December 2021 Roundup

Happy New Year!

2021 was a rough year so I hope 2022 will be better. And I hope everyone's staying safe!

I just realised that I did not publish the monthly roundups for October and November 2021 but they are up now. You can see the past monthly roundups from this page:

It's been a busy year making all these reviews, text and videos included. I probably say that every year. I've also made several Skillshare courses in 2021 on sketching. As such I haven't been sharing much art on my Instagram or even on this blog.

By the way, if you know of any artists who are self publishing their artbooks, or if you're publishing your artbooks, feel free to contact me and I can help promote those books on this blog. That's assuming the artbooks are in line with type of artbooks I usually feature here.

And if you're an artist who has something to share regarding internet marketing or finding work, I invite you to contribute to the internet marketing articles I've been writing. You'll be able to help out other artists in the industry.

To get email notification to the monthly roundups, please subscribe to the newsletter.
