Virtual Love & Other Works

JANUARY 15, 2010

With the beginning of the new year, I am resolved to use the time in between commissions to create images for my own amusement. So far, I've been averaging one per week. It's hard to say where these ideas come from. I basically sit down with my sketchbook and begin to scrawl and think about issues and feelings that I'd like to give shape to. I've always felt that illustrators must produce art other than that which is the product of demand. The discoveries made during the process are necessary in order for us to grow creatively.
