Happy Birthday Anthony Hopkins
And this ends 2 straight years of the drawing-a-day task, burden, headache, etc. I've thrown around a few ideas for a drawing-a-day in 2010, but I'm thinking of being done. 2 years is enough, and although everything seems to work best in 3's, I'm leaning toward putting more of that time and energy into painting, simply because I would like to get better at painting. A full year of celebrity drawings has made for a pretty nice savings account of ideas for paintings and I can't wait to get started.
I still plan to fill several sketchbooks and draw as much as possible, but it's time to take a break from doing something with a theme and posting it here every day. The daily posts were a huge help in making me follow through with the drawing-a-day project, but it also became somewhat of a distraction at times, taking time away from doing real, finished portfolio work. Besides, whatever personal project/challenge I might come up with will probably just get stolen and used as a daily challenge on some caricature club forum again.
Anyway, Happy New Year to all, and good riddance to another decade! It may have been the last full decade this miserable world will ever see, but I hope 2010 brings you the best. See you in hell!
