Shepard sketches. 

I’ve become a lot more comfortable with my pencils of late. This last year has been a great lesson in diligence. Keep drawing, no matter what, and you will improve. Just keep trying new things and be as fearless as you can manage. It will be worth it.

The same holds true for writing - hell, for anything creative. 

I’ve spent a lot of my life trying to measure up to artists I admire and respect, never realizing that I don’t have to be like them to be good at what I do. That’s the beauty of art. What we create is, at its best, a reflection of us. Who we are. What we feel. How we relate to the world. If it were all the same it would be boring.

Anyway. Enough of my morning ramble. I need to make all the coffee.

To trick me in to being more comfortable with buying a car, my wife said we could name it Normandy.

We’ve been slowly accessorising it accordingly.

Long Service Medal from the rear view mirror; yo dawg I put a Normandy in your Normandy; Renegade on the right, Paragon on the left; and of course the classic N7 on the dash.  Awwww yeah.

My lady and I finally decked out our car.

Finishing touch will be finding a 12x7 Alliance Navy light permeable emblem for the back window.

Who’s a nerd?
