I used to be a member about 4 years ago, but took a hiatus when I started my new career as a tattoo artist! I’ve been busy doing a lot of learning and experimenting in that realm during that time. Really I’ve been binging on exploration for my entire life, thinking that I need to learn how to use paint, markers, colored pencil, digital et al. I also really enjoy so many different styles and subjects, so have been more or less floating in the land of mediocrity vs. mastery.
I realize now that I really love drawing with a pencil more than anything, using value and line to push form, so I am looking to get back on track and align my art and tattoo career on the same path.
I am really looking forward to being a part of the community this time too! If anyone has questions, or might like another pair of eyes on their art from time to time, don’t be afraid to reach out 😉
