I thought I'd share, in honor of my one month blog-posting, my first Danny-Gregory-Just-Do-It-Already drawing from back in May. The outline's a blind contour of a plant, and the end result amazed even me (after having not drawn for a couple years).
I also want to extend a gigantic THANK YOU to everyone who's left me lovely, encouraging, funny, kind, generous comments over the past few weeks. It's hard for me to respond to all of you (mostly because one comment turns into 2, which turns into 7, and then an entire A/P file goes out the window...), but I want you to know that I read them all, and they leave me warm and bubbly all day (just ask some of my officemates!). Everyone's work inspires me a whole lot and it's been great getting to know all of it, and you too.
What's this? A twofer! I'm including a sketch of an illustration I'm doing for a class (a final! :-0). It's a narrative of the Griffin. Or Gryphon. Maybe I'll get an A-, who knows. I thought it'd be fun to have a running status report until Sunday, when I'm supposed to be finished with it. Plus it'll give me a chance to engage more in this blog. I kinda feel like I've been slacking a little :-/.
And I've never been big on emoticons. What's the deal tonight? §|:->
