Well, kind of. I don't really consider myself an "artist" but I enjoy sketching, etc. and have a certain amount of natural aptitude that I could develop further if I put my back into it, "further" meaning just "further" and not "into soul-shattering self-expression or a lucrative career." I only sit down and put something together once in a very great while anymore. I'm just pleased when I can make things look like things.

Anyway, some example drawings/compositions and stuff. My aesthetic is kind of weird... I like the half-finished, rough, juxtaposed look, and I prefer mixed media, but I also like minimalism. Nothing I "finish" ever even appears polished, which is partially due to preference (and partially to ineptitude, and partially to impatience).

The last one is the most recent, and just a cellphone photo... once I'm fine with the level of detail the plan is to scan, darken the lines, print copies to experiment with and then add some watercolor highlights in red and yellow.

You are an artist by my estimation. Those are awesome. You should post that last one again once completed.
