Being just a sketch, there is a lot of give and take for this piece. I personally prefer sketchy work/art over finished. The thing that...

6 selected pages from vol 1 of my graphic novel "Mallory"
Year of the Rabbit
Illustration based on the Chinese Zodiac, Year of the Rabbit. Illustration measures roughly 9"x14", and is a mixed media composed of hand-painted designs and cut paper, along with watercolor, acrylic, and ink.
Hey all,
long time no see. I'm back for another revival attempt, and a pretty ambitious attempt at that. This time I mean business though.

A little over a year ago, I had released a project, "Walking Steady on My Own Two Feet" (which you can see over at my blog) where I had attempted to be very open with my sketchbook. Normally I am a very shy person when it comes to my sketchbooks, so this was a "coming out" sort of thing. I had intended to discard my shyness and be completely open with everything that I drew. Well, looking back on what I had "unveiled" with my project, I realize now I had so many shortcomings with the project, and only uploaded a few dozen images out of the literal 100 pages I had to share with everyone. I was concerned of showing off the best of me, and not all of me.

I can't help but be honest though, because of a rough couple of years with my art, I was honestly very afraid to show off the subject matter that often lands in my sketchbook. I haven't quite discarded a few nasty memories during such an impressionable time of my life. I was afraid of what you guys, my few friends/followers may think of me, and what you may label me after seeing what I draw behind the scenes. Going along with that train of thought, I don't want to put anything on any form of social media that someone may use to damage my reputation.

But here I am! And here's the interesting part of my revived presence online! I have crafted a gameplan! I will, once a week, post 4 pieces of artwork! I have art up and ready to go from up to 3 years ago! Well over 700 images, ranging from little doodles on scraps of paper, to sketchbook poops, tablet/digital doodles & paintings, to fully traditional artworks. All that will eventually see the light of social media! To make things even more interesting, all the sites that I maintain, this Blog, to my DeviantArt account, my Tumblr, and my Facebook, will have a different piece of art posted on them each week! I don't know if they will all get updated the same day, or if each day of the week will be committed to a different site, but we shall see how it goes! But that is the gyst of it!

I do appreciate how DA allows you to label Mature Content, so alot of my uber raunchy stuff will probably land here, as you need an account to view it. I feel that this is a good safeguard for those individuals who get handed my card who would not appreciate getting blindsided with sexual/naughty/nude stuff.

Please feel free to find me on any of these sites! And please feel even more free to follow me!
