It’s been Awhile

It’s been awhile.

I took a little break from publishing posts here after the hustle of posting all the time last year. Last time I picked three words for the year: Make, Move, & Empower. I still plan to give this blog better organization and a layout update. I’ve been hustling at some other projects. One of the reasons why I didn’t want to have a daily habit this year is that it prioritizes quantity over quality. The exception to this is my drawing habit because I really want to improve at drawing humans and animals. I’m replacing most of my daily habits with larger scale and longer projects. They are now weekly based rather than daily allowing for me to give attention to detail and improve the quality.

Additionally, with the upcoming blog layout update, I want to change the theme of this blog. It’s not going far off from 2016. I started this with the intention of improving my storytelling ability, but it became an art blog. I posted more artistic process and inspirational pieces than stories last year. I don’t remember if I officially declared the shift in focus during 2016, but I am for 2017. More quality content will be heading your way as a result. I have a few articles that I didn’t get to during 2016 that I’ll have up next week and then I’m planning out a content calendar.

Plans are to update Monday & Fridays. Mondays I’ll leave as more fun and informative art posts while Fridays are inspiration and freebies for myself. Additionally, follow me on Twitter for full updates on other projects. I’m plunging into the illustration world by creating a motion comic based on a story I’ve had in my head for what feels like forever! It’s the same one that I’ve tried to write for NaNoWriMo. If anyone followed through the year and remembers me drawing random character designs or my character’s house, that’s the same story. I decided to take it on in a new medium. That gets updated every Tuesday & Thursday. Wednesdays are lettering days. I’m leaving weekends free for fun!

Schedule:

Mondays & Fridays: Blog Post Here!
Tuesdays & Thursdays: Motion Comic over on Tumblr!
Wednesday: Lettering! Here

Once again, check out my twitter if you want to see any updates and a bunch of figure drawing art I’ve been practicing! My Instagram also gets the occasional update or throwback art.

Thanks for reading! Updates soon!

Animation Inspiration 31

So…I technically did 5/30 days of motion, but honestly it’s so lame I’m not deeming it worthy of the title of day five. I’m super tired so I’m going to bed and plan to regroup for a weekend double up of gifs for tomorrow. I’m all for consistency in posting every day, but I do hold myself to a certain expectation, and this is not meeting it. If I wasn’t so tired I’d probably stay up and continue working on something worthy of calling day 5, but alas I am. So I give you Animation Inspiration instead.

Of Stars and Alligators

Cute quick piece. I love the lettering and watching the fire.
