“Oh, but a man’s reach must exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?” -Andrea Del Sarto Been feeling very introspective regarding art & photography recently. Flopping back and forth between my hunger for new creative horizons in illustration & 3D graphics, but also wanting to feed my photographer's heart that wants only to pick up an AE-1 like when I was a kid and just document the life & light around me. There's so much freedom in being a new artist, you're not limited by what you know or have seen. I'm catching myself now working on learning to envision art in new ways, but I'm ignoring the the old instincts that carried me here in the first place.

Belated #huevember day 16. My inner muse has been sick of my shit lately and hasn't been a willing participant in my work. I've been staring blankly at a screen a lot. My kids gave me the prompt for this one, "A mage getting attacked by an assassin! And he's summoning a storm!"
