Busy, Busy, Busy

So, I’ve been a very poor blogger lately and I apologize. As you may know, my fiance and I are getting married in less than two weeks and now is the time when all those little things start to come up – and they usually take longer than expected.  I’ve also been working on revamping my website so that my portfolio and blog are all under my own domain name. Hopefully that will be finished before the wedding.

To tide you over until I have either a new website or some new work I can show you (I can’t show you any of the work I’m doing for the children’s book yet), I’ve posted another work in progress shot of Hatch. This is a piece that started as an Illustration Friday sketch and has taken on a whole new life. I love inking, so this has been really fun despite some art supply malfunctions. My Tachikawa School-G pen is officially dead (after only a few months) and I need to invest in better quality ink (my Speedball is getting dry and gunky), but the up side is that I was able to use my new Tachikawa wooden nib holder and comic nib that I hadn’t had an opportunity to try yet. Turns out I love them!

We’ll be back from the honeymoon in early May, but I hope to get another post up before the wedding. Thanks for reading!
