I mailed a sketchbook to a friend and decided to do a small painting (around 5x7") along with it also. She's an incredible draftsman and artist. Check her out. Much props.
I just remembered I showed a preview of the painting in a previous post.
I realized I really love giving my work away. Anytime someone says they like something, in my head I always reply, "do you want it?" But for now, where I am, one of the most helpful things has been able to constantly pull out some old/recent pieces and learn from those; what I did well,(very little) what I didn't, (alot) what I need to improve on (everything). Its based on something I read in The Art Spirit by Robert Henri. By far one of my favorite books and one I recommend constantly.
I have a few more things in progress/finished that I just need to take some time to properly photograph and edit. Currently I am also a full time Graphic Design student, this being my second major, my first being Communication Arts, VCU's Illustration course, which I finished this past spring. I didn't graduate, but I walked with my buddies that I had learned and grew with the past 3 years.
Plan to see a little bit more of everything on my blog; illustration, photography, maybe some design based stuff too. I'm excited to make this a little more personal and enjoyable for myself and hopefully for everyone and anyone who stops by. Thanks for following, I appreciate it greatly.
If your interested and have twitter, I post some in progress and studio shots on twitter and some stuff that I might not post on my blog +http://twitter.com/WilliamGodwin+
Here's currently what's on my drafting table, a gift/birthday present for another friend. Really excited about this piece. It's taking a loooong time and I can't wait to share.
That's all for now, thanks! Later!
