Sometimes my bots make it into my journal. Here is a recent one that I sketched up. Speaking of journals, I guess blogs are online journals and I never really get that "deep" so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm definitely wanting to start diving into my art more. It's one of those things where I have this gift from God but I feel I'm not giving it the time and attention it deserves. I'd say several months ago I had a thought that changed my view a bit in regards to my art and in general thought the creation of man.
It's very encouraging to know we're made for a reason, a purpose. God knew each and everyone of us before we were even born. He made you specifically for Himself and it's comforting to know the gifts you've been given please the Lord. So when I paint or draw I try to think of God viewing my art in a way where He is excited and wants to see what I come up with. Of course you can go into the whole thing of God being timeless and already knows what I'm going to create. However, it's very uplifting to know that our God takes pleasure in us. So, I hope whatever gifts you have can help you see what He has in mind for you.
It's been a little while since my last post, but I'm back! The Chicago Con was great and thanks again to all those who stopped by to say hi. I also really appreciate all who purchased a print, original or commission at the show. It was a very encouraging time and I'm looking forward to possibly attending more comic conventions in the near future.
Once I got back from the con I had to get to work on a painting for my mother's 50th birthday! In true Jeremy fashion I of course waited till the last minute to work on this. I usually struggle with what kind of work to make for her because I want to do something nice, but it's hard for me to work with the subject matter and style she likes.
Above is what I came up with. I used acrylic paint on illustration board. I also used some watercolor pencils as well. I should be posting more regularly again now that I have some free time, so don't give up on me:)
Couple older sketches from last week. Feels like forever ago since I posted, but I guess it's not that long ago. Anyways, looking forward to be drawing some more this week/weekend. Especially since I'll be in Chicago for the Chicago Comic-Con...I'll be brushing up on my superhero drawing skills in artist alley with my trusty sidekick Drew Jones.
