I debated what to do here for a while. Should I post everything I doodle, sketch, and dump on paper? Should it just be a few things here and there? I’ve come to find that I like including my mistakes because not many artists show their less successful side – at least not regularly. Some of my sketchbook stuff is pretty regularly awful. 🙂
There’s a lot of talk about developing a personal brand. I’m still figuring that part out, but there’s one thing I know for sure – it’s going to include the good and the bad. Maybe this site should have a WTF page. Or a WTF drawing of the week or month or something. And then a “I’m super proud of this one, now show me yours!” page. Art is a community after all. It’s not a bunch of perfect-looking paintings hanging in a gallery. As ugly as the internet is sometimes, it’s allowed artists to share their work more than ever before, and there’s a lot of beautiful work going around.

For now, here’s a Keep enjoying this grump lady I inked a while back:
