I've been scouring the web for inspiration... I believe I've found it/him

And also a very nice person to talk too!!! I was lucky enough to meet him (several times now) at the San Diego Comic Con. He has had a booth there for the last 2 years that I remember. Hope to see him again this year. I bought several of his prints and his book.

I was watching 60 minutes last night and they talked about artists who are considered 'genius'. They said geniuses create art at a hurried pace in comparison to normal artists who take their time. It was interesting and I kinda think about that whenever i read profiles of fellow digital artists.
