Again, it's been a while. And every time I manage to drop by,you've managed to astound me with new brilliant artworks and updates. Keep those babies coming always and take good cares,Alberto!

Process Junkie said...

You too, my friend!

Nice of you to drop by.

Keath007 said...

Oh yeah I'll be needing to get the Tyson McAdoo one.

Do you have any idea on release dates for the Coming Soon books? Just wondering if it makes more sense to hold out a couple weeks to save some on shipping costs. I already know I'll be picking up the Justin Coffee one too.

BarryO said...

I'm always very proud to say that I helped Alberto get over that initial fear of the computer (People in their 40s know what I mean) around "T shirt and logo designer end of '95/'97". For a short time we worked together at the t-shirt place and an embroidery shop. Now he's teaching me a thing or two about art and about building one's own path.

Process Junkie said...

Paul Burrows: True, I always take issue with people who argue that parents don't make a big difference in their children's lives, they think it's the environment or luck which ultimately determines their fate. I totally disagree, barring the few exceptions, I think, we (parents) have more power to shape their future than we think.

I wish I would have been more of a parent than a provider at times in the past and while I'm sure I will never win 'Father of the Year Award' I can compare the time before I left the rat race to became a full time parent with these recent years and I clearly see the difference of my everyday involvement in their lives and the positive difference they make in my mental state.

I would have thought they'd get tired of seeing my ugly mug from sun up to sundown but it turned out they actually want me around. The best move I've ever made.

Comikxguy: I started drawing women in 2001 at Shane Glines' "The Drawing Board" (a very popular message board) My friend Barry was also a big inspiration, back in the day we worked together, he used to take life drawing at the 'Art Students League" he invited me a couple of times and although I didn't attend the sessions at the time, he kind of planted the seed of curiosity in me. I was bitten by the life drawing bug for sure.

It wasn't until 2000 when my fate began to turn. My boy Charles and I had just gotten fired (on the same day) from the company we used to work for, he was art director and I was the head of IT.

After the way we were treated at that fucking place I vowed to never ever work full time for anybody again, big or small, I had set up Brandstudio inc. a couple of years back as my freelance company name for tax purposes. I continued to freelance doing graphic design and as computer consultant while drawing for myself in my spare time but by 2003, all I wanted to do was to draw women so I quit everything and this is where we are. My wife wasn't too thrilled with the idea of me quitting a well paid practice for doing what I loved doing without an apparent income source but I couldn't see this working out any other way. If I had to get better and learn to draw I had to do it full time.

In an odd sort of way my daughters became my inspiration without them knowing it, they put me on this path I now walk on. My kids were growing up and I used to tell them all time to be strong and follow their dreams and pursue what they love doing, I'd be a big hypocrite if I didn't take my own advice. I Imagined myself as an old man having worked all my life for a paycheck, mostly in jobs that had nothing to do with art or what I truly love doing so the choice was clear.

Barryo: It is no secret I make you fully responsible for turning my life around. I think it's ridiculously ironic that I hated computers to such a degree that I used to draw my own fonts and lettering by hand and eventually I got to embrace technology to the extreme of becoming an IT supervisor and computer systems consultant.

You also referred me to Cindy for my first art job in the garment industry while I was wasting my life away at James' and unloading boxes from trucks for a paycheck at the electronic store.

I'll never forget that, Babar.
James used to tell me that my talent and determination weren't enough and although I hated to hear that from him, mostly because of his sarcastic tone, he was right, my life is far much better for having met you.
