When I go out I try to bring a camera with me, then when I see interesting compositions, colors, or textures, I can use them for reference later. These quick photos make great warm up drawings and are good for exercising the mind. I always ask, “What do I keep? Omit? How do I make this more readable?” Not every drawing is a good one, but practice makes better.

Sailor Joops for the Treviso Comic Book Festival’s Sailor Moon Exhibit going on September 24th - 28th.

Also, some of you may recognize this piece as looking similar to an older one I did years ago. I revisited the theme for this new piece.
Forgive & Live
If you have gone through great hardship, you must unburden yourself of the pain it left you. Through hard work come to forgive your oppressors and–equally important–forgive yourself. Embrace your suffering and rekindle a loving spirit. Live again.
