#30in30for30: Days 10-15 and My Sudden Loss in Skill

Okay, I’m not going to explain this any more, so if you want to know what is all going down with #30in30for30, FIGURE IT OUT YOURSELF. By clicking right here. If not, let’s just get started with day 10.

PORTRAIT 10: Completed March 23, 2014
Medium: Acrylic/Collage

So things were going just great. I drew me a neat caricature of my good friend Billy, and it looked something like this:

And I really wanted to use the black paper that I used for my pastel drawing, but I didn’t want to use pastel again anytime soon, so I had to think of what would show up on black paper. The first thought I had was white paper, and because I didn’t have the time to think up anything better, so I redrew the sketch with simpler angles because I was lazy and I don’t like cutting with my sword of exact zero (If you haven’t seen the Lego Movie, you’re awful and need to see it immediately). But when I cut the pieces out and arranged them, I didn’t exactly get the result that I was hoping for…


A quick update on #30in30for30, and an Even Quicker Thank You

Hey guys!

Soooo I have news. You know how I'm doing that #30in30for30 portrait project? Weellll, thing is, it's due this Thursday which means crunch time in terms of preparing each of the portraits for critique. Instead of posting the next four or five portraits this week, I'm going to focus on that, as grades in class are a bit more important to me than a blog I run for fun. Hopefully you'll understand.

I'd also like to thank each of you guys for being such great readers. I always love reading your comments, and I'm glad that you really enjoy these posts. Most of the fun of this blog is getting your feedback and knowing that I made you guys smile.

I should have the next #30in30for30 post done before next Monday, and after that series is over, I have a couple mammoth posts that I really think you'll enjoy. Again, thanks for sticking around these (nearly) three years of blogging, and here's to more good times!

Much love,


#30in30for30: Days 5-9 Plus Revelations???

Yo dawg, and welcome back. I’m really bad at introductions, so I’m just going to jump right in with the #30in30for30 project. If you didn’t read the original post, you didn’t miss too much (although the entire description of this project is kiiiiiind of important if you want to know what the hell I’m talking about), but if you want to play catch up and see one of the two better portraits of the 30 I’ve produced so far, click here and be super entertained!

But enough of that. Let’s just get cracking on the next day.
