Hi everyone!

I hope your holidays treated you well. Back to the old grind, eh? Wait, wait, WAIT. Let’s not put it like that. Let’s not let it BE that. I want to have fun. I want work to be fun and experimental. I want to take risks.

On and off throughout my life, I’ve dabbled in drawing and painting. I’ve never had any lessons–and it shows. Remember when I talked about needing a hobby? Something that wasn’t work but ALL fun? Well, I’ve decided to make that hobby drawing, and I’m trying to get beyond trying to be awesome at it, ’cause that ain’t happening.

It’s hard, letting myself just create and not worrying about the end product like my career depends on it. But it’s such a release.

Some of the drawings/painting turn out better than others. Then we have this:

Just thought I’d share.

Keep your nose in a book,
