Back in Black (and white)...

Mon Jul 6, 2015, 12:32 AM

Hi everyone, I'm afraid I've been a social media hermit for the past six months, due to general burnout and a day job that has been demanding more of my time. Apologies to those of you who have commented on my work and received no acknowledgement from me; I'll try to catch up in the next few weeks. I also apologize to those of you whom I watch. I'm sure there are some wonderful pictures in my inbox that would normally have garnered a fave or comment from me, but instead have been sadly ignored.

I also appreciate those of you who have reached out to me privately wondering what the heck happened to me.  I'll admit to many "why am I bothering with this" moments, but the answer to that question is really "because of all the cool people I've met here". So I'm back.  I look forward to reconnecting with you all.

I haven't been terribly productive during my absence, but I have picked up the brush in an attempt to give a little more life to my drawings.  There are a couple of examples at the top of this post (the references are from magazine pictures). The brush can be frustrating and difficult to control, but I'm liking the results so far.

There's also have a big project ahead of me in the next month or so:  my youngest daughter is finishing up her first novel, and I have promised her that I would do some illustrations for it. Stay tuned.

I am a software engineer who, after 30 years of focusing on marriage, kids, career, and other pursuits, has decided to try and resurrect the drawing skills that have languished since college. I started with digital art, but found that I spent too much time in front of the computer. So after much experimenting, I have returned to my favorite medium, traditional pen and ink.…

Hey Glenn, are there any new masterpieces coming from you soon? :)
It's been a while so I just wanted to ask how are you.

Hey thanks, my friend. As you can see from my latest journal post, I'm resurfacing after a long absence. Can't promise "masterpieces", but I'm hoping to be a little more active around here.
