Back again after another lengthy hiatus. As of late, I've been sketching a lot more and working on my own stuff. Don't get me wrong, inking is my true passion and has yet to feel like work as I still enjoy the process. However, it's been a nice change to actually do my own thing. My process simply is to go to a local watering hole, order a nice whiskey and sit and draw for hours on end. Amazingly, a number of people have found my work on Instagram, as I post my progress on their quite frequently, and have taken an interest. I was invited to participate in the RAWartists show here in Raleigh and actually sold quite a number prints and pieces (including a number of my inks). Through that opportunity, I have been asked to exhibit more of my art in our monthly First Friday art events that take place in all of downtown Raleigh and as well as having my art sold in number of retail stores. Definitely not trying to boast, but I am very much grateful and excited for these opportunities. Most of my reputation has been built on "inking," and it's hard to take a lot of credit when you "ink" other people's work. It's a nice change to get recognition on my own original art. Anyways, like an dumbass, I have neglected to share these sketches on DA. So I will be posting a few periodically.
