...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.

Sincerely,
McGillustrator

Artist | Professional | Digital Art

I am recent graduate with aspirations to make it big in the world as an illustrator, though my introverted manner oftens stands in the way. Even still, I stand firmly rooted in the principle that if every day I push further the boundaries what I consider to be the limits of my skills, that hard work is always rewarded even if the work oft times serves as it's own reward.

My influences are an ever-broadening scope of new and interesting artists that the internet has made accessible and viewable to me, though I grew up entranced by classic Disney films and Warner Brothers shorts, which still serve as the source of style, as pale an imitation as it may be. I love things sweetly sad, uncommonly beautiful, ironic, sardonic, ionic, things that reveal their true vulnerabilities in only the most trustworthy settings. I seek out for inspiritation, and myself strive to create, art and imagery that elevates the viewer to a level that allows them to understand the quality they possess which makes them uniquely human. I feel that abasement is for the unimaginative, that shock is for inwardly ugly, and that pretention is for the arrogant. Knowing one's self to be a fool is the beginning of wisdom, and I am joining this community looking forward to how much I can learn.

tl,dr;
Hi! I draw! I hope you like it!
