I had removed links to this page for a while out of sheer embarrassment, but now I think it provides a sense of movement and background -- this image and its sentiments were among my first steps upon a new road of being aware of the importance of quality of mind.
How things change: now it's 2001, graphics tablet, Photoshop, PC, and a host of experiences that have flowed by: pain, tears, and joys. I'm now several jobs away, thoughts away, lifetimes away ... well, not quite lifetimes, not yet. I won't say I'm any better an artist, but my perspective has changed in many subtle ways, and I daresay I'm a bit wiser now (though just as much an idiot as ever).
What I wrote of this image years ago: Pixel pushing manga-style again. What can I say? Oh, yeah, well, I hope I am outbound in a generally upward direction. I hope. Though I hadn't thought of that at the time....
I can only pray that my path does take me upward.
