My poor blog I can tell has been collecting dust. These last few weeks have been somewhat crazy. On September 15th, a tiny wound on the back of my hand became infected. The infection seemed miniscule. I thought, “oh, I’ll just get some presciption level ointment, and it’ll pass.” But actually, it didn’t. It becameContinue reading

Hello! The St. Louis Park Art Fair went amazing! I truly couldn’t have wished for a better experience. It exceeded every expectation and even hope I had. I am so, so grateful to have been able to participate and meet and talk with so many wonderful artists and visitors. =) This was the first timeContinue reading

So yesterday I decided to take all the furniture out of my living room and set up a “rough draft” of my art fair display in there. Will say it was some sweaty work and today I am so, so sore and tired… But I am happy to have done it because now I haveContinue reading

Hey, things have been alright. I’m busy, but in a way that has been highly enjoyable. I’ve spent nearly every day this last week working nonstop on things I want to display and sell at the art fair in September. I’m thinking my main focus for that fair will be art prints, original artwork, zines,Continue reading

Hello. I’m all done with this drawing now. It’s drawing #7 of what’s going to be a large amount of drawings (don’t know the exact number yet) for the Taiga Series. I’m feeling pretty tired from working on it, ha. Like I kinda feel like I just got run over by a truck. As muchContinue reading

Finally got the whole composition filled in. I’m still in the early stages of this, though, as one might be able to discern due to how underworked the values are. While there will be a lot of hard whites and blacks in this piece, there certainly won’t be this much. Or at least that isContinue reading

Here’s a progress shot of where I’m at with my next drawing. (It’s cropped – it’s bigger than what is visible here.) I’m not too far, but farther than I thought I would be, as I’ve been somewhat distracted as of late. Outside has been an inferno. I’ve spent the last two weeks avoiding theContinue reading

Well it’s all done. The crying highland cow. I didn’t get done with this as quickly as I hoped, but that’s alright. Sometimes things take longer than expected. Sometimes things are more complicated than expected. Sometimes the creative journey is filled with mountains, not just fields. Either way, it’s all still fun. Like really fun.Continue reading

Here’s a progress shot of the commission drawing I am working on. I’m just beginning to make sense of the color scheme. It’s going to have predominately blue hues with purple, yellow, pink, and green hues scattered throughout, I’m thinking. Crossing my fingers nothing goes wrong. Unfortunately, if something does, I’ll have to start overContinue reading

Here’s my 6th drawing for the taiga series. It’s titled “Moonlight Watcher” and is a graphite drawing based off the lynx I saw at the Minnesota Zoo. I had so much fun doing this. It felt refreshing to draw an animal that isn’t a deer, haha. While I absolutely adore deer, I realize I hadContinue reading
