You'll never get anywhere. by jollyjack You'll never get anywhere. by jollyjack
And the naysayers wonder why I don't listen to them....

You shouldn't either! If you feel in your gut that it's the right course of action; it usually is.

(.....unless your gut tells you to "go play in traffic". Cuz your gut's not telling you the right course of action, there. It's trying to kill you.)

Wonder where I'd be right now if I'd listened to those teachers and focused on learning all those important skills that I've never found a use for in the real world?

I'm guessing; Data Entry.

Followed by suicide......

Why the hell would anyone ever want you to stop drawing Chloe, Kat, Scarlet and all the other eye candies? The world's ugly enough as it is.

Your living in a time where pubic schools are created to make employees for the business world. Not to support the arts, that is for the private schools.

yyyyyyyyyep. Do what you love, even if what you love is drawing boobs. And if you're good at something, don't do it for free.

Age-wise I'm the second frame, and the description fits me very well except perhaps your speculation about how life could've turned out.

Very well said.

I made the mistake of listening to those "reasonable" voices as a kid. Now I'm having to play catch up with my art...

Have you ever liked doing 3D stuff (e.g. Google Sketchup), or do you prefer pencil-and-ink 2D work?

I'm reminded of a Kanye West song (and I'm sorry for that, by the way...) that seems to fit this situation "Biggie told me switch the style up and if they hate, then let them hate and watch the money pile up"

that is to say, I still love your awesome work

I love this. It's so inspirational. It tells me to try, try, and try again! And eventually, maybe someone will like my art. Unlikely, but a guy can dream~!

you'd be trapped in your parent's apartment with agoraphobia, trying at 35 to listen to those  voices you should have listened too as a child, like a certain myself I don't like talking about...

What's important is to listen to critique, not "I don't believe it's possible." Only from a hand facing upward can we aspire, not from one directed at the ground.

Jack, I must thank you personally for drawing this comic. I showed it to my fiance (who has been doubting her drawing skills for quite some time now >.> ) and I could instantly see a spark in her eyes.

You know, one of those moments of "He's right! I CAN do it!"

So, from the bottom of my heart,

Thank you.

-Haru T.

honestly I'm in the opposite position in college doing something i don't like because I'm not skilled enough or have enough connections to do what i love. I struggle through it and am graded on the three things i hate the most. Group projects, Multiple choice tests and oral presentations..

I just want it to be over so i can work get some money move out and draw and play music or stream video games in my spare time, and not bang my head over textbooks.

I salute you, JollyJack.
