For those that don’t know me, I’m a work-in-progress everything, but especially in the area of drawing/art. The last time that I learned art was in high school and it was my lowest grade (which I resented at the time, but fair in retrospect given my effort and talent).
However, when I started creative writing in early 2020, I felt there were some things that were better articulated visually then with words alone. So, I started creating companion illustrations for my poetry and short stories. Since then I have primarily focused on visual expressions of my creative idea, but recently I decided to up my skill game and practice some of the basics. My thought is that by refining some of these skills, I will be able to bring them back into my creative pieces in the future.
With all that said, here are a few of my recent “skill building” attempts which have centered around food and drink. If your interested in seeing my attempts at human form, check out my Sketchy Drawings.
