I Never Want to Play an “Edgy” Game Again

Hello Readers! If you’re anywhere near New England (which most of you are, if Social Media is correct), I hope you’ve been enjoying the lovely weather! Honestly, I prefer today’s 60-ish to last weeks 80-ish, but it’s been beautiful nevertheless. My last blog from a couple of weeks ago mentioned that I was just about… Continue reading I Never Want to Play an “Edgy” Game Again

100 Day Project 2018

Hello dear readers, Katie here. Have you heard of the 100 Day Project?

On Art Styles

Hello dear readers, Something I’ve been struggling with drawing-wise lately (actually, pretty much forever) has been figuring out my art style. It’s an incredibly nebulous thing. I can point out what things make my favorite artists’ styles unique, but I can’t for the life of me figure out what gives my artwork its distinctive “style”.… Continue reading On Art Styles
