Not 'gone' -- Recharging!

It's been at least a good 3-4 months, if not more, since I started to push out a drawing. Busy is as busy does! Now to finish this one!

This is an ink (ballpoint pen) sketch of a friend's stallion, Foxcreek Warrior. Now to get my butt in gear and get more done!!

You'll have to pardon the quality; my camera has broken (can you say 'insult to injury'?) and I had to use my whopping 3 megapixel cellular phone camera to snap a shot of this...

Tiny,

Been running around like a chicken with my head cut off! Bamber has finally reached a point where I'm comfortable beginning mounting work. We were hit by the 'Hurricane Isaac storm cells,' so had some free time at work and gave him a break while it was raining. During that, had a friend text me the photo of the horse.

Otherwise... Cue dating drama. Small town! January I'll be leaving to attend farrier school in Divernon, IL.

Anything big that I missed here?

Hahaha, if that's what you want to call it! One of these days I'll have to message you the novel that's my 2-3 months of dating excursions...

Time has been tight... I've been working slowly on this small handful of practice projects.

First, two wolves playfully wrestling. Referenced from an image taken by Monty Sloan, and used with permission. Drawn in ballpoint ink pens on Canson paper. 9x12"


Another wolf on Canson paper, this time in HB pencil.


Aaaaaaaannnnddd the ink sketch of Foxcreek Warrior, as soon above in clearer imagery!
