Update and Inspiration

After a wonderful trip to New York to visit family, I got sick. I was in the hospital for three days. Rather than going into details, I’d like to just say that I am better now.

I finished the sketch for letter J and I painted my Koi (see the bottom of the post). I’m very happy with how the Koi came out. I got some great critique from the folks at Epilogue. If you haven’t checked them out, please do.  They are a friendly bunch who offer really good critique.

Currently I am working on creating a tutorial based on painting the Koi and many more letters. My self-imposed deadline is coming soon!

If you are in need of inspiration Illustration Friday has a weekly topic for illustration. I have found that it gets me going when I am in a rut. This week’s topic is idle.
