Peanut Butter

Ode to Peanut Butter
You are so sweet
When you're on my bread
I like to eat

Ode to Peanut Butter
You're better than logs
It's fun to share you
With my dogs

Ode to Peanut Butter
You're such a distraction
I better get back to work
da - da - da - Action!

I'm Not Tired

I made this crazy picture after my little sister wrote on my Facebook wall at 5:30 am Sunday morning.

I'm trying to produce more these days, because practice makes perfect you know. I'm learning that my biggest block is fear. I don't think my work will be 'good enough' so I don't do any.

Impatience plays a large part in that. I want to my illustrations to be perfect within three or four pencil strokes. I figure, if you're REALLY good, that's all you need. Maybe it's a sub-conscious symptom of laziness.

When I was young, people told me I had 'great potential'. But that's all I they ever said, and that's all I've ever had - potential. I don't know how to realize that 'potential'. It's like practising for the Olympics, but once you're there, you don't even compete. I know I can win a gold in a thing or two, but if I never try, I'll never FAIL. The 'dream' is never broken.

Anyone want to offer some advice?
