Hope you all had a great Christmas and new years!! It has been a crazy.. somewhat stressful.. somewhat eventful month. My drawing tablet crapped out on me.. We at one point thought that we would have to find a new place to live.. thankfully that wasn't the case! We had to get a new vehicle.. which was bitter-sweet.. and of course there were the holidays to prep for.. which I always have fun with.. but Whew!! As a result.. not a whole lot happened for me artistically this month. That's OK though! I am ready to get back to work.. I will keep you all posted on upcoming plans and events! 
P.S. I did make a brewing company logo for my brother in law's future dream brewery as part of his Christmas gift!! #newyearnewstart #newyearnewme #backtowork #art #artist #artistnews # #artistsofinstagram #artistproblems #logo #logodesinger #brewery #breweryart #brew #craftbrew #craftbeer #graphicdesign #graphicart #digitalart #digitaldesign #michigan #michiganartist #michiganart #michiganbrew
Look what came in the mail today!! A few weeks ago I won this set of 12 watercolor brush pens from Craftamo.. here's a little review:
 I like them so far! These are the first actual bristled brush pens that I have used. I liked the line width variation that I could achieve with these pens. My only issue with them, that wasn't even a huge issue, was that there were stray bristles on some pens that stuck out a little longer than the rest.. easy fix.. I just barely trimmed them back to be even with the rest. No big deal.. If you scroll through these pictures, you'll see that I did a color swatch test in my Stillman & Birn, beta series sketchbook. The colors are so vibrant! I found that for some colors, the pigment soaked in and stained the paper a little more than others.. so, it took a little bit more water and light "scrubbing" with my paint brush for the stain to go away and to achieve an even gradient. However, this same thing happened with the other water soluble markers that I have used too.. so that may be common for this type of marker.
I also love that these came with stickers!! <3 perfect addition to the cover of my sketchbook.. even though I just realized that it's upside-down.. Over all I am very happy with them!

Day  23 of Inktober: Juicy

Pineapple. Spikey and sharp on the outside.. juicy and sweet on the inside! :D

Though it's fruit is one of the juiciest, sought after flavors, obtaining it is not without it's risks." If you like what I do, you can find behind the scenes content on Patreon!
