It's really relaxing, actually. These are tough times and a lot of us lead high stress lives. We all need a break. Throw some chill music on and grab some markers or colored pencils or your kids' crayons. I personally use Photoshop or Manga Studio to digitally color because these are the tools of the trade I'm working with now, but I still use markers from time to time. When I do, I use Faber Castell, Artist's Loft and Copic markers.
I'm really happy that this is my first commercial project. It had to be ridiculously important with a lot of muscle, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to transcend the things that have been holding me back. Those old mental patterns were really strong. I knew my first project would have to be a powerful weapon against the attack and onslaught that my own mind is capable of doing to itself. I knew I had to design a project that would be stronger than the internal voice that has always tore me down inside (and would manifest itself in the real world through others). It would have to be a weapon to slay my demons, I thought. And knowing my demons, I needed a weapon that could take down an army. I needed to align myself with someone that had beat the odds and overcome monstrous bullies.
The choice was easy once I knew what I had to do. Is big oil a big enough bully? Or how about a close family member telling you that you'd never make it? I decided I'd had enough and that my next project had to be bulletproof.
Sure I can still be thrown out of a helicopter or leveled by a school bus, but I can't be shot down. I'm just pissed off enough about what's wrong with the world that I decided to do something about it. Anything is better than nothing! So this is how I start. I consider it cultural work that brings awareness to the causes that are important to me. Musk happens to be working on a whole big bunch of them.

Over at Patreon!
Becoming a Colonizer patron for $10 a month you get every single page emailed to you as a download. They print nicely on regular sized office paper and each illustration has a neat 8"x10" border for framing ease. I recommend printing on heavier paper, like 32 lb. paper, but any quality will do.
