A family member asked if I could come up with something for their podcast. My idea was to come up with characters based on them, and kind of in the shape of beans. Overall the experience was fun, and I got free range to do whatever I could come up with. I ended up doing two concepts for them, one from what they wanted and another from what I thought I could add to it which was by literally drawing them in a pot. Check it out in action here: http://twobeansinapot.podbean.com/ , along with the podcast, which is pretty funny.

With Sketchyhumor, it's been really fun working on it, and I feel as if I'm starting to settle into a groove with it. I also feel like i'm abandoning some of the parts of the comic I wanted to include, like making them into animated gifs, using full color, and incorporating the comic into photographs. Doing those things tended to be more tedious and made the whole process lose it's fun. I still want to do more with the comic, like turn it into short animations and make a 10 page comic out of it, but I still feel like I need to find my footing before I can more forward with that.
Overall I feel like my personal artistic ability is getting way better. It's funny how I felt that I got better as soon as I started actually giving myself stuff to do. I'm excited with my progress and I'll continue to work on any projects I can in order to get better.
My plans for 2014 are to continue doing as I've been doing these past few months. I'm definitely going to continue to work on Sketchyhumor, because I feel like it's fun outlet for me. I also would like to collaborate more with other artists and writers to challenge myself and actually have completely projects instead of just a bunch of concept work. Another project I'm planning is something that gets me working on art based on real world fields that I want to work in, so keep an eye out for that one. Ultimately the point of all this is getting a job doing art, in what field? I don't care because I really want to do it all.
