It's been awhile

Wow, its been a long time since I updated this!  The reason is two fold:

a) I took a new full time day job last summer, which has been beyond amazing for so many reasons.  However, it cuts into the time I previously had to spend on art when I was only working a part time job.

b) My dear old computer has finally started to go.  All of my software is on a seven and a half year old MacBook Pro.  This baby has served me well, but the OS is beyond outdated, and it no longer charges a battery, so it always has to be plugged in.  Therefor sitting down to do some digital doodling is more of a chore now.

On the bright side, reason A has put me in a position to remedy reason B, which never would have been financially possible working a part time job.

So I've stayed busy.  I did another set of wedding invitations for some dear friends, another playbill cover for the U of M TORT musical (below), and am working on getting two other projects done as well.

In the interim I've done a bit of doodling and prompted myself to update here!

I've taken lately to going through old artwork and updating it--its a fun practice; taking concepts and improving execution.  One of those is below.

Sketch dump 5.20.12.




I haven't been scanning because, frankly, I haven't had time and it's annoying!
Moving on.  Just some random stuff I got around to scanning tonight.

Slayers

Just a silly fanart piece from an old old old anime I watched way way back in the day.  Popped into my head today.

To bed!

Painting with paint

Started the under painting for a commissioned traditional piece.  Getting frustrated fitting everything on in the way I want it on there but I think I just need to step away from it for awhile.  Only an hour or two into it at this point.  PS Its going to be the  Minneapolis skyline.

Sketch Dump-- 4.3.12

 A sketch dump---I am fighting with my scanner---or more so with scanning onto a PC :/   I usually use my mac for art-related things but as I am half asleep and a little loopy, and the PC was right there in front of my face..well.  So I apologize for poor scan quality.  Some of these are rather old, since its been awhile since I have scanned out of my sketchbooks.

Enjoy.
