Sometimes you just have to slowdown and gather your thoughts before diving right in! This was the case for ‘Chrysalis’, the name of my latest, finished @sktchyapp portrait, and i’m much happier with this version. Be sure to check out my previous posts on Instagram (profile in bio above) with detail shots. You can view the photo that inspired this portrait on @sktchyapp, under my Mr. Bandit profile. In addition, she is the 2nd installment for my new series. You’ll be able to view her and other new artworks up close and personal at my upcoming @conceptionartshow here in Phoenix, AZ. 02/10/17. More information about show times and ticket prices can be found using the link in my previous post!

It was a very busy year and I was absent most of the time. So I am very, very happy you are still around.

My biggest wish for 2017 is that I will find much more time to draw and to meet you all here on tumblr.

Have a wonderful Christmas ✨🎄🍾 and a very happy New Year!
