Figure drawing from your computer

February 23, 2012inspiration

I just discovered this link: http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/ So far I’ve only tried out the animal drawing part, and I like it. It mimics an actual figure drawing class in that you can draw from a picture at different intervals.

3×3 blog, For what it’s worth

February 22, 2012News Articles

Here’s an uplifting blog entry I read. In fact, I feel illustrators have a much better opportunity to be successful in the future than designers. Why?

3×3 Annual

February 2, 2012News

Yesterday, I received in the mail the new 3×3 annual! I am on page 243. Unlike other illustration directories, 3×3 is much cheaper. It’s also curated, so I was ┬álucky to get in. Hopefully, this will lead to something else.
