Life & It’s Crossroads

Ever get to the point where your not to sure where you are going? 

Maybe I’m being impatient and wanting things to change for the better. Don’t get me wrong, I like where things are at and how my life is going so far. Given everything that has happen in the last two years. But sometimes I feel stuck in this loop that’s always repeating. 

I think that is one of the main reasons why I started this blog in the first place. Plus with podcasting again now, that adds another escape. I use to do a lot of paintings and/or drawing, but I find myself turned off by it. I think it was mostly cause by other people’s thoughts about my art. Or it became what the other person wanted, I got use to doing pictures for other people or changing my style because what I was painting bothered them.. I wasn’t doing it for me anymore… Infact I haven’t painted anything for myself in years. Maybe I should try and change that. I miss doing art shows and getting together with other artist and talking shop.

I know I started writing a book about a year and half ago. I think it only 25% done and I hit a wall. I have the idea where the book is going to go, as well as the subject matter. I mean it’s mostly stories from my life, it’s just shockingly hard to get down on paper. I think the problem I’m running into, is that I’m worried about people might think about it. Altho I’m at the point where I really don’t care anymore haha. Been judged on my past for so long, guess I got a little punchy. My history is what is it and I don’t regret one things at all.

When it is all said and done. I am happy, I have a job, a roof over my head and a wonderful girlfriend. Plus I have two health kids that cause grey hair and drive me up the wall at times hahaha.

His Bio: “Hello there!  I’m glad you could make it.  I am Rocky Davies and so am I.  Ha, after looking around at my site I’m sure you’ve noticed that I like to do a wide variety of things.  This is true and its worked so far and so I am sticking to it.  I like to let the project define the style that I work in instead of letting my style define the projects I get hired for.  That has allowed me to work in a large range of fields from books to cartoons to video games to t-shirts and so on.

I love variety.  I love switching it up and tackling a new challenge.  If you need an artist that can think on their feet and adapt to nearly any situation, I’m your man.  If on the other hand, you want an art-bot that kicks out preprogrammed homogenized slush, then call Robert Finklebum Art & Linoleum.  They come highly recommended and can treat your rain gutters at the same time.

As a history lesson, I grew up as a product of the 80’s and so the majority of my influences started there.  I grew up watching cartoons, reading comics, collecting toys, playing video games, and drawing, drawing, drawing.  All of that mashes together in my collection of work.  I would fill sketchbooks with all kinds of crazy images since I was able to hold a pencil.  I took all the art classes I could in school and then went on to get a BFA in illustration from BYU in 2003.”
