I honestly don't know where to begin BUT HERE GOES NOTHING--(I'll try to not burn your eyes with a lot of text but this is too important to keep it short short)

:iconctplz::iconsaysplz:Hey guys, CT here.

Last year this time, I was sitting somewhere around 1k watchers and I definitely wasn't thinking I'd be where I am right now--more than 24k have clicked that +watch button (I owe a lot of Annie Mei images!) and I honestly cannot tell you how much your support means to me.

When the New Year's came around, I gave myself a bit of an ultimatum for my resolution.  It was one of two things:  "Follow my dreams or accept reality."  Accepting reality would mean dropping the things that I love to do.  Get a "real" job.  And take care of business.  I may be really realistic but I'm a stubborn ol' dream chaser.  Reality??  Ain't nobody got time fo' that!  All I want to see is my dream become a reality!  Who wouldn't want their dream to be their job?  And this is where you guys come in.

I need your support.  More importantly, my kitchen needs it.  As much of it my mom has been giving to me, she'd love your support for me too haha.  We had a talk and I brought something up.  Every month, if I could get 100 of you to pay $1 for one of my songs, that would be immensely helpful.  My mom likes to think a lot bigger and we wondered if even 1000 of you would want to support my efforts.  And if even more would want to support me, then I've obviously underestimated all of you!

2013 is it.  I'm either going big or going home.  If any of you would like to help me 'go big', I'll introduce you to a couple of links. :D

First up is the link to my Bandcamp where I have my music for sale.  The minimum for an album is $4 and $1 for a single track.  But you may pay as much as you'd like ;)

BUY MUSIC HERE

To stay updated on both of these things, it would be best to 'like' my facebook page or follow my twitter.

:iconfacebookplz2:facebook:icontwitterplz:twitter

Your support is super crucial right now!  I'm both excited and cautious for what this year has in store.  Thanks for taking the time to read this and I appreciate everything and anything you could do to help me out.  Whether it's buying my work or spreading the word about it!

As usual, stay awesome guys :iconsuccesskid2plz:

WELL WELL WELL! I'm very happy to read this :heart: It's always risky, deciding to chase the dream of living from your art... But it's a dream that deserves to be chased, and I hope you best of luck!  :iconloveyou4everplz:

Right now I'm a bit tight on funds (ahhhh...holidays, ack) but that Spiritual State print is really catching my eye <3

Go for it, man. Go big. You can do it, I know you can. Stay focused and kick them hard! :iconcoolspartaplz:

Go fucking get them, I really want to shake your hand for those words now...
Fuck reality, take RISKS, You will either live your life boringly or go and become a king inside your dreams you had a child. Do you want something fucking try and get it!

I'm so happy to see your watcher list explode. I knew you had the talent for it, and I'm glad that so many others can now enjoy your art work as well.
I will defiantly try to help out as much as I can, I love your music and it is worth paying for.
I'll post up this as well and see if I can get others to join in on this.

CT, I loved the music you put up there. It is wonderfully done. I love music that has no words. I'm going to be getting an Ipod classic soon. When I do I would love to download the music and help support you in your dreams. So I saved the journal and also have a question. When I do get an ipod what format should I download when buying your work so that it works on there?

Oh my gosh I would love to support you ct. I think you are an incredible artist and I would love supporting you. Expect a contribution from me!

I see below me there is a suggestion for a kickstarter. I think that would be a great idea as well! It would be a lot of work, and you might have to get creative with rewards, but I would definitely pledge to that!

Sooo what are you trying to do for a career? Because if it's got anything to do with art, you have few excuses to not have a steady job in it, especially with your skill.

You had me at "go big or go home". That's exactly what I said to myself this year as I used the profits from my Society6 print to pay for my first professional art class. I think there's a couple of euros left though, so I can share something for the start of your effort. Besides, your music isn't that bad. :D

I've already featured your art on Facebook a while back, but I'll make a post today on Tumblr where I have most followers (still probably just a fraction of what you do, so don't expect anything big to happen :)). You're the only one I know that uses Gimp with the level that you have so it's actually weird I haven't already done a post about you as I love to feature others I find inspiring. Your works def are superb, man!

I really really wish you to make it!

You could allway's start a kick starter? You would kinda have to dangle a carrot for most people tho, but alot of them do pretty well, consider it maybe?
