Happy 2007 everyone!!

A portrait of St. Ignatius that i just finished for Loyola Marymount University in So. Cal.
It has been an eventful year for me. I have been lucky enough to finish up both my masters’ degree and get hired on as a full time instructor. I have been lucky enough to be part of Drawger, and to meet so many wonderful people through my association with it. I appreciate the comments and feedback from the work I post here, Drawger has grown into such a positive force for me. If I am not mistaken, Drawger isn’t even a year old!

It has been a bittersweet holiday season for me. I will be saying goodbye to the bay area, but I know that there is a lot in store for me in Michigan.  I will miss the friends that I have made here in California, I will miss the weather, but I am excited for the chance to teach illustration.   I go through a rollercoaster or emotions from being really excited, to being really nervous to the anxiety of getting to school on time…

Because of Drawger, I have been able to connect with people who have an impact on me both as an artist and as a person. I have been able to meet people whose work I have admired for a long time.  I appreciate your comments even though I fail to reply most times.  It makes my day when I post something and someone is moved to comment! 

I hope this next year will bring great things to each of you. I hope it brings a measure of peace to this world.  I hope it is a prosperous year for all of us. I hope that our country will find its way.  I hope we all can make great works of art, work that makes a difference.

I hope to keep the resolutions that I make, the resolutions that I don’t write down or speak of, for fear of not keeping them.

Here is to an amazing 2007!!!
