A little brag

Remember when I talked about brags? Well today I'd like to brag about my husband. He is incredibly talented. Ben's an artist, and while he can do all different mediums his preferred genre is comic books and graphic novels.

He went to a prestigious vocational school where the owner is the creator of this character. The men and women who taught him are amazing in their fields. (One of his instructors has been the main pencil-er for Archie Adventures for over ten years!)

He's done free-lance work, commissioned work, even designed tattoos for people, and is currently working on breaking into the comic book industry with his own book. I literally could brag about him all day...but how about I show you?

He does work like this:
And this:
(This is how he proposed!)

Do I think it's fair he has to work jobs that fall through until he can pursue his dream full-time? Absolutely not. Do I think think he's amazing for doing it anyway so he can help support us? Completely.

So I just wanted to take a minute to brag. Because Ben is amazing and I can't wait to see his dream come true. (Want to see more of his work?)

Who do you want to brag about today?

He is so talented!! You definitely have a reason to brag. Now here's hoping his talent is recognized so he can ditch the jobs he's done/pursued and focus 100% on his craft!

Let's see... a brag... My nephew Andrew was chosen as kid of the month in his kindergarten class!! :) So proud of him!

He designs tattoos? That's good to know; my brother and I would like a family crest designed for us... may have to talk to that fabulous husband of yours sometime in the near future :)

Awww! I love this. What a sweet way to propose! And I totally know what you mean, about watching your boy work so hard to fulfil his dreams and know that it's not always easy. I'd like to brag about my boyfriend, who's been working hard at music and is making wonderful progress! It's amazing watching him do something he loves. <3

Thanks for kind comments everybody, nobody said it would be easy in fact all of my instructors said only 2% of the graduating class usually "make it" but that was back in the days when there was no internet. Thanks to the internet and social networking I think it'll be 100x easier for us modern day folks. MAN I love my wife!

Our Ben followed his heart which led him to Becky. Who is a wonderful loving and supportive wife. Now he is following his dream which we know one day, will come true. We couldn't be more proud of him and happy for the two of them.
