I’ve finally decided to give Adobe’s portfolio site “Behance” a try. I was skeptical about the site for awhile because I thought it was just an easy way for people to rip off each other’s work, but now that I’ve been using it for a bit, I’ve grown to love it as a source of inspiration. There are so many great artists displaying their work on there, just looking at their pieces makes me instantly want to draw. It’s like a Facebook/Twitter for visual artists.
Today I started a comic strip series about Maddie Bear. It lets me keep the characters going without the time investment of writing another full-length book. If I end up creating enough comic strips over time I might turn it into a comic book like Calvin and Hobbes, but for right now it’s just a creative outlet that I enjoy.
