I have new artwork to post! I started this piece in November, intending to use it as my holiday card or New Year, but life and work got in the way and I just didn’t have time to finish it.
This piece is entirely digital – I usually finish the line art in traditional ink, but I just wasn’t getting the look I wanted with traditional media, so I ended up inking in Photoshop. It’s a much slower process, which is the main reason I don’t do that very often!
Not much new to report…I’ve had personal art I wanted to work on, but the end of the year was busy with a lot of graphic design work, and then I spent most of January with daily migraines. My doctor had me switch one of my medications, and things have been improving. Compared to doing practically nothing last month, February has already been much more successful. Even picked up a new project – I’m working on a CD cover for a local band.
I’ve also decided to get a tattoo, because I’ve finally decided what to get, and I found a tattoo artist whose work I really love. I wanted to have the tattoo artist design the tattoo…I could draw it myself, but I’m hypercritical about my own work, and everything I’ve come up with so far just wasn’t right. So I’m handing the task over to Nick Chaboya at Seventh Son Tattoo. My first appointment is in June, and I’m really excited about it.
