I got to do a short animation recently for Fox ADHD! 8 billion trillion dogs crammed into two weeks. Super grateful and mystified to work with these cool people, especially since my things are pretty pg/cute for their audience. You can watch it [here!]
When I was young and starting out someone once told me, “You’re not going to believe me, it sounds too easy to be true, but I swear to God this will work. Do good work and be nice to people. That’s it.”
I didn’t believe them, I still remember the constant feeling of frustration and hopelessness as I couch surfed and worked minimum wage jobs and stayed up all night every night drawing trying to make a portfolio that would get me a job. I remember not understanding why no one would hire me and feeling like the cards were stacked against me, and that i deserved a job but for some strange inexplicable reason was not getting one. Then eventually after years of going through that cycle I finally got a job.
In hind sight 20 some odd years later I have to agree with them and have to pass on the same advice. It is that easy. Well… “easy” might not be exactly the right word, it is a little deceptive, the “do good work part” is easier said than done.
For real though, I often struggle with motivation and self improvement, and this silly website has really helped me over the last few weeks. I already see an improvement in my productivity, eating habits, and general motivation.
I’ve used HabitRPG every day for about a year and it’s seriously so helpful! You can even add your friends and track their progress, too.
Most of my time on #guardiansofthegalaxy was spent designing Gamora. I loved doing this image showing the two sisters back to back. Love incorporating some storytelling in my concept illustrations. #nebula #gamora #marvel #marvelstudios #conceptart #sisters #gotg
