21-Draw - My First Art Publication!

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 17, 2014, 8:01 PM


Alright I'm officially allowed to announce that little project that I've been working on!

I will be in the upcoming "how-to" book 21-draw (www.21-draw.com/)!  21 Draw is a book about character design, movement and expression drawn by over 100 amazing artists who have worked for Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, Rockstar Games, Marvel, D.C Comics, Capcom and other giants of the entertainment and gaming industry!

This is the first time my work will be published and will be published along side these legends of the industry!!!  :iconalexiuss: :icontombancroft: :icondanschoening: :iconyuumei: are just a small fraction of the very talented artists that will be in this book.  

I was beyond honored to have been asked to participate in such an inspirational book!  It is going to be an amazing collection of character designs, poses, movements, and expressions that will be sure to help inspire any whom would look through it!  

I'm still digesting it all, however; it's been a wild cool ride!  If you want a copy I suggest you act soon as there will only be a limited run of this book.

I'm stoked and you should be too!

Expect Loss of Transmission

Man, where do I start?  Hello my name is inigo montoya you killed my... nah that won't do.  Baby you and me, we don't amount to a hill of... that's not right either.  

Well how about we simply start out with, hey gang how have you all been doing?  Hope you've been well!

As you may have noticed my art accounts/social accounts have been quite as of late... I'd love to fill up that lost time with some new great pieces but I don't think that will be happening for a while.  The last 30 days has resulted in a peculiar feeling that I rather don't like; the complete loss of inspiration and will to draw.  I have never really encountered, other then the typical bouts of art blocks, anything like this.  I'd like to say I don't know what caused it (as I wouldn't have to admit responsibility) but I do know what caused it.

I finally let the troubles and problems of my day to day life get the best of me.  lol don't get me wrong I have a wonderful job and active life.. it's just, not the life for me.  Because of that I let myself fall into a hole of self despise/hatred and pity that shriveled up most of my will power and inspiration.  It's something I'm not 100% sure I'll be able to recover from.  The best way to describe it is like falling into a cold bottomless, infinitely black pit, with no light to see, nor safety cord to stop your decent.

As of this point I am officially suspending all commissions. I have a few commissioners waiting for me to start on their work.  I plan on full-filling them, but I don't know if or when that will be.  I'll send out an email giving you the option to reserve your space in line or opt to have yourself removed from the list. 

I don't like writing this as it feels like admitting defeat or waving the white flag but simply disappearing isn't right; you all deserve better then that.

You can follow my twitter account if you want to see any new work.  I do draw some random scribbles now and then but nothing like what I typically post.

I plan on returning to drawing seriously... it could be in a week but this feels like one that may last a while longer. I hope you'll all ride this out with me.

Much Love & Respect,
Jeffrey Bower (aka secoh2000)
