I went to the Quarry Hill Winery in Berlin Heights! Since I almost never travel I thought I would post some photos.

They aren’t the best photos as I was a little embarrassed to be taking them.

I’d like to go back, take some better photos, and visit the apple orchard down the hill someday.

Whisper in the Wall

I started (and stopped) working on this image months (maybe years) ago. The idea was to self publish a children’s book. Then I looked into it and realized it was just impractical. Nothing I make really sells so I just couldn’t fathom going through with it. I only ever worked on the cover and a another page. It was more like a short graphic novel…

Even though the cover isn’t really finished or up to snuff I really liked some of the details, like the lamp light on the wall, the peeling wallpaper, and the picture hanging in on the wall. I tried to make the hall seemed curved eerie and unnatural…

I even found the sketch I made when I was doodling up ideas!

Celeste

Yesterday I was trying to determine if my Wacom pen was broken or not (I’m still not sure). So, I thought that while I had a migraine it was a good idea to work on some detailed backgrounds for something important.

Naturally, that wasn’t going to well, so I started working on this, Celeste, or Celestial Queen (sounds like a ship though so let’s just go with Celeste).

The pen is definitely broken but it is functional occasionally. Considering the amount of time and how angry I was at the pen I’d say the drawing turned out great. The background is a little to dark to sell as a print so I might tweak it a bit a post it on my redbubble shop later.
