Stargate SG-1 and Original Movie Discussion

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a bit on some of my recent viewing habits. Over the last year or so, I’ve been watching a lot of the free content on Roku TV, especially the Bob Ross Joy of Painting and Mystery Science Theater 3000 channels and some of the other movie offerings. Along with the Roku-related viewing, I

Sharing Multiple Drawings – Another Geralt and Ciri

My habits when it comes to artwork typically involve sporadic bursts of motivation. I often tackle one drawing at a time, spending a couple of hours on the project before I move on to something fresh. Sometimes though, I become so inspired about a topic that I work on multiple pieces concurrently or in succession. There are quite a few

Geralt and Ciri Art From The Witcher Netflix Show

Recently, season two of Netflix’s The Witcher series debuted. Back in the summer lock-down months of 2020, I wrote a bit about my impressions from season one and my fondness for the Witcher 3 video game. That game is one of the best open world RPG experiences I’ve had, right behind Skyrim and Dragon’s Dogma, so I already had positive

Thoughts on Portrait Requests

First and foremost, happy new year to all! It feels like we’re stuck in a bizarre time loop in some respects. I definitely remember thinking last year at this time, “hey maybe this pandemic business will finally settle down next year.” Well, I have the same wish now – hopefully 2022 will finally see COVID become background noise instead of

Weekend Relaxation and Unfamiliar Movies – Pandorum Drawing

One of my all-time favorite things is a nice lazy Saturday with the family. It’s a fantastic scene from my perspective: We’re all upstairs and probably still wearing whatever we slept in. My wife is reading, the kids and I are drawing. We’ve got Joy of Painting or maybe some HGTV-style show on in the background. The coffee is fresh

Art Backlog Thoughts and Cousins Hanging Out

At the moment, I am quite backlogged in terms of both finished portraits I haven’t yet written about and ideas for future drawings. I’ve written about my tendency to get behind on this sort of thing, to develop a backlog, but this feels like the most extreme it’s been in a long while. I currently have four finished drawings that

Narrated Walkthrough, Drawing Process Discussion

One of the early pandemic projects I started was to transition from progression .gif slides of my drawing process into full time-lapse videos. I created a YouTube channel to host them, rather than take up my precious WordPress hosting storage space with large video files. I’ve had the YouTube channel now for about a year, and in that time, I’ve

Guitarist and Busker Mariusz Goli

Like a lot of people, my primary method for visual music consumption is YouTube. In the absence of an actual television channel dedicated to music videos (what a novel concept), it’s definitely the go-to method for enjoying official music videos. But it’s also a great venue for watching live music recordings and for independent artists in unique genres. One niche

Navigating Subtle Facial Expressions

In conversations with acquaintances, colleagues, and other various newly-met people, occasionally my drawing hobby comes up. Although not everyone is particularly interested in art, usually I can expect a follow up question or two; something along the lines of “what do you draw” or “using what?” People are usually somewhat surprised to hear that I consider my comfort zone to

Princess Bride Part 3 – Westley and Buttercup in the Fireswamp

Where does the time go? It seems like I ask myself that a lot. It’s probably on my mind so much lately because I’m rapidly approaching four decades of stumbling around on this planet. My kids seem to be growing faster than ever, and I’m trying to capture and appreciate everything that’s happening as it happens. But it’s hard to
