Repeating One Song for Hours

It’s the end of the year and Spotify graciously created a playlist of my top 100 most played songs for 2017, conveniently called “top songs for 2017.” It’s my second such playlist (2016 was jammed full of good music, some new and plenty not so new) and let me tell you, this playlist is full of songs I remember putting on repeat and just letting them play endlessly. Sometimes a […]

Veronica the Vicious

Feels good to have another character from the story fleshed out and rendered.  Veronica is one of Red’s old teammates and a main antagonist in the story. She stands at the forefront of most of the opposition Red experiences at the academy and the two loathe each other deeply. It’s nice to have a face to the description of the character and it’s already starting to pull ideas out of […]

A Place to Call Home

Life surely is some sort of journey. Many steps taken in one or different directions – over a lifetime – will take you somewhere. But is it the place you want to be? I’ve found myself deliberately (and accidentally) in places, doing things that if I’d asked my younger self, I would have surely laughed at the question. Regardless, here I am. Luckily I’m still me, haven’t lost myself or […]

Bedtime! The Best Time to Post a Blog <3

Interesting things happen when you decide to sketch for an hour or so before bed, instead of consuming YouTube videos.  When you decide to work instead of play.  Things get done.  The ball moves forward and you are that much closer to a goal. I should do this again and see if I get similar results. -Jesse   “The most valuable thing you can make is a mistake – you […]

Today, Will We Finish?

Alive and kicking. What’s there to complain about? Going to do a quick art stream today starting at 3pm MST. Stop by and say hello twitch.tv/thefro3po

This Guy Takes Care of Himself

Got a quick sketch in before work the other day, really wanted to do some characters stuff (not portrait) something quick cause I only had about an hour or so.  I like how it turned out.  I’ve dipped my toes back into the Premiere pool and am enjoying myself.  I still have to work on some intro/outro stuff for my videos, but that’ll be down the road. If you’re able […]

An Alley is Not Your Ally

A lot of late nights, accumulating into a collection.  A conscious effort to accelerate the very thing that occupies my everyday mind dream. I walk a path, I make the journey… the journey makes me.  Not stopping when I’m hurting, just attempting to bear fruit before the curtains catch me. Recently started dabbling in streaming my creative efforts (https://www.twitch.tv/thefro3po come check me out, I’m streaming Tuesdays at 12-4pm MST and occasionally […]

Sketching is the Best Thing

Portraits have always been my favorite things to sketch.  People in general have always been a bit more interesting than environments and I tend to lean in that direction when I sketch, but I’d like to start incorporating more environments in my sketches… We’ll see what happens. Streaming has been going well, I’ve started to upload the full streams onto my YouTube channel  and will be tackling some timelapse videos as […]

Photoshop my Friend

I’ve been dying to jump back into photoshop, if not just to play around a bit.. feels like forever since I’ve been able to paint anything digitally.  Now that it’s out of my system, I should do it again.  🙂 For now I’m off to bed. – Jesse “Live out of your imagination, not your history.” – Stephen Covey

Step One Complete

I’ve reconnected to the digital realm via an actual computer… love the ability to post on the go and the options mobile devices provide.  But I’ve always had a computer since 2005 and I’ve grown quite attached and comfortable with it (and the ability to actually type out a whole blog #heaven).  Glad to have it back. The main reason though I’m super stoked about having a computer again can […]

Read Fantasy

It’s been taking awhile but I’m finally starting to see ideas merge together. Still in the exploring phase, just further along…
