I’ve been doing a lot of drawing lately! Sometimes you’ve just bombarded with ideas, and you’ve got to draw them all out and then work on them one at a time. I get a lot of my ideas from my writing, and others just sort of come into my head (inspired by things, I’m sure). In the case of Umbra, I got this idea from my writing.

Most of the time, I am too busy (or too lazy, really your preferable choice of words here!) to participate in a lot of the artist “events” that happen over social media. The past couple of years I’ve been trying to take more of an active interest in trending artist topics as a way of showcasing my artwork to new people. The past few years I’ve done inktober and made at least one picture for MerMay. I also participated in #ArtvsArtist the past couple of times it came around. Look at me go!Continue reading Siren, 2018, In Progress Pics – MerMay!
It’s no secret that I am a feet-hater. Unlike many other artists who choose not to confront hands and cleverly attempt to hide them, I actually love drawing hands.

This new work I made rather quickly. I had seen a few gorgeous pictures of some albino folks online. I often look at the albino color palette of skin, given my character Azra (and his counterpart Falco) are both leucistic, meaning they suffer from partial loss of pigmentation, mostly in their skin. Anyway, I like drawing bugs a lot, and I often see a flutter of bright white moths around my front porch light, so I got to thinking about the contrast of white on white and then black.
I noticed the other day that it had been a little bit of time since I had updated my YouTube channel with any new videos. It’s not like I have an expansive YouTube channel or a ton of videos, but I do like to make a video from time to time, usually timelapse recordings, so I can show my process to those who might be interested in seeing it or learning about it (or even learning from it; I personally like to watch other artist’s timelapse videos as well).
To remedy this, you can probably imagine what I did.
