Happy New Year everyone!   To start it off, here’s a new piece inspired by my favorite game of all time.  Props to whoever can guess what that is.   It’s been an unbelievable year for me with some lows but some incredible highs.  Hopefully, this year I can build off of what I’ve learned and make some real progress.  It’s early days but I know that 2017 will need to be a pivotal year for my art.  The training wheels are coming off and it’s time to start being more proactive with my projects.    

I’ve always operated more like I consider art to be a passion that sometimes pays rather than a job that I sometimes like.  And while I think that being passionate about what you do is ultimately more important I do think a balance needs to be struck.  Man does not live by dreams alone, and it’s time for me to start thinking about how I can support myself with my art.    

In that spirit, I’ve decided to start selling prints of my work on Inprnt!  If you like my work and would like to support me consider purchasing some of my work!  I’ll include a link below. 

To everyone who follows my work I want to say thanks for being along for the ride this year!  You all make the struggle worth it.  I’ve seen my work improve a lot this year and I can’t wait to see what it looks like this time next year.  Hope you stick around to see it.
