Before I continue on I should let you all see what I got in return for Millie here. Lisa had painted this beautiful portrait of a despondent old woman in her kitchen. It's a really beautiful scene that she captured but take a look for yourself:
Alright. So, within these past four months of not updating you all with whats crackin, I've moved to Missouri. That's right, I'm a Kansas City resident. I'm looking forward to (more) making artist connections and some friends a long the way. I've got myself a job and everything. Hooha! It's not a grown up job quite yet, but that's what I'm working towards in this brand new year!
I've been drawing just as much as I usually do. At the same time I'm playing with new mediums that I became unfamiliar with at school-- such as Gouache, Watercolor, and Acrylic. I have it all posted on my sketchbook tumblr. Give it a look see! I'm pretty excited to be playing with new mediums and eventually getting them up to speed. While I'm playing these waterbased mediums I'll be hopefully building a portfolio I can walk into grown up illustration jobs with-- like Hallmark and whatever else Kansas City has to offer!
Until then I'll do my best to update with some of the cool stuff I'm getting myself into. There are some pretty cool things happening with a band I recently met. More on that soon, until then listen to this Fiona Apple song that I listened to A LOT while I was painting this image. Parallels in the video to the painting are strictly coincidental. Oops.
