Yup. It’s happening. Well, not right this second, or this week- in fact not really for another two months. But– It is happening. For a lot of people, that’s not bad. In fact if you find a nice park, have at least weekends off, a reasonable amount of personal space, and don’t have a hairy,… Read More Moving into a Travel Trailer
Hi, everyone! I just want to let you all know that I am taking a bit of time off from trying to come up with posts. I have been having a bit of writers block for a little while now, along with a lot of life-stuff going on (have you noticed yet?) so I’ll be… Read More Taking a Break (of Sorts)
I have been working on my drawing skills as I pursue my dreams of someday becoming a full-time artist. I am experimenting with lots of different styles to try to figure out what my style is. I like hyper-realism and surrealism so I tried blending the two, but my hyper-realism may need some work. If… Read More Drawing Fairy Folk and Dryads
I drew this while sitting in the car, for hours. It can be pretty difficult to draw in a vehicle when sitting by a younger brother… They fling their arms and occasionally hit your page. That is when you just have to let it go. I don’t have a lot of time to myself when… Read More Drawing in the Car
A few supplies compiled for a costume idea. I’m not sure how consistent the actual costume will be with this mood, but this is the feel I am going for. I will try to post some more photos of the process as I create it, in a series of short posts like this one.
The adventures of Aaahhhh is a series I want to start that challenges me to use different mediums to have Aaahhhh run from, like the first time I made him I had made a paper airplane that kept flopping over, so I drew a little stick figure and bold letters saying AAAHHHH! This time I… Read More The Adventures of Aaahhhhhh!
I love flowers. I love anything beautiful really. I also love art, making things, dreaming of plans and ambitions, and having things to do. So, I am trying going to become a farmer-florist. I mentioned this briefly in my last post, but I hadn’t really done anything yet. I now have some cactus flower… Read More Becoming a Farmer-Florist: My Dilemma
No, I didn’t draw in a reading book. That is my art journal, so please don’t freak out. Amongst all the crazy things I’m trying to do mentioned in the previous post I did find some time to draw. I like the look of the words in the background, except for one thing… YOU CAN STILL… Read More Trying A New Technique
Hey everyone! No, I didn’t die (or this would be titled Death Update), there’s just been a whole lot of craziness going on. Most of it has been big whole-family changes, but during that time I was able to focus on some things for the future. I am a very visionary person, which is a good… Read More Life Update!
I love it when I get inspired by other artists (generally those that are much more awe inspiring than I am). Lately I’ve been looking at a lot of Ellen Jewett’s work in sculpting, and it is absolutely extraordinary! I LOVE the detail! It has that surrealistic look, and the way everything intertwines just blows my mind. Here are a… Read More Drawing Squirrels and Inspiration
