Watching Over the Bay by Connan-Bell

Hey, Connan! I can see your use of the techniques we discussed and I can already see a vast improvement in your coloring technique. The...

...but I now have a Tumblr

Seriously, I don't know why; as a cranky old man I hate the internets and all the meme-hypertexting-tweetbooking-wizardry it entails. However I noticed that a lot of artists I like and admire had posted several journals to the effect of "Sorry I haven't been on here! I post a lot more often on Tumblr!"

Long story short, I should just learn that resistance is futile and embrace the suck.

If you could find it in your heart to also embrace the suck and follow me on Tumblr, I'd be grateful. I promise to be 99% gif-free.

Also, Facebook.

McGillustrator's Profile Picture
Garrett McGillustrator
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
Obeying Doctor Who’s #1 rule not to wander off, I work as a freelance illustrator in and around my native Louisville, Kentucky. Graduating from Ivy Tech School of Fine Art + Design in May of 2011, and operating under the pseudonym “Garrett McGillustrator” (see what he did there?), I have valiantly sought to impart his talents wherever they were needed, regardless of if they were actually wanted. Unfortunate victims of my art include Louisville Magazine, the Kentucky Convention & Visitors Bureau, Luckett & Farley, The Alley Theater, local children’s book publishers, and anyone for whom I am too broke to buy an actual birthday or Christmas present.

I love things that are sweetly sad, uncommonly beautiful, things which reveal their true vulnerabilities in only the most trustworthy settings; things ironic, sardonic, ionic, iconic, but I prohibitively exclude the bubonic.
