Sketchdump #1

Some stuff from my little red sketchbook done during the year. I haven't had the chance to draw in it much since I've been home.

Illustration Post #1

During the past couple of months, my parents were remodeling our house. After staying pretty much the same since it was built in the 70's, except for some occasional coats of a slightly tinted white paint, they decided to go all out and pull up all the old carpets, parquet floor, and paint the walls a color you could actually notice. On top of that, they needed new art for the walls because the old stuff that was hanging didn't really belong any more.

So now they have two of my paintings up. This was kind a fun project for me. It's not one of the color schemes I'd usually use. Never been a fan of painting in browns. I also got to mess around with patterns and silver paint.

What surprised me most though is that these have actually been framed and hung up in a room where people will actually see them. Usually my stuff is put up on a ledge in the basement where only the family sees any of it.

And yeah, I'm aware I can't take decent photos. If anyone has tips on that kind of thing, they'd be appreciated.

You've got to start sooner or later, right?

Hey everyone.

I figured that eventually, I would need to start a blog for my illustration work, and I'm currently on vacation. So, what better time is there to start blogging, right?

From now on, when I get the chance, I'll upload my sketches and final pieces. Show my work process, and all that other stuff that people who draw for money do.

Now if I can start earning the money to go along with it, I just might be set.
