Learning Is FUN! (no really, it is!)

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

Promises and Commitments

Hello, Dear Readers. Today is Monday, September 11th. It’s currently 9am. I’m sitting in a Starbucks right now, composing my thoughts. I would normally write this at home, probably near the end of the day, but the universe has conspired against me.
