Quick Post-Mugshots Galore!

      So I was rummaging around Instagram (as I do) and noticed that a bunch of artists do daily warm ups.  I've never done them because I felt that that was time I could have spent on the piece I was working on.  Well an hour into working I'm going back and changing everything I did that day cause it was stiff and annoying!  Well DUR!  The hour I spent drawing, getting frustrated, then going back and re-doing could've been just me warming up, then starting fresh on whatever piece I was working on.  So I decided to stop being stubborn and tried some warm up faces the other day, and honestly, I'm hooked.

This new found "frustration free" way of working got me on a roll doing a series of Mugshots I've been wanting to do for probably a good year now.   Disney villains!  I'm in a frenzy trying to get pieces finished and printed for an upcoming Artwalk in Livermore this October, hopefully I'll get enough of them done in time!
