Going back home & Starting from scratch

So things have happened in my life since i have picked up the pencil again. And with the major changes that have happened im going to take the opportunity to take my art career as a cartoon and comic illustrator and go full force.
First thing im gonna do is move back to my home in Monterey ca. Folks are letting me stay for a full 6 months rent free so this is the perfect time to gsther my thoughts leave all the old crap behind and reboot. Giving myself the real opportunity to do what i really want to do.
On top of that I have decided that i want to go back to school and pursue my education in the arts in illustration. Im thinkin Bachelors degree.
Im honing and improving my craft as an artist during this time as well so that i can prepare to enter the world as an artist that has something to show. And finally im going to be traveling by going to varioys comic conventions. This has been a huge dream of mine to be able to do this.
So with that being said, its time to ge movin!!!

Talk to u later

30 Sketches of April and other projects

So a new month is here and I am doing a couple of projects to keep myself occupied and something that will help me improve in my art. One of them is something called #30sketchesofApril. Everyday I'm going to be posting a daily sketch and sharing it across all my platforms online. I'm down for the challenge for sure and I'm looking forward to seeing what I can come up with. Below is the first lineart drawing of Princess Jasmine from Disneys Aladdin. You can follow me in this project on Instagram where I put up the majority of my work. Follow me there @idwalkerart.

Another project I'm doing is more for personal use and it's called The Pose Bible. Since I'm going to be doin a lot of art and commission work in the future I need a quick reference and something to build my visual library to draw anything I need to on the fly. So I'm creating a sketchbook full of various poses and things so I have the ultimate reference at my fingertips. So far I have over 100 poses done in two days. I think that's cool!

On Instagram I will be marketing myself and my artwork on a major scale as I am now taking major strides to make this a bit of a career for myself. So any support would be wonderful! If u like what I do let me know and don't hesitate to share with others. You can't buy? Then still support and tell others about me and see if they are interested. I want to inspire and be inspired by creating awesome and quality artwork for everyone!

See you next time!
