cold feet!



i always try to be a man of my words. but sometimes i just got to back down. i was asked to give a lecture and a demo at otis college of arts and design. at that moment, i foolishly accepted. but now, so many things are going threw my head. what do i say, what do i paint, what if i mess up. i was even thinking about going in with an ear piece. i took speech class in city college and i failed miserably. i just can't speak infront of a large crowd. there's a small chance that i would still do it, but as of right now, i don't think it's such a good idea. here's a comp of what i was suppose to paint.

hope everyone had a great thanksgiving day!

This is a great piece, and don't worry man I'm sure the lecture will go fine. Just let people know what your thought process is, the things you try to avoid and the technique you use. You're such a good painter I don't think they'll be disappointed.

I'm sure you'll do fine, when my favorite artists come to AC to speak, I don't even care if they mess up or get nervous, it was just inspiring to have them be in the same room. BTW awesome piece as always.

Its a great image. I know what you mean about speaking infront of crowds. It's said say you should just look at the back wall, and go for it...

Hey man, My name is Oliver studying Illustration, I've seen your website and man that is some great painting. Just wanted stop by and leave a comment about this piece, the style of the character is great, love the way you handle the paint on all of your piece's, but I wanted to ask you if you don't mind how do you get those flat colors in your illustrations. Hope everything went well in your Lecture, form what I've read in your friends comments. Is it okay if I link you on my blog?
Peace,
Oliver.
