Here’s a Valentines commission I did a while back.
I love it when people do OOTD sketches and wanted to do one too but I wear pretty much the same thing everyday. Thanks, winter. I have been trying to step up my eyebrow game tho, so there’s that.
I recently did a splash illustration for an episode of Baked Goods! This was a lot of fun <3
If you follow me on twitter you probably know that back in early May my dad was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. A few weeks ago, the day after his 55th birthday he went in for surgery. That particular surgery is very risky, it’s around a lot of major organs and arteries. Complications arose after what we initially thought was a successful surgery, and on September 8th my dad died.
I drew this for the memorial cards for his celebration of life. My dad started running in his 40s and ended up completing 7 marathons. Beside him is Buddy, our golden retriever and my dad’s running partner. About eight years ago my dad was fixing a garage door (his own business that he started from the ground up) at a golden retriever breeders farm. Long story short we got a puppy in exchange for a door repair.
I’m very lucky having grown up in a family where we often say I love you and always know we mean it. We all spent a lot of time together, we got to say our goodbyes, but I don’t think it would ever feel like we got enough time with him.
My dad cared about people. He spent time volunteering with victims assistance. He was genuine and kind and funny as hell. Having long term goals is good and all, but what it really comes down to is just try to be a good person. Care about people and love them and you will be loved and remembered.
I love you Dad.
