February 2018 Update

Greetings, friends!

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:

Literary:

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.

Travel:

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.

Creative:

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.

Cheers!
