Nothing Lasts Forever

I've been posting to this blog since 2008 and I have enjoyed it immensely, but the internet seems to have moved on to other modes of communication. I really appreciate everyone who has come here to look at and comment on my drawings. You are all welcome to follow me on Instagram at Revenge of the Pencil signing off.

30 Drawings in 30 Days

The amazing people at the Seattle Artist League ran a daily drawing exercise throughout the month of January. Much to my own surprise, I did stick with it and did all 30. I wasn't always happy with the results, but I did learn something from all of them and I am very grateful to the good people at SAL for putting it all together. Here are a few selections:
Day 1: 15-minute self-portrait
Day 3: Automatic Drawing - Put pen to paper and watch what happens
Day 12: Combine features from different species and invent a new animal
Day 15: Draw the body as a vessel
Day 23: Draw something that completes an existing scene
Day 27: Draw a self portrait with something fabulously distracting on your head
Day 28: Draw a rooster, for New Year
