How to start a drawing

Not dead or homeless yet...

Hi guys,

I know I've been totally off the map lately. A lot has happened. My Cintiq 18SX which I paid $4000 for 5 years ago totally died and I spent over a grand to replace it with a smaller 12WX and I'm a bit at a loss as to how to get NTSC video to show up properly without the screen scrolling or getting cropped. I kinda wish I could get it to show up letterboxed.

In September I'll be teaching online at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. The paperwork isn't finalized so I'm probably jinxing it by talking about it here, but it's just what I've always wanted - to be able to teach people right from my own home.

I finally seem to have put two-and-two together and gotten painting and drawing to kiss and make up and now my process has become an amazing bastard child of colour sketching. If I can get this video to properly letterbox, I'll be glad to pick up where I left off. Okay, and now to show some pictures to show you all how awesome I am (no, not really) as a preview of what'll be covered in future episodes.
