...are you still hungry...

HUNGER.. you know the thing that musicians talk about a lot where you have to stay hungry. It goes for everything in life right... Remember when you used to draw as a kid. It was that escape into your own world. I was happy with a stack of paper and a pencil. I am sure it made my mother happy at points when she didn't have extra money to buy me toys or whatever else I may have asked for. She give me a stack of paper. I have been really drilling into those memories and trying to put that into my work....and I mean the work I do for myself
. That is the only way I think you will survive mentally as an artist. Knowing that part of you. To quote Shawshank Redmemption "its something inside of you that they cant touch" the thing that know company, studio, or other person can take from you. I think there are many artists that are broken by some studios. They get broken down to where they begin to hate what they do. I only say this because I felt it before, but I had to snap back into the part of my mind that wanted to do this as a child. The part that would draw to escape any pain, worry, or strife... HUNGER.. My friend said to me the other night.."your either going to be a wolf or a sheep..and if you dont stay hungry then get ready to be eaten". Sounds harsh doesnt it. Probably one of the major problems with our country at the moment.. many of us have become sheep and just want to graze. So if you are a wolf in this game of artists, animators, storytellers, and life in general you know the HUNGER I am refering to and if you decided to be a sheep...well....

clarification...Milt Kahl's work!

I posted this drawing but it is not my work. It is a production drawing by Milt Kahl from Sword in the Stone that I purchased from a collector.
