Bronze Medal Winner


Okay, this sight has become a bit of a joke lately, "Sketch of the Day" has come to mean sketch of the "whenever". It's is a new year however so I'm ready to renew my efforts, I have the drawings I just need to get back into the daily habit. I feel like I'm ready to take this on again so here we go.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This painting won a bronze medal at the Society of Illustrators West show which is a positive way to start the new year and a positive endorsement for my continuing bar project. The sketchbook part of which will be available this year as a book titled 'The Little Gem".

We'll see what happens but as far as I'm concerned I'm back. Hope you are all having a wonderful start to the new year.
