Back and Forth

Ive been so back and forth with what social media to use and what makes more sense. For the next few months i'll be avoiding Facebook in an attempt to stop procrastinating so much. I will still be blogging every Tuesday but back on my website blog. All my other accounts such as Instagram, Soundcloud and Twitter will all be linked to my website. Please be patient with me as I see what works better. My website is in the upper right corner of this blog and my podcast is in the left corner.

Imperfect Part 2

Finished painting but no illustration Friday this week. I waited a few days to post my blog in hopes of getting the motivation to create and show more. Didn't happen but i'm still pushing for the weekly posts so please be patient with me. I love the finished product of this painting but it doesn't really fit in with my children book style. I love the sketch so much though that I created a sketch page to my website, check it out Here

Imperfect Part 1

With all the struggles Ive had as an artist I think my biggest enemy is and always will be the struggle for perfectionism. The last two weeks I have been forcing this idea of finishing a painting that I really don't care for. The drawing was so fun but the end result is boredom. On top of that, when im bored i'll force myself to try over and over again to get this amazing result that never happens. For now on if i get bored or stuck I'll just force myself to move on to something else so there's always something for my weekly blogs.  With that said, the so called boredom painting is the word for internet. It's probably going to stay just a drawing. My second Sketch is for this weeks word, "Up". I love this illustration and you can count on me finishing the painting for next week. Till then, eat lot's of cake!

Sound, Spiders & Christmas

Two weeks straight! Such a small goal but closer then what ive been doing for the last two years. For this week s post I added my christmas cards along with the sketch and process. The Illustration Friday word of the weak is sound so I have a cute little deer looking up at wind chimes. I got so attached to my deer doodle that I made another word it off of him. Deer chilling with a spider during snow fall. Very cute and very simple. Hope you enjoy and I'll see you next Tuesday!

Climbing over the Dead End

Welcome to the first of many posts. Because Im not trustworthy with my procrastinating Im going to put my weekly blog between Tuesday and Wednesday for posting. My goal in mind will be to illustrate for every Illustration Friday Ive missed in the last two years along with the recent ones announced every week. Im not sure will there will get me. My style has always been a road block for me. I love what I do and how it looks but i'm caught between mediums and what really makes me happy or just looks neat. Since i'm stuck down this path I'll just have to go off into the woods and walk around in the dark for a while. Hopefully I don't trip and fall on my face.

With that said, first two words are Talk and Unicorn. Talk was inspired by kids who talk to ghosts of animals and Unicorns was inspired by the new fad of Unicorn Hot Chocolate. Hope you all like them!
