The Motivation Monkey

























Has grown into a large and powerful wild animal.  It wants an original comic book that doesn't suck, it wants short films, a sketchbook for the con, oil paintings, blog posts, overtime, double overtime, figure drawing sessions, and a damn banana!  I need to put this thing down quietly, so it doesn't suffer... because my mage is woefully undergeared for rated bgs and I'm a season behind on Archer.

Awesome gorilla. I like the crescent moon as well with all the craters. Cool stuff.

Your post holds a lot of truth and I'm glad to know that there are others who struggle to fit in all their projects. As creatives our minds are always coming up with new ideas we should pursue.

Question of the ages-How do we choose which projects to pursue w/o screwing-up the rest our life balance?

Thanks for keeping it awesome w/ every post.

This one resonated with a lot of artists out there, I bet. I know I've had this feeling many times. Love all of it - great gestures and expressions as usual - how the Gorilla is toying with his mind. Been a fan of your work for a while now.

Ahh dude, I totally hear ya. I was just thinking the other day, how do I really pick my battles... sort out the realistic goals with the long term ideas. Along with updating the 500 billion social media/blog/tumblrs out there...

Can that gorilla of yours turn back the clock a few? I think we could all use a few more hours in the day. haha

Regardless- cheers to managing that ape and still making some kick ass artwork.

Yeah , my motivation monkey is a bullying bastard as well. And he's getting angrier as I get older.. enough is never enough!

Awesome work anyways. Would love to see how you do your painting, I'll let the gorilla know people want some demo videos =)

Hmm. I feel that way too !
So hard to focus on all the ideas we have.
