A Fallout Thanks by jdoem You Are Here by jdoem

How to pronounce my username; just pronounce the letters! Jay Dee Oh Ee Em. It stands for John DOE: everyMan. When I joined, I was just a lurker; just another face in the crowd. I wasn't really interested in posting my work. And now? Well. . . ;P

I was accepted to the Joe Kubert School of Cartooning and Graphic Art but couldn't afford tuition. Shortly after, less than three months, my best friend was murdered. I spent a great deal of time in a depression during which I stopped drawing. When I started up again, years later, the joy was gone and it was/is a slow process getting back to where I was.

I've written two books which are both available from createspace; you can see the covers in my gallery.

I'm a firm believer in creating things your way even if people say you suck. Pick your favorite artist in anything: writing, painting, photography--anything--and you will find people who hate that person/group. Now imagine what your world would be like if that person had given up because someone didn't like their work. Awful, huh? Share your style. Share you.

What you may not know: I have a lot of artistic resources collected in the links to the left (Cool Links) and in my favorites under Tuts (tutorials).

"Are you from Hammerfell? 'cause you make my sword curve."
Okay, nothing has been working. I either need to learn voodoo, or use what some people call a "Luigi board" (sic ;P) :rofl:
to get my muse back.
