Change is Coming (New Account)

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 7, 2015, 8:36 PM
Hey All,

I have a bit of an announcement. depending on who is reading this, it may or may not come as a surprise.  

I've decided that I want to start pushing myself towards doing full digital painted illustration and concept artwork while slowly moving away from comic book coloring work.

When I decided I wanted to pursue art professionally years ago I never really wanted to be a 'colorist only' It was just the path towards my goal I found myself on with my existing artistic skills as they were at the time.

I don't regret my years doing it, coloring professionally has helped me improve as an artist and a person and its given me insight into the good and bad of the creative fields. I've made mistakes, I have achieved dreams, I've meet heroes and been a part of creating great new worlds.

But I have reached a point where I find myself with very few remaining aspirations as a comic book colorist and now I want to work towards seeing what I can do about achieving some of my other dreams.

I think its important that I make it clear that I am not quitting coloring, not right away atleast. like most people looking to change careers quitting outright is not really an option, so I will still be available for coloring work for a quite while yet. but I feel like I need to acknowledge, for me at least, that I am working towards what I feel will be a positive change.

I have been debating with myself as to whether or not to keep my existing pseudonym Eddy swan or switching to my actual name. After struggling to find a way that I like to market myself as Ben lucas. I've decided I've just put too much work into crafting the "Eddy Swan" logo and brand over the years to let it go.

So I created a new Account Eddy-Swan-Art where I will be posting all of my own artwork, and I've changed this Deviantart account to 'Eddy-Swan-Colors' I will continue to post my colors and run shop here. Other social media I will decide upon later.

Look forward to seeing new artwork and further updates from me soon. ;)
