"A sketchbook is a secret thing, a collection of unfinished and often times abandoned ideas never intended for public consumption—at least not in their current state. It’s a private space for honing one’s craft and workshopping, separating good ideas from those best left unexplored." -Brian Heater at The Daily Cross Hatch.
Time, is not on my side.
As a "hobbyist" illustrator, the exigencies of family and work come first- and at my age (as noted by a recent study) it is very difficult to find time to pursue one's passions.
However. I'm still here.
The above work-in-progress is a portion of an illustration for a book I'm going to review (At Drake's Command by David Wesley Hill). So, bear with me.
I'll probably be posting more doodles- as those are the only "real" pieces of art that I do on a regular basis.
