This post is belated, but better late than never, right? Moving forward, I’m going to try to post monthly updates about my work and goals. All in all, February was a productive month, personally and creatively. Here’s a brief overview:
I read voraciously, completing nine books over the course of the month. These included: Joy Deangdeelert Cho’s Blog, Inc., Patricia Highsmith’s The Price of Salt, Steven Heller and Veronique Vienne’s Becoming a Graphic Designer, David Auburn’s Proof (my favorite play), Naomi Alderman’s Disobedience, David Airey’s Logo Design Love, Meg Jay’s The Defining Decade, and Michael Dante DiMartino’s The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part Two.
I set aside a little time this month to explore some areas of Colorado. Highlights included hiking in Boulder and visiting the Denver Art Museum with a friend.
Finally, February was especially fruitful in terms of creating new work. In addition to several rough sketches, I finished nineteen pieces ranging from character portraits to landscapes. I even made my first animated GIF! I also invested in a new set of soft touch business cards from Moo.com, which I am very happy with.
Throughout the month, I continued to focus on ink work, both digital and traditional. I picked up a few new Sakura pens from Meininger in Denver, and inked digitally in Procreate as usual.
As I sign off for now, I’ll leave you with a selection of recent works below.
