Sketchbook Stuff, First Installment

I’m trying to work in my sketchbook more – to focus less on creating final products, and more on the process, refining skills and generating ideas.  My friend Steve and I always say that we just want the final product to be done once we see it in our heads, but we both know that’s not the case!  Hopefully doing studies and free-association and doodling will help me come up with some good stuff. Ideally I will be putting stuff here every day but knowing me that probably won’t be the case. But I can always try! ❤

Yesterday I cooked some white chicken chili and sliced up an avocado to eat with it.  I fell in love with the perfect, round little pit once I opened the fruit up, so I decided to poke at it and draw it.  This is a 40-minute sketch with part of the pit casing peeled off.

Feeling a bit down in the dumps lately.

I feel like my illustrations have gotten better and better, but I just don’t have the time to promote myself and get more work.  I know I need a portfolio site, but I just don’t have the damned time to get it up and running.

I suppose I’ll find the time over April vacation… which still feels like an eternity away.

Post the first.

Welcome to my new art blog.  It’s not much… but it’s a place for me to post my artwork, both old and new, and sort it out.  I have a lot of interface work to do, and a lot to learn about WordPress, but I suppose I’ll fumble my way through things.  That’s how I learn anyway – I try things, make mistakes, and eventually figure it all out.  Enjoy.
