- Jack of all trades.
Walking down the street last week I saw a grunge-punk anarchist staring into the distance. I realized I could probably switch her sign for something absurd and she’d never know. She’d probably get more money! You know, for drugs and dog food.
Roughly a year ago I bought a brush, some ink, and decided that I’d spend the next year learning how to not suck at inking.
One thing I’ve learned since then is that there are no savants in illustration. Any good illustrator spent years grinding away, learning their craft. They seem like savants because they don’t complain. I tried not to complain, and can now proudly say I don’t suck at inking.
As for coloring? Ehhhh. Well, no better time to start than the present!
Oh also I need to get better at drawing people. And backgrounds. And multi-character compositions. And… lots of things.
