It's been more than a year since I last updated my journal, and about the same amount of time since I uploaded anything. Since I treat drawing as a hobby (albeit an important one), life and more pressing concerns has displaced it, especially with regard to DA. Not my preference, but I accept it.
Still drawing plenty, on a daily basis, but rationing my time investment insofar as possible.
Nonetheless, uploaded a few pieces of varying age which I'd been meaning to recently, hope you like and that the next batch will be done in shorter order.
As for where my art is going, stylistically it's becoming less abstract, though I still do love me some abstract. In terms of materials, I've deliberately opted to use more indian ink for reasons of quality and posterity. The indian ink I use has beautiful, vivid colours, even though the palette is somewhat limited, and the black (which remains the most important part of anything I draw) remains excellent. But the real kicker is, the indian ink I use is very light-fast. Alot of my older drawings done with other types of ink are showing their age from having been on display for so long, but those done with mostly indian ink look almost as fresh as the day I finished em. Since I believe strongly that good, complete artwork that one is proud of should be displayed in good lighting, this is important to me.
