January End on to February


Well, that’s all folks.  I’ve come to the end of my 30 in 30 challenge.  I started by Dwarf project to give me an excuse to work on faces and hands.  In the end, I came out with several images I liked and some I probably should have reworked.  I will be compiling these into a sketchbook and running my first kickstarter later in the year.  Probably around March or April.  It appears my February is getting busy.

I’ve decided that in the month of February I will be doing the Month of Love challenge.  I’m going to work on 4 paintings on the subject of love.  The first week’s subject is on “Heroes”.  I’ve worked out my idea and will be working out the drawing today and tomorrow.  I will be posting it by next Sunday.

Also this month I plan on attending two SCA events.  The Valentines Day event in Kalamazoo, MI on the 13th, and the Heraldry/Scribal event on the 20th.  I’ll be teaching a class on creating your first scribal equipment kit for those interested in Calligraphy and Illumination.  In related news, I have become our local groups Chronicler which means I need to get our local group’s newsletter out.

Then I also have plans to create a new website because I’ve been rather disappointed in what I have up at kirktaskila.com.  I need to get a good gallery up online with a webstore that will advertise both original art and prints for sale.  I plan to have lots of original art for sale this year so I hope you’ll follow along.

Yup, I think that will keep me busy.  Thanks to everyone who has commented or shared my art.  I appreciate the feedback.
