Keep Those You Love Close

My drawings may start off as circles and scribbles, but eventually start to take form. – moi

This weekend I listened to this podcast on Pencil Kings featuring Fantasy Artist, Iris Compiet. She shared she challenged herself to draw every day for five years! Her work is amazing and she is now drawing and creating a book of her own drawings.

After nine months, I can tell I’m getting better at this. When I see something in my mind I can draw it out easier compared to before I had a difficult time drawing from my imagination and relied heavily on references.

After trying a couple of mediums I think digital art and polymer clay are my most favorite mediums. Still lots to learn.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful night!

Today is my One Year Wedding Anniversary! We’ve been together for over ten years, but today is extra special because it was when we got Civil Unioned, when we got married in our favorite video game Final Fantasy XIV, and officially like in real life marriage!

My favorite photo of us was my inspiration.

Me and John

John said I made him so masculine! I told him when I draw him he typically ends up more square and edgy. My character is more round and curvy.

Instead of drawing out the photo behind us I thought it would be cool to add the original photo into my drawing – ARTCEPTION!

I love you, John. Thank you for always being so supportive, taking care of me, bringing me food and surprise desserts, the way your hands make me feel, being a wonderful dad to our boys, and for dealing with my Colorado weather personality. You are the most wonderful husband and I’m so happy. ❤

Thanks for reading everyone.
