I used to believe the better I would get in my craft the better off I would end up in the future.Now I know that is far from the truth.If all I know is animation and sketching(which by the way I consider an art,just like animation or art what have you) that leaves my open to finacial struggle.Now I feel like it is so important and it is absolutely essential that I become a jack of all trades especially when it comes to FINANCES and CASH FLOW.I'm not saying that I'm giving up on creating.I'm just spending more time observing and even more time on Getting my money's right.The last thing I would want is for me is to be a big legendary figure in the Field. Someone that everybody thinks of when artist comes to mind and not be able to pay people on a timely basis really churns my stomach.
So now I've decided to finding out things for myself and maybe even by myself could be the most effective approach possible.I've already developed schemes on how to get where I want to be.One of my mentors asked me where do you want to be.I told him I want an island all my own and a mountain I could live in and/or work.I want to travel the world with ease and little concern on money.I want to revolutionize how we all animate not through technology but through careful observation and experimentation.I saw my self in the future but I wasn't animating as much.No I was managing guiding and pushing the goals of a company that would end the page of great influential movements.A company as a movement?Yes.I believe that any time you get a group of people together to have an impact wether it be through comercial,small business,corporate chains etc.You're pretty much saying that there is something either not right or could be improved upon and you're just the person to do it.
Now I must admit I don't know how I'm going to do it.But you ask all of the people who have made huge contributions to the world wether it be George Washington Carver,Albert Einstein or Pablo Picasso.Create a time machine that connects and pinches everyone of your blood vessels. Travel through time,but while your traveling set the option to "if unknown or not sure SELF DESTRUCT"because if you're traveling through time its always DO or Die!Once you've reached Picasso,Carver, or Einstein look at the settings look back at them and ask them how are they going to make a change or how are they going to revolutionize modern thought or practice?Than look back at your settings "if unknown or not sure SELF DESTRUCT".Will you survive?
Investigating is a life long craft.
