just wanted to say that im loving your work, and keep at it yo!
i hope to get to your level of painting once i get more practice from schoooool.
thats very nice of you. thanks for the kind words! the more you practice, each drawing you make will be a tiny bit better than the last. and that little bit will keep adding up big time. keep up the good work! -allan
thanks, I wish I could get a picture of my cat on here but he wont sit still enough for me to actually photograph him :/
They are great cats though, very smart! Its funny when people see him for the first time, their eyes get HUGE and the normal response is "whoa is that a cat?!"
“The advice I like to give to young artists, or really anybody, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. Now that my children are grown, I work essentially 365 days of the year. Any day that you just do a little something, all those little pieces of something add up and it continues the momentum.”—
