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 [...]

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 [...]

Art Challenges are a great way to grow! Are you an artist? Are you looking to grow your skills? If so, I highly recommend trying one! This month I’ve been working on a challenge focusing on texture practice with my friend, Diane Do (Twosenseless on Twitch..check her out!!). Each day there is a new prompt of what texture to practice, everything from stone to lava to feathers! I am [...]

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 [...]

Drawn in 2018 Drawn in 201o Screencap of my sketches folder from 2016. 8 years separate these two drawings. There's quite a bit that can be crammed into 8 years. Truth be told, a lot of my learning and growth as an artist has happened within the last 900 days. I made a commitment to my art, myself, and my business to make a new drawing every [...]

There are many ways to celebrate Christmas... And one of my favorite ways is with art.

What better theme to work with than Christmas time? :) Below are several of the Holiday and winter themed illustrations I've done over the past few weeks. I hope you enjoy them as much [...]

You Draw, You Learn I've been learning a lot with my recent sketches. This batch is no exception. In the latter entries I started working with the gradient mesh tool and have quite a bit to absorb still. I want to make the scenes softer and find a good way to add more texture into each. I'll keep you posted on how that goes! An apple a day... School started recently, so I [...]

The Jelly Bunnies wanted to do something nice for Momocheet... So they went to fetch some cherries because they are one of her favorite fruits. :) Working together is second nature to Jelly Bunnies as they are so small. This sketch was really fun to do. I was experimenting with composition here and really enjoyed how the colors came out. Let's Go Fly a Kite... Some time ago I did another Momocheet [...]
