The Explorer

I have plenty of photos of myself and other people to guide me in working out the small details later.

This is still a very quick rough sketch, just an impression, but it's enough.  It gives us a sense of adventure and intrigue.  Something is being discovered here and we'd all love to know what happens next.

What do you imagine is happening next?

An interviewer once asked me, "What scares you?"
Everything I’m doing scares the hell out of me.  People don’t understand this when they see you out there doing your thing, they just assume you’re in your comfort zone, but that’s not so.  I’d be in my comfort zone working in a factory or something. 
 Structure is much more comfortable than chaos and a 9 to 5 job is very structured.  The life of an artist is so completely unpredictable.
 I was raised to think I’d burn in hell for enjoying life.   Even though I don’t believe that stuff anymore it’s still deeply ingrained in my psyche that I’m possibly going to be punished for everything I’m doing or that every choice may be unworthy somehow.  It makes you second guess everything you do.

I've been wanting to launch a Patreon site for some time now to fund me as I explore this fantasy life, but just can't bring myself to do it because it feels like begging or getting something for nothing. But I think I may have finally come to an agreement with myself about it.
More soon.
