Today I read through several days worth of Leah’s Art Every Day Month Survival Guide, and combined several prompts into today’s art session: 1. Finish, or recycle, abandoned pieces: I cut up old some inkblot portraits that I’d never been happy with so that they were completely unrecognizable. 2. Work small: These are all 3″ […]

I was planning to go to a Día de los Muertos celebration with some friends today, and was thinking about my dear grandmother Nellie who died a few months ago as I doodled this calavera. […]
Don’t hire me…if keeping costs down is your primary concern. My rates aren’t the highest in the industry, but they’re not the lowest either.
