Greetings, dear readers! Today I want to share with you some resources I’ve been using lately to hone my skills as an artist.

Here’s a sampling of what I’ve been working on lately: I was a part of a charity zine called Love Trumps Hate, curated by CM Donovann. The zine featured artists and writers who… Continue reading Back to the Basics
