Part of the art journey is branching out and trying out different techniques and styles. I personally feel like I haven’t found the style I want to work with, that I’m also efficient with. I am constantly inspired by other artists, new and old, and I always want to try new things.
I know I rush a lot of my artwork, and it’s one of the reasons why I’m not particularly proud of the end result. I think I do much better when I take time with the piece. For my original sketch “Daughter of the Sea“, it was a loose sketch that took about 5 or so hours. I’ve always liked […]

I’m actually suffering from pretty severe back pain right now, which probably happened a day or two after a bike ride home. I don’t know. In any case, I’m stuck on the couch and it’s hard for me to walk. Fortunately, I’ve got some time off, which I was supposed to use to enjoy this summer. Â Oh well.
