Saying goodbye is never easy...

Yesterday marked a very sad day in our household.  We had to say goodbye to a very good friend and the best cat I have ever had.  Her name was Popcorn and she was an absolute sweetheart.  She saw me through a lot of really hard times over the past 11 years and will be greatly missed.  

Rest in peace my sweet little kitten.  You brought me more joy, love, and happiness than you could ever know.  Thank you.

Aug 01 2014 2.0 has been released!

As promised...  the recently re-designed is live! Built from the ground up with responsiveness in mind, running the latest version of DotNetNuke with a freshly upgraded blog module, all nicely snuggled together on Windows Azure!  It's been a lot of hard work and a few late nights, but I am pleased with the results and hope that you enjoy them as well.  Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts.

Oh...  and have a look around!  Check out the site on your favorite mobile device.

New design coming very soon!

Yeah... it's been awhile.  I've been busy and I'll be happy to share more about that in the coming months.  For now, just know that I have been hard at work on a new design for I've still got a little more polishing and fine-tuning to do, but the site will be up very soon.

Year of Drawing COMPLETE

Yesterday marked the completion of an entire year of drawing the figure daily.  I used the Jerry Seinfeld method of productivity with the calendar to the right.  Every day I was able to draw, I placed a red x on the calendar.  Whether it was drawing through nearly a 104 fever, or waking up and drawing at 6:00 am, or drawing after driving for 10 hours... somehow, I managed to draw every day for the past year.

Year of Drawing The Legs

After much study, the legs are complete. There are a crazy number of muscles throughout the leg so a lot of effort was placed on anatomy and muscle structure. The feet are all that remain as I close out this full year of drawing.  I can almost see the finish line!

Year of Drawing Arms

The months of May and June were spent studying the arms.  A lot of time was spent on the anatomy of the arm and I can now easily tell you were your Extensor Carpi Radialis Longus is located!

Year of Drawing The Head

I'm happy to say that the small sampling of images above are a result of drawing every day for the first two months of the year. January and February were spent focusing on the head, neck, and facial features. A big thanks goes out to an extremely talented artist and teacher, Stan Prokopenko over at He's got some really great videos on the head and facial features that are definitely worth a look.
