For those of you who read my June 12th blog, I have good news: my friend, whose art gallery was forced to close, has found a new home for the gallery and is already putting together a show for August. I was really saddened when his first location shut down, but he landed on his feet and is starting up again, and so quickly, too...

Such great news!  

Well, I just learned that a local art gallery - where I have exhibited my drawings alongside 80 other artists - is closing down. The gallery operated for five years and hosted three HUGE shows per year. There are other local galleries where I can still exhibit my work, but this is a real blow. I loved this place and its closing fills me with profound sadness...

Such a shame 

Well, here's a drawing I did last year of the awesome @liya The scan is a little light so I hope everyone can see it well on their screens; I really should rescan it. Also, at an art show some years ago, I picked up the habit of hiding my Email address somewhere in the drawing in case people wanted to contact me and

No worries about the placement of the email, it's not that obtrusive!

Thank you, @maggie_fracture ! Thanks, @liya , but it really jumps out at me! I will hide it better next time...  And @kaicito , I feel I've made it blend in far better in the past, but in this instance I blew it! Ah, well...onward! :)

Today is National Donut Day in the USA; but I think it really should be National Boob Day. "Big and small, we love them all!" To celebrate, here is a portrait I drew of my friend Jess, native of New York state, and proud owner of two big naturals. Drawn from a live pose.

maggie_fracture:
Woop!!! 
liya:
Very lovely! 

Are people here still interested in seeing my fan art and other drawings? I will happily share them, but if no one gives a toss (as my friends in the UK say) then I won't! I have several local art shows and festivals coming up, along with some online activities, so it won't break my heart if this stuff is not to the...

Love your art!

Keep posting please! :) 

Alcohol. Nope. Never liked it, and never will. I don't care if other people do, but even at my age, some people give me grief over it. I don't quite understand why. I can be silly and be fun without it. Anyway, I drew this last year and exhibited in a local art gallery (and recently on my deviantART page) and got some...

You're definitely a ball of fun without alcohol. Forget what others think they just won't get to know you!
portraitguytwo:
Thank you, m'dear @cadavre !

Have you ever felt that no matter what you do, no matter how much effort you put into something, it will never be enough because of some external factor beyond your control? Argh!
Just venting! Thanks for reading.

Yes, especially when it comes to art. (Don't have the right supplies, don't have enough time, etc)

It does feel that way sometimes but don't be too tough on yourself. Truth is, the best you can do will always be enough for the people that matter 

I tried to post this as an image instead of a blog, but SG kept giving me an error message. Not sure why! Technical issues, I guess... but this works just as well! Anyway, here is my new drawing of @amaryllis This is my favourite pose that any model can do. I hope you like it! - David

amaryllis:
I love it! It's so wonderful thank you ox
cadavre:
looks awesome

I have quite a few new fan art drawings to post - tonight I am sharing my new pic of @azalea , and in the coming days I will be posting new drawings of @amaryllis , @miaa , @chefbethrogers , and many more! I hope you enjoy them! - David
