Hello! I think I figured out what the composition is going to look like, roughly speaking, for one of the boreal owls I want to draw. I didn’t really like the face of the last owl I posted, so I gave it a different face. The white vertical lines are just place holders. I wantContinue reading
I finally finished this drawing last Saturday. I can’t seem to get ahead at all when it comes to art. Life keeps happening to me. Good things, bad things, and all the things in between good and bad. Just keeps happening to me. Those spaces of time I used to devote to creating art haveContinue 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 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.

Another graphite drawing of a deer. Lately, I’ve been thinking about what direction to go in with the deer art and have landed on the idea of doing a series of graphite drawings. Or at least I think. I change my mind a lot. I’ve just been longing to put something together that feels cohesiveContinue reading
I’m all done with this drawing! I actually finished it a few days ago, but ended up noticing some issues with one of the bones that I’d been wanting to touch up and fix, so I did that today. I’ve got a number of deer sketches in progress, both for potential paintings and drawings. I’mContinue reading
