Hey everyone,  sorry for the lack of updates recently,  I'm having a hard time keeping up with all the different art posting sites.  I have been pretty good about Instagram though,  the format lends itself to posting a lot more work and work in progress.  Without further ado:

I also have a tumblr,  which is really only updated when I remember to post from Instagram
