Alicia Keys in pastel

Alicia Keys was one of my favorite artists growing up.  I always enjoyed her piano playing combined with her soulful singing.  I drew her years ago in charcoal when I was much younger.  So, it was exciting for me to go back to doing a portrait of her in Soft Pastel, a medium that I never expected myself to enjoy using so much.  

I hope you guys enjoy!

Until the next time, keep busy staying dizzy!

 

New Year's Portraits

I greeted the New Year of 2016 with my friends and a very cozy cheerful gathering.  Armed with a mechanical pencil and some Sharpie Oil Paint Markers, i knew what i had to do.  

Chewy looking pensive while we were playing a game of Munchkins.  What a weird game.

All in all, it was a very enjoyable way to welcome the new year.  Good food, great company and a good night.

Welcome to the new year of 2016!  

It's been quite a while since I've done any updating on the website and it feels like coming home to an old room that was left in a mess.  Hoping to have a lot of work (and more consistent updating) for the coming year.  I haven't been living under a rock all this time.  In fact, I've had a lot of adventures in the time I haven't been updating.  

So if you have the time, come check out my new YouTube channel:

So until next time, keep moving forward.  (And I hope the next update won't take forever again)
