It's been a LONG while!

Wow, I can't believe it's been over a year! Despite the lack of posts, it's been my busiest year ever! Full time employment and freelancing on the side have kept me creating new art every day. Most of it is graphic design for the 6 different bars and restaurants I'm the creative director/marketing manager for. The freelance stuff is mostly web, logo, and branding design, with a few fun projects like T's and stationary scattered in every month. I still try to draw daily (via sketchbooks, scrap paper, napkins, etc.) attend life drawing sessions every month, and have been working on some painting and little craft projects, too.

But it is time to get back to the blog! To kick things off, here is my most recent project. It is for a big group show, Unicornicopia, held at Anaheim's Rothick Art Haus this month. Rothick hosts Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School every 2nd and 4th Sunday night, and they invited some of their artists to submit pieces for the group show. I submitted a couple of life drawings from our last Unicorn-model session, as well as this piece: "Welcome Home Old Friend!" The woodland critters welcome home their old forest friend, the bright and shining Unicorn. Draw in pencil on wet media paper, and colored in watercolors (Dr. PH Martin's liquid ones) and Prismacolor colored pencils. Matted and framed so it'll look all fancy. Enjoy!
