Dear Viewers,

I just wanted to give you a brief update on how things are going in my penultimate semester at college. So far, I've reached the 6 week mark in this season. It's been eating up more time than originally expected.

Busy is the best word to describe this time: cleaning, fixing, and upgrading my home office and workspace for my internship. What I came into was basically an empty shell, so I have been buying equipment and materials to make my life on the job easier. I purchased hardware, fixtures, a whiteboard, an erasable calendar, tape dispenser, and a number of other small tools to bring it to a more productive level. The work I have been producing on the job has generally been better quality than the work I previously produced for class, and things seem to be trending in the right direction.

I've also made a number of investments in improving my workflow and productivity for this final year. They include: buying more RAM for my laptop, purchasing new equipment and textbooks, getting a 1-year subscription to ImagineFX, and working out plans to buy a new tablet with drawing capabilities. The plan is to complement this with a few new videos from CtrlPaint to augment my library. I plan on working through these instructionals in my time next summer season.

I also knocked out a couple of firsts. I went to Lion Con, a local art, geek culture, and fandom convention for the first time this September. It was good to see and support local artists. I reached out to a number of them and connected on social media. My wife and I also bought some of their merchandise, which was really well made. I made some mental notes about how the booths were set up and am actively putting together a plan for next year's event.

On September 30th, I went to my first Twins game at Target Field on September 30th. I saw the game with my wife, my sister, and brother-in-law. We strongly believed it was Joe Mauer's last game. As a lifelong fan, it was good to see an icon like him be honored for his achievements and contributions to baseball. He hit a memorable double and received several standing ovations over the course of the game. It hit me right in the childhood.

Things have started well with InkTober. I am still working through my self made list of prompts. (full list below)

InkTober 2018 is on pause until Winter Break (December 14th). I will resume and complete InkTober as it was scheduled then and post all of these drawings to DeviantArt FIRST. Please visit my Twitter or Instagram feeds for full details. Thank you all for your patience, I deeply apologize for the wait. I am severely overbooked this semester.

Thanks again to my watchers, old and new, for your unwavering support. Without your responses, not much of what I've done would be possible. So, keep commenting, favouriting, and sharing my work. I love you all!

Cheers,

I'm a fourth year graphic design student at SCSU. I am a newly-minted professional artist, and graphic designer in training at a design company. I strive to always be learning my craft. I work with multiple mediums to create compelling works in various genres. I keep my art as free as possible because I like giving back to the DeviantArt community. My goal is to become an accomplished and successful artist. I try to make art that expresses how I feel about life and what I believe in. I am working hard to be the best I can be as an artist and a human being.

‎"I may not get you to be an artist. I may not change you a heck of a lot. But if I can get you to think... That means the world to me, and I mean it." -Me
