If there's one subject I see beginner artists asking about time and time again, it's art style.
The idea of having a recognizable style - something that people use to gauge whether or not a piece of artwork belongs to you - is certainly appealing. Unfortunately, the process of developing an art style is not something that happens overnight, as ideal as that would be. Read More
Blogs are weird.
As far back as I can remember, I've wanted to keep up with some sort of blog. I thoroughly enjoy writing and sharing that writing with others, so it seemed like a good fit. Throughout the years I've probably had dozens of different ones, each revolving around a particular theme that I inevitably abandoned. Read More
I'm finally getting back around to doing a weekly (inconsistently) update, and a lot has happened. Due to hurricane Irma, my family and I left the state for about a week while everything boiled over. There wasn't a lot of time for creating art or videos, and the idea of doing a weekly update when all I had to talk about was my sketchbook didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. However, I'm finally starting to get back into the swing of things, and I have quite a few things to talk about this time around. Read More
Much like last week, the majority of my work this week was focused on YouTube and creating videos to post over there. I've slowly but surely started to fall in love with the actual process of creating videos, and it fills me with an incredible sense of accomplishment to set a video up to be posted.

That meant a lot of thinking, pondering, and writing down my thoughts and emotions in an attempt to figure out what exactly I wanted to do in the weeks that follow. Because of this, I'm willing to let it slide. Read More
All things considered (we had family over on Wednesday and Monday was rough) I think I had a pretty productive week. I had a lot of fun working through new concepts and experimenting with things that will hopefully help me grow as an artist. I hope you all enjoy. Read More
A big thing that happened this week as far as my writing is concerned was the completion of the first draft of Binary Tears! I'm pretty happy with the way the novella turned out, as far as a first draft is concerned, but I'm sure I'll think otherwise when I reread it in December, when I plan to start editing. Read More
Everyone has different ideas of what makes a good sketchbook; some people swear by Moleskine sketchbooks, while others think they are overrated. Some people prefer a spiral bound sketchbook, because of the way you can work on a single page at a time, and others prefer hardbound sketchbooks due to the flow each spread has. Read More
