Don’t Stop, Keep Going

  I think one of the biggest mistakes an artist keeping a visual journal or sketchbook can make is to stop when he gets frustrated.

I Test the Ultra-fine Tipped Pentel Artists Brush Sign Pen

Roz Is So Gross—Making Art By Any Means Available

I think it’s important to make art every day, by any means necessary—or in this case available. The other day I went to my massage therapy session. Dick dropped me off because I can’t drive with my right foot in a cast.  I sat in the waiting area. Since there was no one else there […]
