Sorry to hear that your having trouble getting recognized =/. If it's any consolation, I like your work, even though it's not my kind of art lol. Your very good at what you do =]
You've never thought about taking things a step further and working with Photoshop or Illustrator? That might actually help you. In fact, it's going to make your good work even more amazing. Photoshop and Illustrator don't make people good at art. The programs use the very tools real artists use, and help it become digital. I'll tell you right now, if you take a few classes at the local college on illustrator/photoshop, your work is going to pop like you've never known.
