Digital Sketching

As I'm slowly starting to drawing bigger and more complex pictures (very slowly) I've come to realize the importance of pre drawing out my ideas. One of the ways I do this is I scan in the original "not done" drawing and then add element digitally in photoshop just to give a feel on how it will look. It's a great way to try new things without the risk of destroying the piece with a mistake. I find doing larger pieces takes a lot more brain power, and a newer less "freestyle" way of thinking.

January comes to a close, and I'm looking more and more forward to the lighter months a head. I reached a bit of a creative block recently, strangely the thing that unblocked it was going out and putting up posters. Now the ideas are starting up again. I realize I need constant projects to keep myself a float. I had a teacher ask me the other day if I had "figured out what I wanted to do with life" The question struck me as not odd but nieve. I thought I was already doing what I wanted to with life, at the age of 26 I think life just "happens" to me. I trust and hope for the best but I can't control my fate, I just do, I just create. I can seek things, but honestly I don't even know what I fully want.

No Photos

I went to a big national gallery today with my camera. Strangely the only thing I wanted to take a photo of was the "no photo" sign.

Soft Tri

Well the vacation is over and it's time to get back to art making. This month see's lot's design work, so I got to get on those draft to send out to clients. It's always nice to start the year off with work and focus. Also must send some images for a mag that are a bit over due, I guess things that don't pay can sometimes be a tiny bit late.....but not to late.
