Dammit, it’s 2020 Part II!

So as you, dear reader(s) know, I did it. I reached my goal of 100 portrait paintings in 2020. In some ways looking back on it, it feels like it should have been easier. I mean, in the end, I apparently got to 109, but until around November, I really wasn’t sure if I was […]

Drawing Cartoons Isn’t that Damned Easy!

I’m not gonna lie, I love painting and drawing and visual art in general. Sure, some contemporary art can be challenging, baffling and, let’s face it, boring.
