Future Achievements of 2017

I have a friend who made the most beautiful comment on 2016 and the new year.  I won't copy it word-for-word because it was a very personal comment loaded with personal things that were not written for me to repeat to the world.  To paraphrase, 2016 was an interesting year filled with new experiences.  Her… Continue reading Future Achievements of 2017

Photography A-1

With my fourth year of already begun, I was excitedly nervous.  Excited for graduation in a few months time, as well as for my defence of my undergraduate thesis, among other things.  Nervous for all of the crazy electives I was taking - guys, don't take 4th year chemistry classes as "fun electives," and DON'T… Continue reading Photography A-1

Thoughts & Speech Art

This is a little painting I did from a really crap feeling.  It's a pretty strange feeling to articulate into words, so I'm not too sure I can explain my original "meaning" of this.  Shortly, it has to do with thoughts and speech; but I'll let you pull your own concept together for it, I'm curious as to… Continue reading Thoughts & Speech Art

Original Art & Lily Collins

This weekend, when I wasn't watching the final episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood with my own brother, I was creating art.  I'd purchased a mixed media art pad (6x8in, 15 pages) of Strathmore paper with the intent of making some nice finished pieces for my room to frame.  I decided to test it out with the… Continue reading Original Art & Lily Collins

1000 Anatomy Sketches; Batch 1

New Prismacolors – and artwork!

Prismacolor Premier Coloured Pencils The reason I needed to make some art purchases was to replace the Eagle and Berol Scholar colours I'd shortened with some new Premier… Continue reading New Prismacolors – and artwork!
