Derek Myers and His Daily Dose Of Miniature Art

Derek Myers is a proactive artist, his latest project involving sketching out a drawing a day for one year, using a felt pen. The creative series features beautiful natural landscape which are framed by geometric patterns and designs. By utilizing the paper as a texture to create the rough natural element such as snow or stone, the detailed scenes of the wild become tamed and restrained within the symmetrical framework of lines and shapes. His compositions are reminiscent old tattoo work, with their monochrome tint and depth of meaning.

(Slapping some test colours on one of ~17 panels, which are about half roughed out as of tonight! …Not including the backgrounds, which are just sketched in…)

Thanks for sticking around during a period of silence on my end, friends! I had a busy couple of weeks, between finishing up my part of the job for an upcoming project launch at one office, grading a huge stack of papers at the other, and submitting a conference paper, and it left me with approximately enough energy to walk my dog and eat meals for a while there! If you ever want to chat with me and I’m not around on here, feel free to hit me up for my Discord details. 

Anyway, I’m still hoping to do a White Day comic–the one I promised last year, haha–in good time before I launch into some kind of multi-page project in the spring, but man! Time’s really zipping by. @_@
