With the time I don’t have, I need to re-teach myself Photoshop, which I haven’t used in years. The Wacom is an investment I need, and one that I’ve been so intimated by that I haven’t had the courage to really use it yet.
I have a thousand excuses… most notably work, but I will just leave it at stating that I’m juggling too many things right now and I’m having to choose between which platforms I share my material on. Being an artist desiring to do so professionally (and for a profit to sustain me someday) is, toContinue reading “I have not been consistently posting here lately.”
I don’t feel that detailing that further will do anything to help how I am currently feeling, but tonight I was able to complete my first piece in several weeks! It is a simple painting, and that’s okay. I enjoyed doing it, and am satisfied with how it turned out. Sometimes simple is needed. ThatContinue reading “It’s been a tough few weeks.”
This is because during that time I was extremely ill and found it difficult to do anything but sleep. Because my brain refused to function properly, I haven’t drawn much beyond sketches and have struggled with the coloring process. It has become so time-consuming that it’s hindering my projects and too many are going onContinue reading “I’ve been absent on all platforms for the last several days.”
The Fourth Kind, one of the most terrifyingly fascinating movies I’ve ever seen… although the truth behind it is disputed to say the least. That being said, I’ve done four or five pieces on different mediums depicting the combination of owls and aliens, and so I decided to do another one.

I ordered them on matte paper, which is more expensive but has such a unique physical feel to them (every personContinue reading “I developed some prints…”
Some time ago I began working on an original character to draw whenever I don’t have a subject in mind (something to replace Rei Ayanami from Neon Genesis Evangelion, who’s my current default), and it’s proving more difficult than I thought it would be! I’ve watched all kinds of tutorials on character creation, many ofContinue reading “Character Creation”
I was recently “asked” to be the next Bakery Manager Spotlight in a small newsletter for the company I work for. I say “asked” because it didn’t seem much like a request. Anyone who knows me is well aware I dislike personally being in the spotlight and that it makes me extremely uncomfortable. While IContinue reading ““Manager Spotlight””
In my last post I spoke about how much I love my apartment… This is why.
As I worked away for my eleven-hour shift at my day job, my brain focused on other things in the background. In my old apartment, and the old apartment before that, I always had a space to work on my creative endeavors. Once I had a large desk, that seemed to take up a lotContinue reading “Creation Station”
