Happy New Year, Charles! And this is a great post, especially cause of your process work. I always love seeing how an artist's piece starts off or is roughly sketched out. Cheers!

Oh! He's got one of those cool hats made from the seldom seen Moose Oak. I'm jealous. The birds appreciate it too, I see.

Very inspiring. Reminds me that every time I put pencil to paper I don't have to produce a masterpiece. Just draw, draw, draw ...

Great piece, I also dig your idea sketches for it.
I also finally finished mine and sent it to Drawing Dreams. I was told that the event has been re-scheduled to March.
