Here's the list of things to do for 2006, which is the same list I made last year (and the year before last, gotta be consistent, ya know!):

Start a new sketchbook
Start a new blog
Start a new painting
Have more sex
Attend more conventions
Share more art
Make more friends
Have more sex
Ride my bike
Publish a new book
Clean the garage
Have more sex
Eat healthier
Sleep more
Watch less porn
. . . you're catching on!
Drink more water
See the doctor
Control my temper
Take my vitamins
Learn proper grammar
Sculpt more

And last, but not least:
Have more sex.

HAVE MORE SEX IN 2006, EVERYBODY!!. . . .Oh, and don't forget to sketch...(after sex, of course)

I decided long ago that "New Year Resolutions" only set myself up for failure. Therefore, I no longer make them. If there is something that needs resolved in my life, I do not wait for January. On the other hand, setting goals are important and what better incentive than a neew year, to sit down and map things out.
However I couldn't help but notice that on the list you put
"have more sex"
More Sex must be calculated and planned because 'willy-nilly' or 'free-for-all' sex is dangerous and if you jump in without safety gear, the sex parts could catch something and rot off.

LOL!! I was being sarcastic, I don't plan my life that far ahead of time, and I never make lists, in actuality, when an idea hits me I drop everthing and get it done (which is not always the practical thing to do) because I know tomorrow I'll be distracted by a different idea.

I really don't need to make resolutions, I don't spend much time debating wheteher I should do something or not, if I feel passionate enough about something, it WILL get done, whatever the cost.

There's nothing for me to quit because I'm not addicted to anything, whenever I notice in myself a pattern of behavior (good or bad) taking shape I stop abruptly and change course on the fly, not because I have a strong will but because I have a very short attention span.

I have always felt that having a particular fetish and being addicted to any one drug or thing or whatever, is for the masses, of course, things are not that black & white and people have justifications and reasons for everything but I believe an artist should not be bound by addiction, it's too restrictive and boring, ultimately it all depends on the individual mindset but personally, I'd rather be free to explore and express everything, my life and my behavior are not much different than my artwork, the only exception being the commitment I have for my kids.

I didn't say "have more sex with other people", you can always have sex with yourself, where's the harm in that? (besides hairy palms) I've been married to the same woman for 23 years and I have 2 kids, so I'm positive it will never happen, to have sex with strangers doesn't appeal to me in the least, I have to care for the person I'm with, otherwise it doesn't do anything for me, I tried going to a prostitute once when I was younger, that was a disaster.

Sexual frustration is a very important part of my life, it fuels my anger and drive, is the engine that makes everything artistic possible, all that truncated passion and energy gets put to a good use: ART.

Don't feel bad for me, I like it that way :)

This may be one of my favorite sketches of yours yet. Although, it's very hard to pick! Happy 2006, you drawing fiend, you!

Yeah, mock me! it's aight, you say that now, wait until you get married. Just do me a favor, don't fucking call me complaining your wife doesn't want to have sex with you, I'll hang up the phone on your sorry ass, I swear.Take my advice, pal, have all the sex you can NOW, because once you're hitched and the kids are here, it's over. Wise guy!!

Erm...Happy New Year to you too, Jason :D

Happy New Year to you, Kristen!!

I don't know about New Year resolutions, but I do know that a new year gives a new containment field. Past failings are relegated to 'last year', while 'this year' offers promise and hope. (Well, until we bugger everything up again!!)

Inspired by your monigotes, this year I hope to sketch something every day. (The 3 Jan piece, with the additional scribblings, is very cool!)

And since this is my first entry, can I tell you how much I dig your style. When I first saw it in Draw! magazine (the Illustrator tutorial issue) I freaked: it's bawdy, but so beautiful and measured. Muy bonita!

Do you still have sketchbooks for sale? And do you ship Internationally? (I live in Australia.) I'd be interested in purchasing one. (Not an Australia, a sketchbook!)

Well, all the best for '06!

Oh, and you're right about the sex and marriage business...

But there's always the flip side. At least we get some. *And* it comes without regrets, or the need for paper bags! :)
