Rock &Roll

It's been a long time

Since I...
...posted a drawing that's up for sale on Ebay.
I did this drawing of the great ROBERT PLANT, formerly of Led Zeppelin, currently touring with bluegrass singer Alison Krauss. I am a HUGE Plant fan, from Zeppelin, from The Honeydrippers, and from is solo career. He just has a great voice and presence that I had to draw him. This piece is a charcoal drawing. I'm putting it up for Ebay and might have prints available eventually. PLEASE comment and let me know what you think, and let other Zep fans know of it.

Just wanted to let you know that you're not alone.

Dreams absolutely can come true for those who persevere. I accomplished my dream of working as an animator for a major studio and worked there for more than 12 years before stepping out to take care of my two children (like you, I'm currently working a minimum wage job that provides me flexibility while I pursue my next goal).

I've learned from experience that there are an awful lot of mediocre artists and writers out there - many less talented than you or I - making a very good living and the reason is that they did not give up when the more talented ones did.

The following bits of wisdom have enabled me to survive some very tough times:

"What one has, one ought to use; and whatever he does, he should do with all his might.
-Marcus Tullius Cicero, statesman, orator

"To those who need encouragement, remember this: Beware of quitting too soon. Dr. Seuss' first children's book was rejected by 23 publishers. The 24th publisher sold 6 million copies".

"Press on. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unrewarded talent. Education alone will not: the world is full of uneducated failures. Persistence alone is omnipotent".
-Calvin Coolidge

"Fall down seven times, stand up eight".
-Japanese Proverb

Take care and best of luck,
