Good-bye blog

After seven years I have decided to make the switch over to Tumblr. It's been a great experience blogging here but I feel like a need a fresh start and I feel my art has needed one too. If anyone would like to visit me over at my new art blog the link is below. It will be more of the same, just hopefully better and more frequent. Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog over the years.

The end.

September - May

I like to look back at old sketchbooks and see how much I have improved/ learned over time. I like to take the same sketch and re-draw it to see how I would do it differently now. So in January I went back to September's sketchbook and re-drew a few sketches. Today (in May) I went back and drew them a third time. It's pretty cool to see them all together and see how I have (in my opinion) improved a ton. I have to admit that the earlier sketches make me feel embarrassed. I obviously needed more practice, so I have spent the last few months filling up sketchbooks full of heads since I really wanted to get more comfortable with drawing them. It's really helped me and it's neat to see how my style is forming.
