Journal Ambience (JA) #22 - Life Drawing & Anime/Manga Inspired Self Portrait

Hi friends,

I hope you’ve all been keeping well?

Firstly, my apologies for my hiatus and apparent elusiveness. 

The reason for my absence, is honestly, largely to do with working towards entering many competitions that have been held the last couple of months, only to just miss out, by unfortunately not finishing them in time. Nevertheless, there are some which I feel are still still worth completing, to include as part of my portfolio. The only problem is scheduling when to finish them, between current and more pressing work. I will of course share these, as soon as they are completed.  

In addition to this, the remainder of my time has been dedicated to producing work for others and continuing personal projects. I’m sorry to say that I won’t be able to share details about them just yet, but I hope to unveil information soon.

For now what I do have to show you, is my ongoing practice of life drawing and a self portrait that I actually drew weeks ago, but only recently rendered. The latter, is drawn in a pseudo anime/manga (caricature) style that I’ve been practicing again. It also serves added importance, of pertaining to a project that I look forward to unveiling shortly. Stay tuned.
