It was really humbling to get to do something for it, and I was really psyched to get it done! My friend …Read More

How I’m Now Inking My Art – Part 2: Electric Boogaloo

For the first time since you saw that bad joke, yes, this is a sort of “electric boogaloo”. In Part 1, I went over how I inked my piece and ended it on the part where… well, the inking is done. Is it? Well… kind of. When it comes to a piece, 90% of the …Read More

How I’m Now Inking My Work – Part 1

I started inking a new piece and I decided to do a little self-serving thing and talk about my “process”. I like inking by hand, its something I’ve always enjoyed.

How a Boring, Benign Thing Made Me Happy

I’ve been depressed. Really depressed. To a degree, it doesn’t make sense: My first art show EVER is Friday, I have almost everything ready to go, and I should be thrilled. At the same time, I’ve been depressed about the show for every reason someone would be: “Will anyone come for my art?” “Will people …Read More
