Now that I set up the look of this new blog, I should do something with it. Hence line one.
I've had blogs before. Though this new blog will likely include attributes of my past blogs, I want this one to be more of a collection of articles, tutorials, recordings, and insights. I set out to share my views and inspirations whilst on my journey as an artist. In addition, I'd like it to serve as a reference and journal of my projects during the creative process. Partly so I don't forget how I tackled a specific technique, especially since I have a habit of wanting to push my own existing skill sets, seemingly with every new project.
I plan to incorporate posts on the marketing and publicity of titles and fellow creators (authors, musicians, etc.). I'll also provide links so you can find them in 'the wild,' such as finding books and CDs bearing my artwork at #WillowRavenOnAmazon. I also want to be a type of work diary. So it may get boring.
Over the years, I've gotten many questions about my process, tools, and techniques. Though I'm not sure I can adequately convey such an abstract concept as 'my process,' I shall try. I have a learn-as-I-go/fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants workflow. When I wanna sound 'fancy,' I call it Organic.
Moreover, I intend to share links to the daily toys, gadgets, and tools I rely on to help me do what I love. It took me decades to find my go-to sources. The links may help you find your future favs more efficiently and faster than my stumble-through-the-dark method.
Let me know when something I posted benefits or inspires you.
Thanks for spending some time with me :)
Until next time...
