Sitting down to write this paragraph, I find myself struggling to give any of you good readers a really solid reason to invest your money in me.

Just like you, I have read, watched and heard the non-stop gimmicks of positive vibrations and hyper-energetic speeches that would lead to success and retain my doubts.

Likewise, I have read numerous kickstarters and crowdfunders for inspiration to sit down and write something seriously compelling for you to become instantly enthralled with me and what I am trying to accomplish. These avenues also came up dry.

So let me explain plainly what it is I intend to accomplish here:

For 34 years, I have had a ton of things milling around in my head and competing for attention. I, as all of you, was born with a Cerebral Pangea - a neural Eden, where thoughts and words innocently seek to develop and thrive in the midst of the ever-growing stimulus that the outside world provides.

And as the battle for survival rages outside for me, in the internal world of my mind, my own thoughts and ideas struggle to grow and outlast each other during the process of intellectual evolution that I was undergoing with every passing day. The more I live, grow and learn, the more these ideas grow, learn and live to the point where they inevitably have taken on a life of their own. The newly self-realized ideas, who at this point demand they not be lumped together, but be recognized as individuals, now challenge my core personality in a never ending series of internal debates. These insatiable lobbyists are only sated when I put pen to paper and present them to a larger community than me and each other.

The desire of life to grow beyond its initial borders is not limited to what exists in the world around me. The hunger for life that drives an idea is perhaps even more furious than that which compels any object or creature in nature. Ideas have no boundaries and no limits. They can cross all borders and atmospheres and are driven like everything else to achieve their potential. And that puts alot of pressure on the fragile shell of the artist which incubated them.

In the old days (and yes, I am that old to say that), such ravenous ideas would consume a thinker until he found a benevolent, wealthy soul or organization to support his endeavor to free these ideas and regain his sanity. The limits of these resources gave rise to our recognition of great artists, but left many talented artists to go unnoticed and impoverished. 

With the boundless range of the internet, I am hoping to reach a global audience and solicit their support in raising awareness of my ideas, funding for their development and assistance in eventually using your support to pay it forward and extending support to other artists in their endeavor to liberate the worlds of ideas that are growing within them.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me and support me.

Wow - For your contribution, I will send a pdf of four of my sketches with details on the process behind it. Every work has its origin and your dedication entitles you to an inside look at what inspires me to do what I do. Thanks again.
