Scanned and colored my latest ink sketch in photoshop. Yup, no easy way to get back up to drawing steam, just got to keep drawing, and making mistakes and relearning past lessons.

Saying "Hello" again to pencil, Ink and Bristol

Got my hands smudgy with cheap ink and bristol after WAy too long. Here's a warmup with a cartoony THOR! And here's me trying to get back in cleaner tighter mode (a la my early BILLY COLE work) for a sketchbook I'm putting together. It was pretty friggin' tough getting clean again, Man sometimes I feel like I'm gettin' too old for this stuff! But then I remind myself that I can just "Feel too old" after I'm dead.
In answer to his question, Nope We're not done yet!

Sometimes it's good to just draw. Focusing on an art career takes dogged determination and discipline and sometimes it's easy to feel compelled to only draw what's practical and useful for your career. I find myself thinking this more often than not, but sometimes... Sometimes I remember why I started drawing, I remember how much I enjoyed expressing myself with pencil and paper and ink. I remember how much I like the feel of scratching letters on paper with a bowl pointed nib or unloading a big watercolor brush full of black ink on a clean white sheet of bristol board. Sometimes it's nice to look at a new sheet of paper and see its emptiness as your opportunity to be yourself and say anything you feel or fear or want. Knowing there's a place you can be truly free to express yourself is empowering. So, like I said sometimes it's good to just draw.
