Meriadoc

My beloved cat, Meriadoc, died suddenly last month and it completely stunted my ambitions for being more actively creative in my daily life. I’m finally to a point where I’m not weeping uncontrollably. (I miss my kitty so much!) So, I decided to start on a series of illustrations and small comic strips depicting him. I want to honor his memory and do something positive to occupy my time with (instead of sitting around feeling sorry for my loss).

Also, I seem to be updating my Tumblr more often than this one, even though I was starting to collect more content to use specifically for this blog. I want this to be more than just single picture posts. I have a lot of ideas floating around and very little energy. Anyway, here are two quick sketches of Mer. The first one is from September 2012. And the second one is from last month; January 18, 2013. Just to give you a general idea of my style.

A New Year, A New Blog.

It’s a new year, which means it’s time to try new things!

I’ve always wanted to make my own blog but, I’ve never really had anything I felt like sharing. I’ve been an aspiring artist for what seems like a lifetime now. But I’m very shy when it comes to showing my work to others. I’m hoping to overcome my fears of rejection by blogging about my current projects.

If anything, this will be a new learning experience.
