Meta drawing. In 2013, when I got a new graphics tablet, I drew a pool party containing character requests from some Facebook friends. In 2014, I redrew that pool party to showcase my skill progress. Here I am 3 years later redrawing the pool party again benchmarking my progress. It has been an incredible journey and I can’t wait to keep going.

What’s also fun is how some of these characters have grown in that time period. Ellie is older and Dany’s dragons have gotten considerably larger.

project pool party 2 final

Over a year ago, I drew a piece on my new Cintiq drawing tablet that involved 9 characters and a pool party.

It was my first piece on my new drawing tablet. As proud of it as I am, I’m happy to know that I’ve grown a lot over the year in terms of skill & patience.

So today I present to you a redrawing of that first piece containing the same nine characters in the same environment, a pool party! It was a lot of fun, can’t wait to get started on the next couple of projects I have lined up.

From the left: Ellie, Rose Red, Rhaegal the Dragon, Omar Little, Cloud, Steve, Viserion the Dragon, Drogon the Dragon, and Daenerys Targaryen.

I’ve included the original picture below.  I’ve come a looooong way.


On another note, I have more projects on the way, Black Carnival, Saga fan-art, some Korra, I have a lot of ideas and hopefully the time to do them!

It’s been over a year since I pledged to watch The Wire and I’ve finally accomplished it.  People have gone to great lengths to define the greatest television drama of all time, with The Wire more than often reaching the finals if not being the victor.  That’s what truly inspired me to get in on this in the first place.  I mean, regardless of content, personal taste, or opinion, if this many people are praising it or even talking about it as much as they are, I figured it would definitely be worth the shot.

So 5 seasons later, which equivocates to over 40 hours, [5 seasons with about 10 episodes each episode having 50 minutes] here I stand, finally having an opinion on what is regarded as one of the greatest shows on television.  And shit, boy did it not disappoint.  We’ll keep this discussion spoiler free as I’ll tread lightly on some of the high points of the series.  Read on below to either learn about the Wire or simply relive some memories.
