Said "Thanks for the advice John, over the years I have tried to get in contact with companies about art job openings, but the only thing it has resulted in so far are just them glimpsing at my portfolio, telling me they like my work, then further blowing smoke by saying if a freelance position opens up they will let me know (When we pretty much both know that by the time a position opens up they will have forgotten me and All I will have succeeded in is getting my hopes up for nothing). Even worse every time they compliment me on my work (which they have been doing for years) I pretty much want to tell them, "Shut Up get to the point!!! Do I get the position or not, being nice just hurts me more by this friggin point"!!! The only time they respond to my applications is to tell me, "So sorry we have passed you over for someone else...good luck in your future endeavors"." to John Mahomet

After years of this blasted cycle of false hopes and dissappointments, this intro from a classic point and click adventure game pretty much sums up how I feel. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iw-88h-LcTk

Said "I am contemplating leaving this site for good. I have been on here since 2012 and I have only been hired and payed once since then. All I get when I post my art are Kudos, mainly people spreading false hope where there is none. Well I am sick of it!!! To my friends here, give me one good reason why I should continue to use this site, I am waiting."

A commission from one Jared Sims, who asked me if I could make a drawing of a character he made in the style of the classic Warner Bros. cartoons. I did just that and like the incident with the t-shirt logo, I was screwed out of my payment!!!

First oil painting of the new year. I call it "Great Red Dragon and the Beast of the Sea and Sky battle for the soul of the Average Man", or "2016 Presidential Politics; According to a Cynic". The Red Dragon in this piece is an eldricth abomination and twisted mesh of seven of the 2016 Republican party and the beast of the sea and sky is a bio mechanical, natural union of the big three of the 2016 Democratic Party. The prise they are fighting over, the soul and vote of the average man, represented by a close friend of mine/pupil of mine from Drew University.

The final ink drawing that I made in October, 2015. I was inspired to make this while I was listening to the old Halloween concept album, Van Helsing's Curse, by Dee Snider. The Halloween and horror theme deserves a darker and more expressionistic style than I usually do, so I present to you my best Mike Mignolia and Guy Davis inspired work.

Another ink drawing inspired by a classic piece of fiction. This scene is from an episode of the old time radio anthology series "Suspense". The episode in question is titled, "The Elementals", in which a man and woman are the victims of a cruel social experiment. They will go for seven days without food, after which a piece of bread will be tossed between them. If they truly love each other then they will share the bread with each other, but if they have given in to the primal elemental, hunger, they will tear each other to pieces for it. How does it turn out? Just give the story a listen, if you dare!!!
