nielsen study


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!

“And here’s a fun factoid from Nielsen’s year-end study: The top 10 “Trendsetters” chart for Millennial music fans—talent across all categories with the highest positive perceptions—leads with Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Gwen Stefani. ”

So Gwen ranked 3rd… with Millennials… for 2016… out of everyone! Quite the achievement at 30 some years into a career! I mean…

I love adventure fantasy books and I was wondering if you have any recommendations. I've been reading the red queen and I need something to read after.

I love fantasy books (with adventure) too! Not sure if some of these books might be your cup of tea (or if you’ve read them) but they’re definitely worth checking out.
