Hello everyone!

As promised, here is your Wednesday post! 🙂

Today I would like to to share the finished version of a piece that I posted quite a while back. Those of you who checked out my updated portfolio might have noticed it already. It’s Kennedy’s portrait!

Conquering San Franscisco

It’s been months since I’ve talked about this piece but don’t think I’ve just tossed it aside! In fact, it was part of the batch submitted for my portfolio review. I am also glad to say that it has officially been gifted to Kennedy and she is full on godzilla-status in a new home. As always, criticism and critique are always welcome. And for those of you who missed it last time, feel free to check out Kennedy’s tumblr here.

 

 

End of Hiatus!

Hello everyone!

SO. As you all might’ve noticed, I had taken quite the hiatus from blogging over the summer. I’m afraid to say, my classes got the best of me and I just needed some time off to focus. But it all paid off as I am happy to announce I am now officially admitted to ASU’s Drawing Program! So don’t think I’ve forgotten you guys! If you’d like to see some of the pieces I’ve been working on these past few months, please check out my portfolio linked on the right side of the page or click here!

I will definitely be working towards posting more regularly. Right now, the plan is to resume the schedule that I promised you guys before so stay tuned for more to come every Monday, Wednesday and Friday! 🙂
