"Man’s Road"
Watched The Last Unicorn for the first time since I was a child, and so many more things make sense now that I’m an adult.

"Reflections I - V"
Some personal work, series-style! Featuring Cortis, a blobbish world-traveler.


So I found out today that this series was selected for inclusion in this year’s 3x3 pro show annual! These were some breakthrough pieces for me (and thus sentimentally important), so I’m completely ecstatic. :)

It’s day 12 of the 30-day Improvement Challenge, but the view from my window is a fence (with the occasional squirrel/orange carcass). So here’s the Day 11 prompt instead: Draw a BG with 2-pt perspective.

To my great relief, we’re hitting the “landscape” part of the 30-Day Improvement Challenge.
Day 10: Draw a BG with 1-point perspective. Negative points if it’s an empty street or railroad.
So I drew a mostly empty street (that is a population-worthy sign)…and put away the pencil for now.

The challenge continues!
Day 6: Design a character using this generator. There is no “fish accessory” option, but these things just happen.
Day 7: Draw the weirdest thing in your house, plus shadows/highlights.
I live with a toy sculptor, so there is a lot of weird stuff floating around. The choice was hard…but Mothra won out in the end.

So these guys are some nursery illustrations for a couple expecting their first child. They wanted something for the year of the horse: one in an ink brush style, and one in the way I usually work. I’ve been doing a lot of special effects lately, so this was a fun change of pace!
The baby was actually born while I was working on these…it really gets to me to know that someone is going to grow up seeing my artwork. :’)

Day 4 of Improvement Hell: Draw a part of the human anatomy you have trouble with. x20, with at least 5 being skeletal/musculature studies.
I initially started with hands, but I was told it was “definitely heads.” I was surprised to realize how much I’d been avoiding my mediocre skills: I can’t say how badly I wanted to quit with the pencil and just do color blocks with this one. Whew, improvement hell indeed!

Catch-up post for a 30-Day Drawing Challenge, kicked off by fine folks Anna and Yutaan on Sunday (the 25th)! It looks like it’ll be a grand time, so folks should feel free to join in if a particular day/week/number strikes their fancy. I’ve been grumbling about my basic pencil skills recently, so I’m going to be limping along behind them (with poor phone photos).
DAY 1: Introduction: freelance illustrator and ice cream enthusiast. The blurriness is true to life.
Day 2: Figure from reference found at Yutaan’s fantastic suggestion
Day 3: Action figure from reference, this fine lady.

"Fight & Flight"
Excited to finally post my final for Light Grey Art Lab's Animystics show, opening April 25th! The topic was very personal, so this was a fun piece for me. Framed and signed prints are available here, if you’re interested. Part of the show proceeds go to animal rescues of the artists’ choice, so be sure to support and check out the rest of the show! There’s so much great stuff. :)

Update: It’s the last week for Animystics and getting signed/framed prints! Hope everyone has been enjoying the show so far, and a huge thank you to those who have shared and supported! It’s time to snag one last gander at all this lovely art before the show closes on the 23rd~
