I've been negligent about updating my blog, honestly been busy working a third shift job and mainly updating my tumblr kmrussellart.tumblr.com. It's mostly pic of my sketch book stuff from my phone. In any case I'm working at a warehouse doing work for breaking down deliveries and even breaking down huge palletes sometimes 20ft long to get stored and sorted at the warehouse. Lot's of lifting and pushing, feeling sore and tired and in certain moments wondering about my life and how things go. I like the people I work with, a fun bunch of folks. Still been doodling like a fiend and working on projects and trying to be optimistic about this being an artist/illustrator/mad dreamer. It's a job non the less and puts some much needed change in my pocket. Dealing with the cold and snow can be a hassle, surprised with how I'm handling the winter though. Learning to drive a forklift bit by bit.
One thing I've realized is people don't usually realize just how much work goes into honing a skill and being dedicated. They just don't get it, puts certain thing in perspective to have a dream that i very tenuous when you have much more pressing concerns, like food shelter etc.
Anyhow on to 2014 and few doodles, rants and who knows where else I might head to this year mentally or physically. Check out some sketches from this last few months or so, once again check my tumblr for nearly daily updates at kmrussellart.tumblr.com

Once again my updating this blog has taken long than I intended, much longer. I've been updating my tumblr more often yet I plan to keep this blog active. Check kmrussellart.tumblr.com for more frequent updates, mostly sketch work though. In any case it's almost been a year since I've been in the Chicagoland area and it' been an experience, not the way I expected though. That's life for ya though, still working on my craft and making steps to be professional, also figuring out my own plan and such and realize that people jut won't get somethings if they don't care to look. Can't let that bother you and jut follow your own convictions. I have recently become an uncle, my brother is now a dad. I remember him as a baby to think that he now has a son is quite funny to think about. Time goes on, this year is almost up and I'm just going to work through it and see what happens next year. Easy to look at my life as being crazy but considering the myriad of problem and occurences in the world, Typhoon Haiyan for one on top the economy and the usual problems, I'm doing alright. On to some sketches and such, with some digital work thrown in.
