Son of a gun!  You're here at DA. 

I followed up on a reply I just got from Travis Bond regarding an e-mail I sent after listening to my first PAPER WINGS podcast (mine was dated January 22!)  Travis explained that you are migrating away from Paper Wings to, which explained the slow turn-around. 

In searching for I found a reference to you at DA.  Could it be the same guy?  Sure enough, it's you!  I suppose Travis is here, too - and Laura.  (Can you send along their links?) 

Dang!  It's a small world.

Even before I registered, I put a Paper Wings link in the resource center on my profile page.  I'll have to update it to 

Dude!  You are so right - the process IS the payoff!  (If not, I'm screwed.)

LOVED your chats with Noah Bradley about freelancing and work in general (and your artistic skill goes without saying). Looking at your quote about process, seems like you may have read Mastery by George Leonard as well.

Anyways, been taking this art and success thing a lot more serious in the last few months and just wanted to say thanks for the info and inspiration.

Well i didn't know you knew about him, specially because i have mentioned his Magic Box course that i'm following.

Ha!  That's funny.  I knew you were taking a course on the internet, but I didn't know it was Oatley's.  I just found out about the digital painting course a few days ago.  Maybe you mentioned his name and I didn't place it correctly, because I used to think of him as a story-teller/writer, instead of an illustrator. 

I imagine you must be very happy with his instruction and with your progress in the course.  He strikes me as highly experienced, skilled and honest - and someone easy to get along with because he is an expert at communicating.
