Latest Work

So here is the most recent art thing I have worked on (on other words, the last artistic endeavor of mine I have touched or made progress on…I typically have…a million things working at once). It’s pencil, ink, marker, colored pencil in one of my larger sketchbooks. As with most of my work, finishing is harder for me than starting, and requires more applied intent, design-mindedness, and thought than the typical beginnings of works that are much more…flowing and random, spurred by emotion and motion (of my hand making the lines and that) and feel and experiment. And then it sort of takes form or starts to shape into something and builds.

It doesn’t have a title or anything yet, and I’m not sure what I’ll do with it, but here it is, out into the world to see where it goes or what it might become (just like how it was born…d’aww).

This is atypical of me in that I usually try to start from the beginning with my work, or add it all at once and be all thorough and whatnot, posting to all the various sites I have some sort of presence on (DeviantArt, Behance, Facebook, etc.) but for now I will be happy with my post here happening and the future potential of links and plan to post the final version to those sites. It makes me anxious to think that someone might see something I’ve made and not be able to find a nice coherent and complete site to peruse, but I’ll get there. Maybe I should make a watermark for my images next?

First New-Host Post

REAL first post was sabotaged by a copy-and-paste error. 😦 It was very eloquent and thoughtfully worded. I’ve become quite discouraged about losing it, and lost most of my will to try to recreate my self-summary, hopes, and intentions. I’m sure they will crop up later or inadvertently manifest themselves eventually.

What I will reiterate: A strong recommendation to the book that encouraged me to start this page/blog on a domain of my own where I can always be found, to show my work and self as an artist and weird creative lunatic, and cultivate my passions and talents and hopefully connect with like minds. Perfect for those like me who don’t really know where to start, have a handle on their creative talent or skill but aren’t business or marketing-minded and just want to make their art. Simple and powerful advice. Book: “Show Your Work” by Austin Kleon (mmm cute AND creatively brilliant…). Site: <http://austinkleon.com/show-your-work/ >

Up next: some of my art and creative endeavors. I will try to fight the urge to do everything and once and overwhelm myself out of regular posting.
