Favorite Media

I believe media has a major influence in how art turns out.  I feel, and I'm using myself as an example, artists create better works of art when they are interested in their subject and their media. I absolutely HATE charcoal and Conte` Crayon, and I'm sure all of you know this, but when I use ink, pencil, or watercolor I really enjoy my art.  I've had a few good charcoal and conte` drawings during class, but I'm more comfortable with wet media, therefor I take more risks and I'm more satisfied with the outcome.  I also feel a lot of my better pieces were done in my favorite media.

Don't get me wrong, though, I am open to trying new things every now and then.  I guess I'm just one of those weird people who hates getting their hands dirty.

Hey whats up ,

I am creating a Graphic Novel and I made a blog documenting the process, i'll have artwork, sketches, ideas & more posted on there. I saw you were into graphic novels and thought you would like to be interested in following the blog. I need followers to build up a buzz and if you think the project looks cool, I would appreciate it.

You can find the blog here:

Let me know what you think! Thanks!
