Stephen Edge
Digital, Corel Painter, 2015.

Haven't had much time/chance to paint lately as I'm on parental leave and have my hands full dealing with my 1-year old son all day long. I managed to squeeze out this portrait though.
I'm currently trying to take commissions for portraits like these in order to save up money to buy a Cintiq 27QHD. I´ve got about 84 more portraits to go, at 300kr/35$ a piece, so if you are interested just let me know.

This is a portrait of a friend that I made for fun/practice.

I was born.
I figured out how to hold a pen.
I drew.
I liked it.
I hated it.
I liked it again.
I applied for artschools.
I got rejected.
I got angry.
I painted more.
I had an exhibition.
I am still painting.
... Since I last posted a journal entry. The passed year has been filled with all the new experiences that comes with becoming a parent, and I haven't had as much time or energy to pour into my paintings as I would have liked to. Anyhow, I'm now officially on parental leave, which seem to be even more time-consuming. I'm gonna try to discipline myself and find time to paint whenever I can.

I don't know how many of my watchers read these journals, but I'd like to know if any of you would like me to maybe update these more often and write about my process and thoughts in general? I'm also wondering if any of you are following me on instagram/facebook. I tend to post wip-pics there if anyone is interested.

I find your painting very inspirative :) I wish you never stop making art, but I understand raising a child is kind of art on its own :)
Lycka till!

Congrats on your baby boy. Sorry about all the lol's, but your artwork is fantastic, some made me laugh, some were odd, and some were creepy, but I like it. It was refreshing to see. Thank you Daniel!!
