|Compelled to draw Aggie's demise despite tears and snot.|
Don’t be alarmed, it’s really me, posting to my nearly-defunct sketchblog to the delight of my 73 followers. It’s been Over a year since my last post, and perhaps you’ve wondered where I’ve been?
Exiting 2011, I wasn’t having fun doing comics or drawing, so I stopped. I was travelling a lot for my day job early 2012, and then in March, I had to put my poor dog Aggie to sleep. I was sad for some time, and as I emerged from this, my dad and I continued renovating my kitchen. This led to me refinishing furniture over the summer, and then designing & building furniture in the fall.
In that sense, I never stopped being productive or creative, and have emerged with some custom furniture commissions. Yay!
I also didn't attend a single comic book convention or festival in 2012. First time I had a con-free year in over a decade! I finally began to miss drawing, and I tried drawing a page or two on my half-finished "baby" OGN. It was awful! My line quality had gone to shit. I stopped page-drawing in lieu of practicing in my sketchbook.
As I was getting back up to speed, I decided to brush up my websites a bit (also unedited in 2012). Done. More soon. So here we go, my sketchblog goal is to catch up the entire year one month.
Let’s see how it plays out.
