So I had a baby…

On March 3rd Emilia “Emi” May Diak came into the world and fell immediately into my heart.

And so the Sketch Wars Drawing Club is born.

Here’s how it works is: I post a drawing prompt onto my Instagram and Twitter  accounts, then participants throughout the week complete and post a drawing based on the prompt. They then post their artwork onto their personal Instagram and Twitter accounts with the tag #sketchwarsdrawingclub.

What I’ve been up too (Part 2)

Last week, I wrote about the Jack Marshall comic strips I’ve been working on. This week, I’d like to share with you a couple of pieces that I’ve done recently just for fun.

First up, I’ve been waiting to do more Star Wars: The Last Jedi related drawings, but since I’ve been so busy I haven’t had much time. I really like my design of Chewy in my “HOPE” collage so I thought I’d do a Chewy focused piece. Add in a few porgs and…presto! Ya got a The Last Jedi tie-in drawing!

Next up, the AT-ST Walker.
