It's been almost 2 months since my last blog post, I know. The husband and I just moved, and the house is still in boxes, and a few rooms are still in need of painting. My studio is one of the rooms that is still in pieces, and I can't wait until everything is back together.
In the mean time, let me share a few of the illustration-related podcasts I've been listening to during this process of moving and renovations:
Which was awesome. And sunny, unlike where I live. But, it's back to the real world. I don't have any finished work to show right now, but I've been working to get some drawings done for a few self generated portfolio pieces.

But it's getting close. This is just a cropped section.
I've been doing lots of sketching lately and less painting, and it's been a refreshing change of pace. As you can see here, I've been doing some studies of horses from animal anatomy books and other references. Fun!
I am really very excited right now. I gave this piece a bit of much needed digital therapy, and created a piece that I am very happy with! If you'll look here at the original version of the piece, you will see what I mean. It's a vast improvement, and I think it is good that I took a couple of months without looking at if for a while. I was able to come back to it with a whole new perspective, and now I can use it as a portfolio piece.
