Guy Sucks At Photoshop, So He Spends 10 Years Illustrating His Book With MS Paint

Working hard until you achieve your goal requires tons of time, effort, luck, discipline and perseverance to follow through no matter what obstacles stand in your way, in other words way too much.

But a few dedicated folks have managed to live up to the adage "if you want something bad enough you have to work for it; If you don't get it, work harder", and they're making the rest of us look bad!

Author and now illustrator Pat Hines wrote a book called Camp Redblood and the Essential Revenge which he felt needed illustrations, but he sucked at Photoshop and other digital art programs.

So Pat spent 10 years mastering the "classic" PC art program MS Paint so he could create his own artwork, and his perseverance paid off.

Now Pat's book has snazzy artwork and he has the satisfaction of knowing it'll only take him another twelve years or so to master Photoshop!
