african-artist's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Born in Africa
Grew up in Wisconsin

I grew up loving the culture and the texture of Africa, enjoying the feeling I get when thinking of the relative wilderness and unknowns of the continent. I want to capture that wilderness in my drawing and paintings, and turn over a new leaf artistically. I like the work I did before, but this is a whole new adventure.

Hey all! Hope everyone is having a productive, safe, and healthy start to their new year and their holidays were joyous!

Heads up, since I started school, drawings posted here will definitely be at a low for now. I apologize to everyone, and for the moment I'm glad I don't have any open commissions.

I have three heavy duty classes: Anatomy & Physiology 1, Medical Terminology, and Sociology. They're hardcore, involve hours of studying, and I need them all, so I'm taking them very seriously.

You may remember my anatomical drawings? I have quite a few of those, made already for my A&P class, so I may or may not be putting them up here. If any of you want to see them, let me know!
