Let us try this again.

Sooo...Everyone understands how to use a grid to make a drawing and why one would, right? So no need to continue explaining that process.

I have actually decided, post-Thesis Exhib, that putting more line-work into and leaving more evidence of process my drawings was once and is again important to me. This comes after an elderly woman working as a docent asked me if some of my portraits were photos. It is a nice compliment, to be sure, but not what I had intended.

Here we go, I am going to try to post a photo or scan everyday. Maybe not with word accompaniment--for now I should focus on the Art.

Today: A wolverine I plan to use in an upcoming Artwork.

Good Day.

It is so refreshing that I am not the only one...

Dave Malan is an amazing draftsman who shares my view (to a certain extent) on the use of photography regarding models:

But, if you check out his blog, and I highly recommend you do, he also draws from live models with extreme skill.

The 'Stay Tuned'--So much for daily, huh?

Here is an Earth Day 2010 inspired screenprint a friend and I ran off. Did not sell any, didn't want to. Gave them away.

Sorry to all of my loyal followers (of which there are zero) for not keeping up on the 'Daily' portion of the title. I re-titled for specifically this reason. Hopefully I can set aside some coffee time to keep this going more regularly.

Save the Gulo Gulo!

I was very disturbed to find out that the wild wolverine population has shrunk to disturbing numbers (approx. 200-ish?), yet it is currently not listed as threatened or endangered. Please help save the wolverine, nature's land incarnation of pure awesome. What does this have to do with art, you ask? Stay tuned friends...stay tuned...

I am smashing a bottle of champagne on the hull of this blog!

This is the inaugural post of the JChuck blog. My intention is for this to be an almost daily supplement to my website. Now if I can only find a decent designer...

I have a couple of probes out to separate graphic designer friends (some successful, some bored), though we haven't spoken about logistics at this point. I guess if this is as close as I get to a 'real' website, then so be it.

For now I will be happy to share the insight I can afford to give out about my artworks with the foreboding dark reaches of cyberspace. If you are reading this... thank you?
