I'm Alive!... Again.

It's been a while since I've posted here. I've mostly been posting to my Tumblr account, but I'll try and continue to post here when I can.

Here's a link to my Tumblr: cachava

Here are a few things that I've been dallying with lately. As always, thanks for visiting!

Most of these were done for fun, or for the #sketch_dailies happenings over on twitter. Check it out if you've got a minute!

A Gift

Did a little personal drawing for myself over the weekend. Here it is! It's called "A Gift"

I have to say I'm feeling immensely grateful for all of the love and support in my life right now. My attempts at pursuing art and adulthood have not always been easy (and still aren't), and I know that I would not be where I'm at now if it weren't for the generosity and love of others. So, thank you everyone.

Okay, enough of the emotional stuff. Here's the drawing! Thanks for stopping by :)

Here's the line drawing also:

You Cheetah!

Here's a cheetah character that I designed recently for a class.
She's a young, proud but kind cheetah, looking for some mischief and adventure.

Here are some studies and concept sketches:

Next, a turnaround for the final character:

Aaaand a digital painting for color/environment:

Character designing is so involved and so much fun, more of this to come!

Thanks for stopping by :)

I'm Alive!

Hi everyone! And sorry for the lack of recent posts!

Lately I've been doing a lot of sketching, and have been using Tumblr and Instagram as a platform for sharing those sketches.

If you'd like to see what I've been up to, you can see that stuff here:


I've also been doing a lot of painting practice! There's a new group that's popped up on Facebook called Daily Spitpaint, link here, where every day several topics are announced, and from those topics you paint quick, 30 minute pieces. The rules are you can't go over 30 minutes, you must stick to the topic, and no photo textures are allowed. This has been insanely difficult for me, but such an amazing practice opportunity! Here are some of the ones I've tried my hand at so far:

"Discovery"                                    "White Moose"

"Swamp Creature"

"Witching Hour"

I'm gonna keep trying these, and hopefully they'll get better and better! If you get a chance, check out the facebook group - the work in there is amazing!

Thanks for viewing :)

Meditation & Cats

This is the story of what happens when I try to meditate at home:

sitting in my apartment, on my zafu cushion...





 *raging useless cat anger*

 Eventual submission to the will of the cat,
and realization that cat is way more zen than I am.

adoption of cat petting into my meditation practice.

The End!
