Some time around the end of last year or beginning of this year (not 100%) I was asked by an awesome couple to do some art for them. The request was to do a silhouette of a fairytale like tree, and a little girl on a swing set. Also, it was to be painted in the bedroom of their upcoming baby girl.

Will say a couple things about this, first, the couple and their family were amazing, making sure this particular artist was well fed and had anything I wanted to snack on, which is always a plus.  Second, and more important, it’s a great feeling when someone is confident enough in your abilities as an artist that they will hire you on to do something you’ve not done before. For a client to have that faith in my abilities is motivation in itself. Thankfully I didn’t disappoint, and they were super happy with the end result.

Additionally, since Alexandra was born, they’ve also included me as a recipient of baby picture holiday cards. Which is kind of an awesome thank you in it’s own right. Glad to see that their beautiful baby girl is enjoying her fairytale bedroom.

Got around to scanning a few more of the yearly planner art I have. Theres a bunch of other pieces in there that still need slight color washes before they’ll be ready to scan. Hopefully get to those soon, but have a bit of other things going at the moment.

For now, here’s the new scans, as well as an updated section in the Drawing page for them. Goal of 2014, organize and redesign the site/pages for easier access and displaying of what I do. Drawing page now.

Hey all, and happy start to the holiday season. Welcome to the city that is pronounced Juddgaff, but is really JDGAF.

Two bits of news for you would be, we’re late on the uploads of this and #21 coming up as soon as I upload it, due to holidays and getting sick over the holiday break. Back in good health and back to work now. So will keep em coming.
Second, and more pertaining to things. I’ve realized that JDGAF updates are eating up a lot of space on my page here, so I’ve decided that on this page I’ll only be updating the JDGAF section once a month. This will mean that I’ll be posting more of my drawing and other various artworks instead of the comic.
However, JDGAF comic’s page will still update weekly. For those wanting more, be sure to like JDGAF on Facebook, where I post up teasers on upcoming comics as well as will be posting up various thoughts and questions for others to help shape what happens in JDGAF.
