Abandoned (with apologies to Kay Nielsen). Digital, 2015.
This was a redraw of a style study piece I did around 2010-2011. Here’s the old version, just for kicks:
I had to draw an abandoned/haunted Victorian-style house in a garden (or garden like area??). The basic composition and ideas were good, but damn you can tell I was still learning about shapes and lines!
I still like the piece, but I decided to redraw it for a submission. I’m pleased with the result!

Study: ‘16 and Pregnant’ may have reduced teen birthrate by 6%
The New York Times: MTV’s cautionary program, “16 and Pregnant,” and its spinoffs may have prevented more than 20,000 births to teenage mothers in 2010, according to a new economic study of Nielsen television ratings and birth records.
Mobile devices are aiding in growing these numbers, with consumers’ time spent using social media mobile apps and mobile websites accounting for 63 percent of the year-over-year growth. Forty-six percent of social media users say they use their smartphones to access social media, and 16 percent say they use social media on a tablet.
