Warm Up Sketches Can Sometimes Be the Best of the Day

I think that the warm up sketches you make can often be the best of the day. You haven’t settled into the need to complete a task yet. You haven’t tightened out of play yet. And you haven’t had your vitamins yet—a healthy does of stubble (this time on the head instead of the chin). […]

A Project on Projects: Do It Anyway December

  A couple weeks ago I asked the Tier 3 subscribers on my Patreon Blog what they wanted to talk about in the upcoming webinar. Their responses surprised me: project generation and color theory.
