Sometimes we can be our own worst enemies. My mother and I sometimes laugh about how much we put ourselves down; especially in front of others. As an ever-aspiring artist, I believe that self-analysis and self-criticism are both necessary and unavoidable. We agonize over the slightest details and commit ourselves to unattainable perfection in nearly everything we do. Now into my early 30's, I'm beginning to realize just how much time I let slip through my fingers being this way. I want to create art that is both appealing to others, as well as fulfilling on a fundamental level. I had a direction with this, but I'm losing it... I guess what I'm trying to get at is that I not only want to learn from others, but I want to learn from myself first. In order for me to do that, you may see some self-analysis presented along with my submissions. I'm not trying to be negative, but I want to open discussions on ways to improve my art. As I'm also a musician, I fully understand how much one person can improve themselves by practicing in a group setting. My instrumentation jumped leaps and bounds when playing with others. I want to apply some of that theory to my art. A "band" of sorts. I see a lot of artists these days who take commissions and requests, which I absolutely and genuinely respect as someone who wouldn't dream of running solo. I don't want to do that. Instead, perhaps a small group of artists, desiring to be more, who feed off of and nurture one another in the hopes of achieving similar goals. God, where the hell am I going with this!? Okay, enough for now. Maybe someone would be so kind as to give their thoughts on the matter? Am I seriously writing a journal entry and asking for audience participation?... I need professional help...
A Good Morning Goodnight
Just a quick snap I took this morning when I got home from work. Wish I could've gotten a better one without the buildings and power lines, but I think it's a pretty photo nonetheless. Hope you like it!

Pen and Ink 10- Melancholy ver. 2
I wanted to try this one again, from memory, and see how close I could get to the original. I tried to improve here and there, but this was ultimately a product of boredom, as I'm waiting for my laundry to finish 😅 I'd be interested to hear what everyone thinks of the differences between the two, good or bad. I should also stop doing these on post-it notes 😓

Ongaku-kun vs. Everyday #3: This is a pen?
This one took a little longer than I thought it would. I always seem to lose my pens the minute I set them down, and I think poor Ongaku-kun is having the same luck. I experimented a little with lighting and perspective, which I'm very new at, so I hope everything's where is should be, or at least close.

Almost anyone who's ever begun the journey of learning Japanese knows これはペンです. That is what has inspired the title of this comic.

Hope you like it!

Ongaku-kun vs. Everyday #2: Bowl of Fruit
There's a lesson to be learned in attempting to draw food on an empty stomach. Ongaku-kun learns this the hard way as he practices his realism. That is, until the hunger strikes 😉

Hope you like it!
