Bah! I've already sent this one in for the SVS and I can already see so many things I need to change. I need to learn to wait on things! Draw something, then leave it alone for awhile. Then come back to it and you'll see it in a new light! 

Digital, Photoshop

SVS is amazing, by the way! I seriously suggest you go check it out!!!

SCBWI: Admire

Had a lot of fun with this one! I thought about someone being admired from afar... 
in a lunchroom at school, completely oblivious.

Sometimes I jump the gun...

...and draw before I look deeper into a topic. But at least I have created an image I like. :)

I've had little time lately to do any painting, unfortunately, but this is my "ME" time.

Creative Market

I have a new little design shop! I love making little vectors in my free time (free time? what's that?) so this is where I'll post them!

Bought some cheap color film from Walmart the other day during a sale and broke out the old Canon film camera! Little did I know, no where in town processes film for negatives anymore! You have to send them off and pay for a CD with the images... for $9. I have a scanner that can scan film so that's just a waste of money for me. I didn't want to buy chemicals to do it myself because I have no where to dump the chemicals safely. Buuutttt, I found out about CAFFENOL! Which is where you develop film with instant coffee, washing powder, and vitamin C! Below are some examples (took me three rolls of film before I could get the hang of it... mainly because I'm using color film...) I think I'll invest in some black and white film so that they give me better (CLEARER) quality with the way I'm able to develop... But it was fun!

Little Things

I believe I've been a bit stir crazy with all this weather lately! I've worked on commissions, but more so, I've been doing a lot of random little paintings!

Mouse Story

This is a little something I have in the works! I've been working on this story little bits at a time, but it'll be adorable when finished!

Book Ideas

I've had so many book ideas lately and I've been trying to divide up my time for all of them! But maybe it's better to work on a few at a time instead... Things are moving slowwwlyyy....

See this speed painting here!

Watercolor Speed Painting

Lately I've been taking small doodles and recording myself painting them for my youtube channel. I'm gearing up and practicing so that when I do a "serious" painting, my skills with video editing, angles, etc. aren't so shoddy... So if you want to see this image being painted, click here!

Be gentle... I'm new to this.. :)
Also if you have any tips for me, please comment or shoot me an email!!!

The View...

...I had during the 2016 Super Bowl game.
I'm wondering whether I should paint this digitally or traditionally with watercolor.
