Prelim sketch-in-progress: Listening for Elves; 1895
2014 was a different year for me art-wise. Rather than try goal-setting, which just makes me cranky, I just tried being a bit more organized, something I've stubbornly resisted in the past. It worked pretty well, because it bought me time. As a result, I learned more.

The addition of some structure carved out time to take workshops, get out and meet artists, and dig into social media for active study instead of aimless scrolling. And while my sketchbooks have always been used hard, I was able to expand that use, and man did I learn.

I'm not much for resolutions either, but am caving in to three:
Gonna keep a lid on my stubborn, keep to that bit of structure, and hope to keep learning in 2015.
Thanks for reading this, and for checking in now and then.
