Heyo! I randomly stumbled across your ArtCast on your website, really great stuff to listen to while drawing! I've listened to about a dozen of them already. Keep making awesome stuff!

Hey there!  It's great to connect on here as well as your website!  I have shared some of your articles on Pinterest.  I know you mention facebook, google+, and such, but I thought you might like to know your content is floating around Pinterest as well to reach even more people!

P.s. - I love looking through your digital paintings!  I love how they have so much variation but still all hold your "style."

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.
