Melancoly Baby

Well, I have all but moved in my new place, nice neighborhood, weird housemates, and a good movie theater with bad, bad, popcorn. My apartment is tiny, crowded, I'm not sure how creative I can get, but it looks like I'm gonna get rid of more stuff, I guess my goal is to have as little stuff as possible, I have gotten rid of most of my comic related books, except for the ones that are reference. They say if you haven't used something in over a year to get rid of it. The weird thing is that there are things I still enjoy that I haven't read in more than 5 years , but still, I need to get rid of it. Old comics, and of course CDs.

The odd thing is that most of my space is taken up by my sketch books. I have been tempted to throw out some of my old artwork from college and high school. I haven't had the guts, but the sketchbooks... there are too many good ideas in it related to Pipe Dreams that I want to keep, just in case something finally good happens to my life regarding it.

Anyway, I whine. I ask this question, have any of you guys thrown out your artwork? If so, what? And what stuff will you not throw out that might seem strange to others?

Do not throw out any artwork or your sketchbooks. You’ll regret it. I still have all of my sketchbooks. I even have artwork from my childhood, high-school, and college.

My professional artwork I either sell, store away somewhere, or give away. I’ve done this with a bunch of ARGGH!!! and Nihilist-Man pages. The cool thing about working for DC Comics is that every few months, they mail me back a third of my artwork. If I can sell some of these ages or give them away to fans, than I'm happy. :)
