The light at the end of the tunnel isn't so dim. I'm keeping myself busy with good tunes, good ink, and an endless amount of heart. I am hoping thats enough. Here are some sketches and warm ups from the past week or so. There is more but I will have to show case that another time. I am excited about this project I can't show or talk about at the moment. Everything comes in good time. I'm learning what patience really is. Hope you guys stick around for the aftermath, but until then be easy and thanks for stopping by.

In all my four years of art training you would think I would understand the value of a dollar. That is beside the point of the today's sharing. Like I have said before, to those who follow my blog, I am just beginning to understand color, color combinations, and most importantly photoshop. I started a piece a week or so ago and saw that I didn't finish it(not new for me). However, I finally was able to use a scanner which surprising inspired me to finish the project. I wanted to make something "fun" and "clean". I stress clean and fun because these are things I am not known for. I tend to get ink all over my finger tips and some how manage to avoid hospital visits from the ink fights I get myself into, which leads to dark and sometimes uncanny images. Along side this personal project of mine I have noticed that the work that I get now is more demanding of fluidity, but not the usual crash, boom, tada, that I usually perform which is mainly self-propelled by instinctual mark making (which is a elaborate way of saying I don't know what I am doing most of the time). At first I was put off by the idea that I am changing it up so early out of college, but then I realized that I could use some verity, and this is the hard part to me about freelance thus far: Trying to find the motivational part of a project that might not seem so enthusiastic. Do I have the answer? heck no! haha! But while I try to figure it out a sugar free answer I hope you enjoy my update.
This image is in progress (Hint: The one I didn't finish). These are just a couple of close ups. Thanks for stoppin' by and reading my ramble! be easy amigos!

A promise is a promise. I decided that since my freelance demands what I usually post, I would work and post things that feel different from what I get paid to do. I have rediscovered my sketchbook by-the-way. Hope you like what you see! There will be more to post. Maybe tomorrow? Thanks for stoppin by
