Inspiration, why is it so hard to find sometimes?
For a long time Ive felt as though I had none, or at least, very little of it. Like my imagination had just disappeared.
I don’t know how or why but its like my mind was just empty, a blank slate, and quite frankly… That sucks.
Recently however I feel as though it has come back, not on its own however. A very good friend found it and brought it back to me.
He told me that he loved my art because I really try and you can see the effort put into it.
He also told me that I should draw what I liked and whatever I wanted to.
Thats what really got me, I guess being so busy and not having time to draw a lot I got stuck. I stopped drawing things that I liked because I was trying to hard to think of something that other people would like. The reality is that people like my art because they already like what I like or they just plain like it!
So yeah, 2 simple sentences and I recovered something I had lost. He brought it back to me without even having to look for it, I am so grateful for that. Thank you!
It reminds me of another when a different friend once told me, “I don’t want to copy, I want to create my own”
But nothing lost nothing gained right? Now that person is having a hard time in their life. I just wish that there was something that I could do to help, but it seems like there isn’t anything. I would love to give him a painting and hope that I can give him even just a little bit of what he gave back to me.
This year has been so busy with work! I haven’t had anytime to really do much and I feel like the summer is disappearing . Soon it will be over and I will have done nothing to enjoy it.
*sigh, gotta make money somehow
If only all this work was in the winter time. I hate always having to work longer hours in the summer. In the winter I get time off or short days or something. Something called time when there isn’t much to do.
no wonder I haven’t posted any new artwork huh? Hopefully I will have a chance to do some, I kind of miss it 🙁
I also miss spending time with my friends outside of work.
Though I am thankful for the people I work with, because they pretty are my friends 😀
But who am I kidding? who ever has time? lol
A year can pass by so fast, in fact it seems like nothing, I haven’t even noticed that its even been a year.
Even so, I suppose its a special thing to celebrate
1 year with someone special
1 year with someone who is always there
1 year with someone who will always care
1 year with someone who is my best friend
1 year since the Avengers
Just wanted to share this picture with you all. I’m fairly proud of this one. I think that it has to proper use of light and dark pencils. I think that the subject is sharp even with the shading, so I guess that I have improved in my pencil work.
This is a gift for my grandma who is returning to England after a short visit here in Canada. I haven’t seen her in such a long time, I’m glad that she could visit. I’m happy that she is able to do other things and enjoy being with us after the loss of her husband recently. I’m quite sad that I was unable to see him, but I am glad that his suffering has ended.

Today Is my Birthday, and king of a special one at that. I’m 25 today!
I got really something really special and really cool. I would never have thought to buy something like this… I will be sure to keep it in a special place.
a my dad bought me this crystal dragon from last years, 25th anniversary of swarovski and year of the dragon (which is my year) and one of my favorite creatures to draw. I really love it.
Besides that I got to have a really nice dinner with family and I’m going to have all my friends for dinner on the weekend.
So anyways for my birthday I would really like to get a fresh start on my blog and my website (Thus the clean slate). I’ve spent a few years learning and playing around with the website, its been a horrible torture of a project but I feel that I have now succeeded.
While it is still in the process of being complete… I am happy with the new layout and most importantly the new gallery.
I am also going to be using my blog more often to post new art, tutorials and other artist tools which I use and recommend.
