Finally got some work done on, what I shall title, “King of the Beasts”.  Here’s a work-in-progress shot.



What is it that I need to handle?  I’m working from a photograph, with the stuffed animals stopping in the image before I stop my drawing.  In other words, I have a lot of empty space to fill, that has to fit the format, so I have to improvise.  And that, people, is where artistry steps in and keeps one from just copying a photograph.

As for my long absence…yes, working, two jobs for this week.  I’m finally coming up for air.  I’m realizing that a lot of my issues have resolved themselves.  Just like waking up from a long nights sleep, as I was focusing on work, my subconscious was functioning, smoothing things out in the background.  I feel more secure, and my feet more solidly on the ground than it was three months ago.

However, I would NOT want to do it, again.
