My Bio
I'm mainly a writer but have begun working increasingly upon my art this past year or so. I'm pretty much self-taught, so I'm not the best or most refined artist, but I do try to improve. I play with inks, pencils, charcoal, and watercolor paints mainly. Usually I draw what I love, which means lots of Tolkien art and art inspired by various books (English major here and a massive bookworm) and also some television shows. Oh, and Cabin Pressure because it is BRILLIANT.

I seem to be very into The Silmarillion right now. It happens.

I also post my art to tumblr, so you are welcome to find me there too. Thanks for stopping by :)

Hey all, just realized I haven't updated my journal in months, so I figured I'd fix that. You might have noticed I haven't been posting much art lately; mainly this is because my tablet conked out yet again and I don't have a scanner so while I still draw, I can only take low quality mobile photos of my art and I feel funny about uploading those to this account. I guess I might start doing that anyway though since the alternative is post nothing at all! The big news is I'm heading to London in April to compete at the Irish Dance World Championships which is basically the Olympics of Irish dance; it's the most prestigious competition in the I

Long time, no art

Long time, no art

Hi everyone, It's been a while! But I am happy to say that I am now graduated from college with a BA in English with Highest Honors, and have moved back to the mainland after five years in Hawaii. I will hopefully now be able to start posting more, since things are settling down mostly. I just found my watercolors today while unpacking things and it led to some scribblings, so that's a good start. For more frequent art updates, follow me on tumblr, where my username is abadpoetwithdreams. It's not an art blog per se, but I do post more sketches there than I do here, where I tend to post more finished pieces. Oh, and just a heads up, I have

I love your style of drawing. It is simple, but you capture characters so well.
No problem! Hopefully I can get back to drawing more Silmarillion characters soon :)
