My return commences

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 29, 2015, 4:28 PM
Based on recent events, I'm suspending my art hiatus so that I can get back into the quest of improving my skills to prepare for future ventures.  I'm looking to interact with and learn from my watchers.  Specifically, what steps have you taken to improve and grow as an artist?  I know that practice and observation are important.  I'm looking to improve my traditional art skills so that I can be a bit more well-rounded.  If anyone has some interesting art prompts or exercises that I should look into, I'd be glad to learn what those may be.  Also, if there are tutorials that you'd recommend, I'd be glad to look into those.

My summer academic term is going really well, and I'm finding myself with far more time for art and reading than I expected to have.  As a side note, I've also joined a social site for writers called Figment.  I'm still seeking readers for the first act of my novel-to-be titled Transpecies.  You can learn more about the story from the featured deviation (book cover design) to the left of this journal on my profile.  I also have a gallery folder where I organize content relating to the story.  If you can commit to reading and privately responding to the work within six weeks, it's yours for free to read and enjoy.  I'd love to incorporate reader feedback in guiding my efforts at revision of the prose manuscript.

I hope summer is going well for my watchers.  Whether you're a recent or long-term watcher, thanks for your ongoing interest in me and my work.
