This blog is a journal of my continuing journey to become a better artist while keeping the fun in art making. I've posted class assignments, personal, and professional work. In every piece of art I make, no matter whether the goal is academic, personal, or monetary, this blog is a reminder to myself to make sure I always enjoy the process. After all, why should any of us bother pursuing such a hard field to get into as art, if we're not having fun with it!

I worked right next to the panda enclosure.
Sometimes I draw freehand directly into Photoshop using a tablet, but a
lot of times I do a pencil sketch first, then scan that in to use as
I've been focusing a lot on color and shapes lately, trying to get a nice contrast and pop with each piece!
