Hi, I'm Jack.
Technically, this is my second DeviantArt account. I started one seven or eight years ago, but started graduate school soon after and never had the chance to do anything with it. I've long since forgotten the password and login, and was never able to find the emails where all that was listed.
I'm a sketch artist, primarily, working mainly in graphite and archival ink. I have various sketch books lying about the house, some dating clear back to high school, as well as more recent stuff like concept sketches of characters from my fiction writing. Any reticence I have about posting my art here stems from the fact that my pen and graphite work feels so... primitive compared to all of the slickly-drawn, computer-generated artwork out there. I've posted a few items, and will likely continue to post work occasionally, but I haven't decided if I'll make this a primary outlet for my art.
The primary reason I went ahead and started a new DA account, though, is as a way to contact other artists. I write a blog on WordPress called Sartorially Smart Heroines heroineimages.wordpress.com/
with a companion Tumblr at heroineimages.tumblr.com/
. The purpose of these blogs is to post and discuss smartly attired heroines in art, movies, games, science fiction, fantasy, adventure, etc. I've found that DA is an excellent place to contact artists about using their work for the blog. Since feedback on Wordpress is limited to those with an account, I'm also happy to use DA as a place for folks to offer feedback or make suggestions or requests for the blog.
Anyway, cheers and thanks for reading!
