So, a few years ago some friends of mine were joking with me that everyone that does comics in West Texas was doing it because I got them into it. I joked that it was like I had some sort of disease and was infecting everyone with it. They joked that I must be like a talent monkey with a comic book outbreak. Yeah… we don’t have much to talk about around here. Anyways, I liked the name, and I continue to infect, so I figured it was time to spread the art love to the world wide web. I now have an art and inspiration blog called talentmonkey.net for anyone that’s interested.
I recently posted an article on “getting started as a freelance illustrator” to help those folks taking their first forays into the biz. Its a good primer, coming from my own experiences getting into the industry.
