A Quickie

Ok, so this is a quick one.

  It's a real quick sketch for the "something bigger" I spoke about in the last post.  I didn't use any reference so it's far from perfect and it served two purposes, a chance to just get an idea down quickly and the opportunity to practice the digital art thing.

As before, enjoy and farewell until next time

A Balancing Act (or should I be Juggling)

It is a very tough thing to do and I am very aware that I am not the only one.  But, I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day.  In fact just trying to organise my life in my head at the minute is tiring enough.
I really only have a few things I need to do each day, which are (in no particular order of importance) be a dad, maintain a relationship, run and grow a business unit, go to the gym, general chores and stuff around the house, eat and sleep, the rest of the time available is mine to waste as I see fit.  I choose to waste this time indulging my creative side (or drawing as it's usually known).
So, I am trying to get as much done as I can with the art thing, which includes this blog.  I am trying to get involved in lots of mediums and practice the stuff I'm used to, plus I am trying to get started on something bigger and more long term (more about that in later posts).
Like I said, I know we're all in the same boat (and what a busy and productive vessel it is) it just amazes me that we are able to squeeze it all in.  I guess all I'm really trying to say is, I just wish we all had more time.
Anyway enough writing, this blog is supposed to be about art.  So, here's a drawing of an old man.
There are some photos of this being created that I will add when I load them on to my PC.  Until then enjoy.

This is an elephant

Ok, so I know I really should be adding something to this post, but it's quarter past midnight and at the minute I really can't think.  All I can say is that it's an elephant drawn from a picture I took.  As always, enjoy
