Every now and then, you get so caught up in the work you're making that you lose sight of how to be creative. I've been feeling stuck lately so I thought I would unwind and relax a bit. I bought a how-to book on cartoon animals and another on kodomo (kawaii) cartoons. It's really been helpful in letting me go back to the basics and just draw stuff for the fun of it.

So, here's my first post! I hope I can make these daily, but being a full time artist with a full time day job is hard to maintain. These sketches are some general ideas I'm throwing out for a series of paintings I'm scheduling for this summer. My goal is to have them completed by the end of august. That's quite a long time away, but I'm also working on two indoor murals and one large exterior mural for a radio station. Yikes...
So, for the past couple of years I have used this blog as temporary storage for my artwork. Once I had a formal website, I would begin to post daily stuff about what I'm currently working on. I'm glad to say that the day has finally come! You can go to www.daniellustration.com to see my artwork, and from now on I will be using this solely for daily studio updates. Yay!
