I always enjoy balancing my complicated projects with something more simple. They often turn out better too.

1 minute gesture drawings. Sticking with a mechanical pencil to do these since that's what I use for most of my commercial work anyway. Gets challenging since you can't draw with the side of the pencil. So instead I have to rely to how hard I press down vs how lightly I draw.

I updated this painting recently of my grandpa. Repainted the left side to brighten up some of the darker areas.

One of my favorite spreads from a kids book I illustrated in 2013. "Champions of Change" by Jeremiah & Joshua West.

"The powerful drawing of the masters is largely derived from other masters, not from copying nature. It is an interpretation with the purpose of attaining a high standard." -Arthur Dow
