Welcoming 2017

Last year, my art goals included completing sketchbooks, reading new art books, making more timelapse videos, painting a lot more, and trying to paint people (the scariest one for me – people are so difficult!). I knew I wouldn’t get through all of my old goals, but I’m very proud of what I’ve done, and I want to push harder in 2017.

My basic goals are to sketch every day, paint even more often, improve my craft, and sell more. I know it might seem less heartfelt or personal to say “sell more!”, but I would love to be able to make my art into an awesome business so that I can maybe even spend more time making more fun paintings, so to do that, I really do have to get better, make more, and sell more. I’ve also considered something pretty challenging, like a (small) Kickstarter for original custom paintings. In any case, I think this year is going to be pretty crazy and you can expect a lot of art from me 😀

I’ve put together a little video compilation of my artwork for this year, and I’m pretty happy with what I’ve done, but like I said – more more more!!!  In any case, I wish everyone a great new year, and good luck in all your creative endeavors especially   Feel free to let me know what you’ve done last year or your goals for next year!
