None! Excuses are like *please select body part*; they're dumb dumb dumb. I'm pretty sure that's how the saying goes.

Anyway, suffice it to say I've been working in the design field for the past 3 years for a local web design agency, and have grown a lot in that time in terms of becoming a team player and knowing my stuff in terms of writing markup. I've also been regularly attending figure drawing classes at Bucktown and having draw sessions with my buddy Dave, who is looking to get into CalArts. I'm not sure if I'm going to start adding new pieces here, or on Tumblr, or on a new Wordpress blog, or at all. My thinking is that figure drawing is just practice, and practice doesn't need to be posted online...it's just practice! That's the purpose of doing it. Reading that, it sounds like I'm afraid to put it online, but honestly I've been pretty happy with the quality of my drawings, especially my first few forays into painting figures in acrylics. The main issue for me is tenacity, not skill: forcing myself to sit down after work and draw stuff. To finish that graphic novel that's been in my head for 10 years. To draw those things that pop into my brain at midnight as I lay down for bed on a Saturday night, but don't want to stay up for another 2 hours to make. It would probably help for me to stop buying games on Steam. Or take fewer naps.

Anyway, this post contains way more information than I had planned, but now I feel safe listing it in my Behance profile as a source for my old stuff. Hope to provide a more confident update soon.
