Hiatus ongoing - short update on the Art Dispatch.

29 November 2021 - Reading time: ~1 minute

Well - the art hiatus that I mentioned in the last Art Dispatch has turned into something much longer. For various reasons (some RL circumstances, some consequences of my own actions), I haven't been producing art of any significance since Inktober ended.

I will have to resume my art at some point -- hopefully before the end of 2021 -- and when that happens, the Dispatch will also resume.  But for now, this blog is still on hiatus.

Thank you for following my Art Dispatch and my art progress all this time.  See you on the other side!

Finishing the 50 Bird challenge: Weekly Art Dispatch No. 32🎨

3 October 2021 - Reading time: 6 minutes

I got quite busy with RL matters and didn't publish a Dispatch last week. So here is another double issue.

After the intense focus of the big bazaar illustration in Dispatch 31, I dialed things back and did two weeks of smaller, faster art pieces. Amongst other things, I finished one drawing challenge, and just in time for a new art challenge: Inktober.
