Been busy working my day job and been giving myself a break from uploading art on etsy or updating my website because of the holidays. Now that things are winding down and a new year is here I am hoping to find a better balance between giving myself a break and getting work done. Taking a break from watercolor and fine lined ink work to practice my work with colored pencil as well as other mediums I haven't really played with. 

Most of my work this week is using colored pencil and not feeling tempted to fill each panel completely so that I can learn to feel more confident with negative space. 

Since I have been taking a break from sitting down and working 2-3 hours straight everyday drawing I have been reading more comics from the library and taking more walks around town. I have reached a point with my drawing arm where I can't work as nonstop as a year ago but honestly I am thankful that I need to slow down. 

Work heavily inspired by Hayaski
