"The DunningĖKruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled individuals suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly rating their ability much higher than average."

I remember learning to color inside the lines, too.

In the coming weeks, Iím planning to head down to the Southern USA with some art supplies to do on-site sketching and painting. I havenít decided on where I will go. Iím leaning towards Richmond, Virginia Ė the capital of Old Dominion. However, Iím also debating going back to Huntsville, Alabama, back to the state of Texas, or visiting for the first time the state of Tennessee.
Why am I doing this? I feel that doing some traveling and capturing what I see in the form of watercolor sketches, pen drawing, and pencil drawings can really help me grow as an artist. It will help my skills, Iíll learn some more practical application of color, and Iíll get reference to use in my artwork as well as my comics.
The main inspiration for my trip was one taken by my favorite artist Paul Klee (1879-1940) along with August Macke (1887-1914) and Louis Moilliet (1880-1962). In 1914, these three artists went to the North African country of Tunisia. The country was very influential on their artwork and they produced many studies there that helped shape their own styles.
Thereíll be more information as details develop on my planned trip. Plus youíll see my sketches posted here to my blog.
I do the work I do to be in control. The world is constantly changing and seeks to impose its will on me. By listening to my own self and my instincts, I regain my control. My intuition helps me express myself and make sense of a chaotic world.
I draw upon my subconscious and trust my intuition. If instinct tells me Iím doing good, I keep at it. If instinct feels wrong, I stop and try to make order out of chaos. I summon my feelings, my imagination, my experiences, and my heart. I trust my own judgement.
In the sequential art I create, I want to make what I want rather than listen to what others want. My own desires for acceptance and for times long gone are reflected in my work.
Now I have some other things to tell you. I have big plans for 2013. One of the first releases for that year will beÖmy very first E-book. Yes, I will put out an e-book next year through Lulu. What will this e-book be about? It will be about how to make comics. Drawing upon the information from this blog as well as the insights Iíve gained through working on Sunnyville Stories, I will put out an e-book about writing, pencilling, inking, and generating ideas for comics. Watch for more details as they emerge.
Also through Lulu, I will be putting out an art book through them. It will be a coffee table art book in hardcover and will be sold EXCLUSIVELY through Lulu. But wait: thereís more. The Sunnyville Stories coffee table art book will contain a total of twenty pen-and-ink drawings that will not be available ANYWHERE ELSE!
Thereíll be continuous updates here on the blog so be sure to watch for more details.
Good god, his comic...
I've never seen anyone so obsessed with telling the reader how they produce their badly-rendered work.

"avant garde comic series"

Is there a "people Gimp was programmed for" tag?

I thought it had two sets of ears.

"A landscape study for Sunnyville, watercolor on paper"
Seeing this makes me feel better about my own skills with the brush.
Jesus Christ! I'm dying over here from laughter.

Really needs the avant-garde tag.

This guy is up there with Chris-chan in terms of how delusional he is about his meager talents.

From his website:
"This was done for a lady who I was hoping to have a relationship with. For some strange reason, she refused to even contact me after our first and only date. Oh wellÖ"

Dunning-Kruger Effect is a tag that desperately needs to be linked.

Almost legitly angered at seeing what looks like some really cool and expensive materials used to make THAT.
