We Were in the paper

The creative aging class that was funded by a grant concluded with a nice little art show at our local library. All the students had their pencil drawings on display and the turnout was very good. The ladies at the library (Dianne, Jes, and Carol) did a really nice job of organizing the entire project.

I also worked on a pencil drawing but on my own time. This was for a young lady who just had her first baby. I had done a portrait for her mom when she was just a baby so now she wanted one.

In other news, I created another mannequin model. This one is a little smaller than the Skelaquins and it is a basic shape mannequin.

I have started working on a Patreon page to house art instruction videos and helpful content for people wanting to learn more about drawing and painting. It will be a subscription-based service. And its super reasonable. Pay $15 and peruse as much content as you want. Then if it’s not beneficial anymore, cancel at anytime. It could be cool. I still need to get more content created before it can be useful to anyone.

And the last bit of exciting news is that I just published a new book on anatomy and character drawing!
