Last night I was talking with a friend about my drawing. During the conversation I began to form an idea in my head for another drawing. Later when I tried to go to sleep I kept on thinking about the drawing. Usually when I think about a drawing I want to do I just get a basic idea. But this was down to the last detail. Like the reflection of light off of a piece of metal, for example.
What sucks is that I was supposed to do a portrait for a friend of mine. It's a drawing I really… Continue

3 years ago I was drawing constantly. Sometimes from my head and sometimes from pictures. I put my heart and soul into each and every drawing.
The last drawing that year that I worked on was of my two children. It was done from my favorite picture of them. They were both sitting on the grass. My daughter was a year old and my son was 5. The look he gave her was so full of love that I just had to capture it.
For 3 days I worked on that drawing. I took my time and it was… Continue
