Hey everyone. Well, in the last couple of weeks, my family made a pretty big decision. I retired from teaching middle school (after 8 years) to give this children's illustration dream of mine the full attention I think it deserves. I'll also be able to stay home with our 2 kids which is awesome! So I'll be around lots more now, as I'm going to be kicking myself in the pants pretty hard to stay up on creating new, dynamic, and exciting pieces for my portfolio. I'm hoping to be submitting to agents as well. Prepare for the blitz!
I'm also giving oils a try in earnest now. It's what I really want to be working in (acrylics dry to dang quick) and I want to maintain a "fine art" quality to what I produce.
While trying not to seem too redundant, I selected another Rockwell for a color study. The line drawing has some pretty obvious flaws, but I'll be really focusing on color. Anyways, that's what's going on with me and what I'm working on.
