Generally I eschew New Year's resolutions because I find them pedantic. If I feel a need to improve in a certain area, then I do it without waiting for something like New Years to give me a push. However, this year I've been given some news about my health which forced me to make some lifestyle changes. This just happens to coincide with the new year, and so I've taken this opportunity to light a fire under my own butt, so to speak. So I'm eating better, exercising every day, and adding a minimum 1/2 of hour drawing practice to each day's routine to work on target areas where I know I need some improvement. I've also begun posting some of these practice sheets in my Sketches folder because I find that if I have something to show for it, then I'm much more likely to follow through. Also, it will give me a metric to visualize my  progress and see where I'm improving and still in need of more work. Most of these will be rapid figure drawings, but there will be other subjects as well.

The better diet and increase in physical activity seem to have gotten my brain functioning better because the creative juices seem to be flowing more, so expect to see more original works as well s a return to my Lovecraft Bestiary project.

Having been a traditional artist specializing in expressionist, abstract, and illustrative styles, I have quite recently branched into digital illustration and conceptual art. The computer offers me a great deal in flexibility, convenience, and speed in these genres, while I still prefer traditional mediums for most of my expressive and abstract work. Most of my traditional paintings will not be posted here, as I have other venues for this sort of work.

I wish you a happy birthday and NOTHING ELSE on this day. Just your birthday.

Has it been a bit#& growing up with your day on a national holiday or rather were you always happy that you share your birthday with the country, having the whole country doing 'Party BBQ' on the same day???
