How To Start Learning a New Skill

A little bit each day + repetition = new skill! There’s a short clip of an interview with David Bowie that I love and have tried to keep in mind through all of my creative endeavors. I turned this into a comic just a few weeks ago. Recently I finished Atomic Habits by James Clear and there were several sections inside that reminded me of it: Pushing a little [...]

It's just 5 days, but every year they go by so fast. Wow. What a year this was at SDCC! Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by the booth! It flew by quickly as it always does, but this year seemed particularly brisk. Maybe it was all the excitement around the giant Momocheet that welcomed people into the booth? It's hard to predict what designs will lead a [...]

Another year has gone by and another SDCC is upon us, with a lot of changes arriving along with it. For the past several years BeKyoot has been in the far far far upper left corner of the Exhibit Hall, so close to Hall H that we could hear the rumble of screams and speakers as popular panels were underway. For SDCC 2019 we are in a new location, booth 2449, right in [...]

How I Get Through Art Block

Artblock is a pervasive problem for anyone who creates, so here are my tips on how to break through it and set yourself up for a fresh creative streak! Though not the same thing, artblock and burnout share a lot of similar qualities in my mind. One can very much be the result of the other. In both situations, it’s hard to find something that ignites your passion to [...]

Each day there is a new prompt of what texture to practice, everything from stone to lava to feathers! I am [...]

Happy New Year! I hope 2018 was a good one for you and that 2019 will be even better. It always surprises me how fast the year goes. Before you know it, it’ll be April and then May, and then half the year will have passed. It’s scary and exciting too, the onus of the future and all the things you can do with it. Ever since I started my dailies, I’ve had [...]

I hear something in the air...could it be...jingle bells? ;) It's hard to believe, but another Christmas season is upon us. Every year I find myself surprised at how fast the year has gone, and have to think back on what's been accomplished. One of the big things for me was finishing Illustrated ABC's. I feel like it happened much longer ago than it did. I began the project near the start [...]

SDCC Merch is Online! This year at SDCC was an especially exciting one. I had more new designs at the booth than ever, Happi Paper's brand new redesigned plush got his debut, and the first of hopefully many BeKyoot children's books was shining bright.
