I plan to add few more features in the future, but it is ready to be seen. Browse around and let me know what you think.

Life Drawing

While I work on longer projects, I try to get away and keep myself fresh. My favorite way to do this is to draw from life. I'm not thinking of continuity, story or capturing every detail. I am trying to capture the life of a moment in a quick, loose sketch.

To do this, I will sit down and really just soak in the world around me. I don't start drawing until something catches my eye, be it a color, shape, gesture, or movement. Then, after observing it and really assessing what is special about it, I'll put pencil to paper. A big part of this is actually just paying attention to what is happening around me. All too often, we speed through life and rush past beauty in all forms. Taking a moment to appreciate an interesting moment reveals a deeper truth behind the world we live in and points to the beauty of creation.

The coolest part is that every person sees beauty in different areas. While our interests may overlap, your eye will pick up unique things that I would never notice. This is what fosters community in art. Everyone enjoys learning what another person values, and we celebrate a person who can display that visually. That is why we go to art galleries or pause and crane our necks on our tip-toes to see what that kid with the sketchbook is drawing, because we are curious.

I find this type of life drawing much more rewarding than the intense study of light and form. There is a place for that in my work, but doing these sketches more like a quick blurb of life than a thesis paper. Here are a few of my recent life drawings. I hope you enjoy! I would also encourage you to grab a sketch pad and try the same. Remember that it isn't about the drawing, it is about enjoying the moment. 

Web Site: Coming Soon

Hey everyone!

Here is a header image I made for the group blog Scribbled Eggs N Bacon that I am a part of. It is a fun way for several of my friends and I to keep up with each other's work. Feel free to head over and take a look!

In other news, I have been working on my official web site, and it is almost finished. I am fine-tuning the presentation and making sure everything works. Look for the official link in a future blog post. My work is going great, but I still cannot show a majority of what I am working on. I'll do my best to keep updating this blog with sketches and personal pieces that I complete. In the future, look forward to life drawings, comics, and more personal paintings. Thanks for viewing!


Here is a test drawing where I was exploring color and texture. Enjoy!
