I enjoy watching The Murdoch Mysteries (“The Artful Detective” to the Yanks). It’s not gritty or realistic or overly dramatic, but it’s well-done, the characters are interesting and it’s entertaining over all. Much of the appeal for me is also that it’s set in Victorian/Edwardian era Toronto.
Fast sketch for a Sunday morning. By the way, I have a tumblr that I feel like I should be using a little better.
I have noticed one thing I don’t really do, or at least post about: my sketches. This blog, being about my personal art progress, lacks records of me actually practicing. Admittedly, I rounding out my drawings with more finished lines, colour and shading and I like showing off those. I do sketch, but they are more like doodles and to me, it’s kind of embarrassing to show off. See, I’m still comparing myself to every other artist out there.
I’ve finally jumped on this train and opened up shop with both Redbubble and Society6. Maybe I just wanted to see my art on tote bags (because I love tote bags!).
Part of my plans for 2017 is to producing more print-ready artwork, which would force me to refine my work. This is a first step. There will be definitely more incoming.
