Painting: President Evil ACEOs

These paintings are just a fun exploration of our obsession with zombies and money. The idea came when doing a zombie artist trading card swap and the results were so excellent that a series seemed the next natural progression.

For purchase.

Here is the key to success: try. As long as you are doing something you are becoming more successful. The time to start is now. Have you ever tried something and at the end felt like it was a mistake? You just succeeded.

If you aren’t good at anything do what you enjoy. There are countless millionaires that aren’t really good at anything. They keep doing however. How many millionaires have lost their entire million dollar fortune? Almost all of them.

How about this guy? In 1991 he escaped bankruptcy by the skin of his teeth. Now today the dude is plenty rich because he never gave up. He kept trying.

Doing something makes you feel fantastic too. Doesn’t this guy look like he feels fantastic? Of course he does.

If he couldn’t do real estate I bet he would be selling lemonade and be awesome at it.

Do I know I can become wealthy selling paintings? No, but I will try. What I learn from this business will just help me in the next. But I will do my darndest to make it work.

I’m not sure my blog is worth a damn either. Maybe it isn’t now but if I keep at it, it will be. Until then people may just have to indulge me.

Do something, maybe you won’t have a meteoric rise to success or maybe you will. Enjoy the journey, learn. Everything you want to know about your biz has probably already been done or tried. The people who tried love to talk about their success and really will never stop. Google your hobby’s best business practices and you always find a how to.

Your homework is to do something. Let me know how it goes and I will support you. You are the best. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Inspirations: Larry Elmore

Remember this picture? If you played Dungeons and Dragons in the 80’s

you probably do. When I saw this I said to myself “One day I will be a fantasy artist, oh yes.”

I would see a ton of Larry’s art over the years, mostly it was this guy fighting dragons.

You can see more of his awesome art here


Did you see he was selling paintings for like $5000? Wowie Zowie I want some of that!

I always thought that would be a fun job. Make money painting B.A. stuff like this. Going to conventions as a guest of honor.

So this will be one of my goals to be accomplished within the next 5 years: Have some of my art published in a role playing game. DnD would be preferred but any RPG company will do. If the 5 year deadline is coming and my art has yet to be published in any RPG material I suppose I will just have to create my own adventure or something and use my own art.
