If you haven’t heard of Copics, they’re… Continue reading The CHEAPEST Alcohol-Based Markers! (Ohuhu Marker Review)
Hey everyone! Ever since I’ve gotten into Broadway music, I’ve looked into seeing shows. Kathleen and I have been really fortunate to be able to see both The Sound of Music and Phantom of the Opera at the Schuster Performing Arts Center.

Hey everyone! I wanted to put this out yesterday (y’know on actual Mothers’ Day,) but Kathleen and I were on the road for about five hours and I ended up forgetting to post.

Hey everyone! We haven’t done a step-by-step blog post in a while. Fortunately, while I’ve been working on speed drawings and colored pencil works, Kathleen has been getting more and more into ballet and painted a new ballet piece of art. First, as always, she sketched out her painting. Then, she painted a light blue… Continue reading Painting Dancers
Hey everyone! I’ve been drawing my entire life. My parents have oodles of photocopies of my old drawings from when I was 5-10 years old.
