Sketched a more “normal” fantasy landscape yesterday. Process here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_kywAEK1VQ

I think realistic expectations for creators are essential for happiness & sustainability.
So, realistically for me:

Good work day – 3 hours
Fantastic/exhausting work day – 6 hours

September 25, 2018 at 5:47 am

Trippy landscape, process here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtL_CzS30Jw

Listening to a book about food while fasting is a bad decision.

September 14, 2018 at 10:59 am

At the end of the year I’ll pick out a few of my favorite reads and share those. Spoiler: the trilogy biography of Theodore Roosevelt will likely be among them.

September 14, 2018 at 10:56 am

I am also a miserably slow reader. So audiobooks at 1.6x~ speed have been a boon for productivity and enjoyment.

September 14, 2018 at 10:37 am

One of my major goals for 2018 that has improved my life has been reading more. Already passed the 50 book mark for this year. It’s been amazing. Can’t recommend it enough.

September 12, 2018 at 5:52 pm

Been working super hard on some Magic stuff for a long time now, but took a little time this evening to sketch some stuff just for me. <3

September 12, 2018 at 11:11 am

I didn’t get to do much work on Ravnica this time around… so enjoy this flashback to my most popular card from the last time we were on Ravnica.

Don’t trust people whose brushes never stain or fray from use. They clearly possess some dark magics.

A little something I started last year that I still need to get around to finishing.

September 9, 2018 at 10:22 am

Kinda my first professional gig as an artist: painting interminably for Legend of the Five Rings.

BTW the new game is quite good.

I have to delay my book until at least next springβ€”good work opportunities came up and I just couldn’t say no, leaving passion projects like my book relegated to the back burner. πŸ™

September 6, 2018 at 3:31 pm

Rachel just baked fresh bread and I am reminded, once again, why it was such a good decision to marry her.

September 6, 2018 at 7:13 am

It’s a strange transition to see a painting go from something worthless, roughly treated, sanded, scrubbed, etc. to something delicately treated and valuable when it’s done.

Quick sketch I did of my wife a while back–I should paint her more. It’s a damn shame to have such a pretty wife and not paint her a lot.

August 28, 2018 at 7:41 am

Random oil painting tip: don’t paint while wearing a white shirt. It’ll reflect more light on to the painting and mess you up.

August 27, 2018 at 10:43 am

Cleansing Nova

Because everyone always needs more board wipes.

August 27, 2018 at 9:39 am

Highly recommend reading Daily Rituals: How Artists Work. It’s an enlightening look into the extremely varied lives that facilitated the creation of so much great work.
