Holy monkey; I'm approaching 22k pageviews? What the hell is everyone looking at!?
In all seriousness, I'm very grateful to everyone who's taken their time to look at my stuff.
Wanted to drop a line and let you know I hadn't forgotten you guys. I still lurk around here every few days, or if I forget at least once a week. You may notice that I haven't posted too much lately, and the main reason for that is that at the moment I'm wrapped up in a number of things and still doing tons of digital painting, none of which I'm able to share at this point. Keep your eyes peeled later this fall, and I'll be able to share more information and reveal the big project!
Other than that, I've been very busy being dad, being chauffeur, being cook, and being part-time-employed-hours-without-part-time-paycheck working on my art.
On top of all that, I've been actively engaging with new colleagues at the #OatleyAcademy
. For anyone who wants to up their game in terms of their visual storytelling, I can't praise it highly enough. Season 1 is almost up, and season 2 I'm sure will be starting probably shortly after the new year. Check 'em out.
I'm also auditioning for a very exclusive online composition class, jockeying amongst nearly 100 other equally-motivated applicants for a handful of slots. I've written my letter of intent, and am gathering my references. Hopefully they aren't as tired of me as I am, and if everything goes how I'd like, you should a dramatic improvement in my subsequent art pieces.
Last thing I'll mention; most of what I like to put up here are what I consider my 'finished' or at least 'developed' pieces. For my everyday sketching-for-fun stuff, check out my Instagram
, and only because it's a necessary evil in this artist-self-promotion thing, it also cross-posts to that roiling cacophonous cesspit of evil and intellectual decay
if that happens to be your particular social media poison.
I'll be going to CTNX later this year so if you happen to be going as well, let me know! I'd look forward to putting faces to a bunch of the names who've been in it for the long haul
P.S. Catch up with me! I'd love to shoot the breeze! Official
