    1. Kayleigh, thank you very much. I love your work (especially your geeky stuff)!! But you haven’t posted anything up recently. Are still drawing/painting?

      1. Thanks Nam! I had a huge psychological block where I struggled to draw or paint anything for the best part of a year. I think it happened because I made the mistake of taking on commissions, and too many of them. I know now that I work best when I paint what I feel like painting. The pressure of completing a picture exactly the way someone else wants it just doesn’t work well for me.

        It’s been a frustrating year – but in the grand scheme of things, I don’t mind having lost that time, because it led to an important discovery that will help me for the rest of my life. 🙂

        Glad you like the geeky stuff! Definitely more coming along – I have to finish that Toshirō Mifune pic for one thing!

  1. I completely understand!! I am very fussy taking on commissions. I have one now that is killing me! And the person is very understanding and patient with me so I am doing it to myself.
    If you notice, I have been posting pencil nudes lately. That is because I want to get back to basics and do what I want without anything weighing me down. Being loose and free. That’s why my proportions aren’t great but it doesn’t bother me.
    Kayleigh, I completely agree with you and I’m very happy you learnt something so important.
    And yes I would love to see your Mifune!
