Journal History

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
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 took an involuntary hiatus from art from 2003-2007. I now am trying to recultivate the habit of craft through drawing and photography and creative writing.

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. I am also borderline-obsessed with botanical and medical illustration in all media and from all periods.

My favorite subject for all art is trees but my environment often doesn't allow for their images to be made. I get accused of urban decay photography but it's just what's in front of me. I work primarily in graphite, charcoal, white chalk, ink, and sharpie marker.

Sadly, some large portions of my older art (including an entire 4-issue comic) were lost to a hard drive crash some years ago. Life goes on, but there are big holes in what should be here.
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.

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. :)

Hello Molly!
Now I'm trying to figure out how you found my livejournal...

The internet is confusing. I suppose that's why I'm at SI, to learn how to make it less so by judicious application of searches?

I found it through Rachel, who found me... somehow. I forget what that connection was. :)
