The New Year has just rolled over, leaving behind 2012. I don't make New Year's resolutions, but there is something to be said for the start of the calendar year.
The last couple of months have been really busy, so not as much happening on the art front. I got a whole bunch of new books over the holidays as presents, so they are certainly providing heaps of inspiration. I just need to find the time to let some of that inspiration out! I picked up Cover Run: The DC Comics Art of Adam Hughes, Apes and Babes: The Art of Frank Cho, and Alex Ross: Mythology. I also snuck in a few volumes of the Dark Horse Conan trade paperbacks as well (featuring Cary Nord's brilliant work). All awesome stuff, that I'd highly recommend. And yeah, it's pretty heavily slanted in the comic book direction, but that's the junk I love.
I am hoping this year I will be able to get some more larger art projects completed. I enjoy sketching, but I want to do some more complete pieces with my paints and markers. Keep an eye on the gallery and see if I can fulfil my objectives!
