I don’t think it’s at all a coincidence that creative-types are frequently people-pleasers. All art is is an extension of oneself, put on a platter, and thrown to the wolves.

It's been a very, very long time

I posted a few things a week ago or so, but other than that, I've been off the grid for what looks like a year-and-a-half.  I'll try to catch everyone with the art you've missed as best I can.  Stay tuned!
Long time no post!  Here's a sneak peek at something I'm working on... #artwork #drawing #digitalpainting #digitalart #faceportrait #portrait #painting #photoshop #wacom #workinprogress 
Thanks for the shout, Jay!  Glad it's paying off! https://www.deviantart.com/artfromsound/status-update/207874
