I did it!

When I originally started my sketchblog in 2008, I planned to post once a week. The reality was, more or less, I posted weekly plus a few extra, ending up at 60 posts per year in 2008 and 2011, and 75 in 2009 and 2010.

After a rough 2012, in an effort to kickstart my comics again, and practice a bit before I continued tackling pages of comic art, I gave my web-site and social media a mini overhaul, and set a goal to finalize sketches I had been drawing throughout 2012, plus new ones—and post a year's worth of actual entries in one month.

It's 12/31/12, and I am very proud to say without any cheater entries, I have met my goal. Yay!

Next up in 2013, I will resume posting here once a week (ish). As for actual comics, I'm not sure if I will continue/finish "baby makes three," continue working on my S/LSH fanfic, or pursue another project. At the end of the day, I will only pursue what makes me happy, as creating comics has become fun again.

Along the way, I have a few pieces of commissioned furniture to make, and I have the top of a dresser to refinish. I've been looking at dog rescue societies, too, keeping my eye out for one screened as "needs a quiet home" and not one that "needs to be around other pets" or "needs a yard."

Oh—today's sketch is a self-portrait in pencil. No, I do not look like that. 

Happy New Year.

Not channeling...just started out in pencil (as opposed to my usual blue pencil) so I could do more dark-light stuff to draw the shirt I bought in E'burgh. :-D

I can't wait to see your examples of how your handwriting has evolved! I am obsessed with the different forms that handwriting takes. I love collecting old postcards just to see the writing..
