Artist // Hobbyist // Traditional Art
My Bio
I started in earnest with art when I was around 13. I first began as a traditional media artist, but have found at least one foot now in photography; the other has stepped into digital art for a while but now is back getting dirty in graphite. I've been working in pencil and paint and photoshop (and everything else you can imagine) with some periods of my life very, very productive, and others (ahem, right now), not so much.

I enjoy underexposure, getting very dirty, and finding beauty wherever I am. Until 2006 I was primarily interested in traditional, realistic art (especially painting), but after the opening of MOCADetroit I became much more interested in contemporary artists and thinking about what is possible.

one more hiatus
I realized from looking on here that I basically haven't done regular drawing or painting in 2.5 years. That's bad. I see that in the past I had monthly projects. Maybe I can start a new one! If you have suggestions I'd love to hear them. I really need some structure. I might go back to drawing from a magazine every day. I have 2 paintings I'm working on too, so I need to get on that.

June project
Moving on to June, I have a new project for myself. I'm drawing a quick sketch from photo reference, from the million magazines I have laying around for just this purpose, one per day. Because they're all quick sketches, I'm not uploading them here unless they're great - a first in my "daily drawing" projects, because no matter how bad all the drawings I did before this were, I wanted the accountability of having to publish here daily. Now the challenge, along with drawing every day, is to keep it up just for myself and to make sure I draw one thing per day even though, or especially because, I'm generally throwing out the sketches after I do

May = hands
I'm starting a new monthly drawing project, because I realized that otherwise it's very easy to slack off on drawing something every day. So the month of May is all about drawing HANDS. Because I don't have a lot of free time, it's going to be quick contour drawings of hands. That means a lot of bad drawings using a Sharpie marker. :D I'm not sure how many I'll post on here, because they're going to be awful, but maybe my scraps will start to fill up now if I can get myself to keep up with scanning things. Wish me luck! June is going to be fabric, and that's when I'm really going to lose my soul. HARD HARD HARD.

Seeing your art again gave me flashbacks to our FAML days.

I don't mean you haven't developed since then, just that your style is recognizable and makes me a bit nostalgic. :)
