you know what happened. 

I will no longer be an artist.  I will no longer draw, paint, or anything for the foreseeable future.

I have completely lost the drive. I have soul searched and determined that for me emotions and hormones really drove my art forward.  The older I get, the more my hormones are subsiding and from that perspective I cannot become "inspired" to do anything.  The current political climate is so amazingly caustic that I can feel the nation dividing.  I have done some finished work, but it isn't anything that remotely matches anything I have done in the past 10 years.  I sometimes do political cartoons as art therapy.  I seriously doubt this crowd or even this venue wants to see these.  They spare no feelings and they shouldn't.  They were meant mostly for me. I used to want to illustrate beauty and now I want to paint ugly.  I want to create monstrous images of pain and anguish.

I don't do work for conventions anymore and I will not seek a table nor will I do commissions.  I am DONE!!!  COOKED!!!

The good news is, life always changes. For now, this part of my life is done.  It has happened one other time in my life and I came back from the lurch, so it can happen again. I am sure I will come to regret not drawing during this period, but there isn't much to be done if you simply don't want to.

Peace.

Good afternoon, Brandon. Guys have a tendency to give unasked for advice, and I've spent the last five years or so learning how not to do that (and the gals hate it when we do!) However, as one artist who appreciates other artists and their creative vision, I'm going to violate my own guidelines and respectfully suggest you have a lot more to give as an artist. This especially in fact for the reasons you give for walking away from it -- because the world is full of caustic ugliness. We creatives carry the flame.
Be of good cheer,
Ed
