Wow, I haven't posted anything here in a while! I've been busy, but that's not an excuse!!
I changed my blog's name from "hodgeepodgee.blogspot.com" to "juliahodgesillustration.blogspot.com". I also got a tumblr, but I have yet to figure it out. It's at "juliahodgesillustration.tumblr.com".
I've decided that I'm going to post more of what I do, not just stuff I'm proud of. I've had a ton of failures, but those failures are very important to me and I learn a lot more from them than my successes. It's also an effort to be more transparent.
In the Fine Art and Illustration branches of TAD, the students have done a lot of master copies. I copied these from copies that I got printed to size (makes everything so much easier, copying from a small screen to a large painting just doesn't translate for me), and then looking at the computer copy to get what I couldn't get from the print, mostly the colors.
