Remembering Idaho

The Idaho Commons. Pen on paper.

It’s coming up on a year that I’ve moved, a year since I graduated, and a year since I started working as a professional journalist.

Despite the amount of time away, I can’t help but think of Idaho as home. It’s where I grew up. It’s where everyone in the family except myself and my aunt live. And it is so much greener than the Southwest. The air is fresh, the breeze kisses the skin, the sun filters through the pine trees.

It was a good 20-some years, and I can’t wait to visit in on vacation.

Feeling Maleficent

After watching Maleficent with Angelina Jolie, I decided to draw the misunderstood evil fairy.

After working on the outline and facial features with pencil, I need to figure out what to do with the wings.
