2020 was such a year I forgot to post this here until now. So much has happened in the world and for us personally in the last year I don’t even know where to begin. Amidst the pandemic we bought our first house, lost both of my in-laws within 6 months of one another, started a new business, and everything in between. Considering all we’ve been through, I’m surprised I drew half this much last year. My primary art focuses in 2021 are more comics, dynamic figures, and painting backgrounds. Hope you’ll join me in what I hope will be a year of renewal and growth. Stay safe, follow public guidelines, and get vaccinated when you’re eligible to help protect those who can’t.
I’m not anywhere near where I wanna be but I’m optimistic about the journey. This was my first year selling at cons + producing a lot of different kinds of merch and I learned a lot. Looking forward to the lessons 2020 has for me.
I’m very critical of the things I make but this year I can actually see growth. I like how the colors get bolder and less cautious haha…this year I got a little less lazy w/ my compositions, next year I hope to focus even more on story-telling and more dynamic illustration.
The support I’ve received this year alone is also humbling and overwhelming. Thank you all for a great year and I hope to have your support in 2020 🙂
Art wasn’t as huge a focus this year after getting engaged, married, moving, and changing jobs twice. That said, there’re a few WIP’s and teasers from illustration projects slipped in here to fill in the gaps, but it’s nice to be able to look back from an extremely busy year and still see artwork getting done.
