I just spent a little time trying to update my portfolio on here. I updated some of the older images, added some new ones, and threw out some junk. I definitely feel like I need to work harder. I want to keep doing the daily sketch to improve my drawing skills, but I also want to get more finished vector pieces done. 

Also, I started a new site with my twin brother Sean (seancor76), to sell prints and give updates of projects we're working on (like Atomic Moo). It's kind of a mess right now, and we're still working on it, but you can see what we have so far at www.murraybroscreative.com.

Also also, I'll be at Power-Con in Los Angeles on June 4th & 5th. It's a He-Man/She-Ra based fan convention (that's why all the sketches I'm doing lately are Masters of the Universe related—Look for finished vector pieces here soon). If you're around that area, you should check it out.
I guess we've just committed ourselves (my brother and I) to attending the Cherry City Comic-Con in Salem, Oregon. We're hoping to be able to promote our site/podcast/comic Atomic Moo up there. We've got a lot of work to do before then. I think we're in a little in over our heads... fuck it. You only live once right?
Alright, I saw Star Wars Episode 7. Why do I feel like I'm the only one who didn't like it? Eh... I don't know, maybe I am...
Sorry, I haven't been uploading my daily sketches. I've been doing them, just not uploading them. Mostly I've just been in a pretty bad funk lately, and been a little too stressed out. I feel like I'm coming out of it now, and thinking a little more clearly. Hopefully I can keep the uploads daily from now on. 
Finally got my Mac back today, so I can start scanning in my sketches again and uploading them. I've been keeping up with the sketches since I took it in for repairs last Thursday, but didn't have a way to scan them in. I'll probably wait until Saturday to upload the sketches.

This past year went by too damn quick. I'm kind of disturbed by that. Still, I managed to sit my ass down and draw for a little bit each day, which was my goal for my daily sketch. I've always enjoyed drawing, but it seemed like I was never getting a chance to do it (or I was just too fucking lazy). 


I thought doing the daily sketch would commit me to draw for an hour a two or day, and maybe help me develop some talent in it. Honestly, I don't know how much my skills have improved over this last year. I hope they have, but looking through the gallery I see I need a lot more practice. Which I hope to get by continuing to do a sketch daily. I feel like in order to develop some real talent, I should probably spend more time on the drawings. Maybe I can find some ways to budget more time for it.


I'd like to see some significant improvement over this next year, and really try to break away from my comfort zones. Maybe learn new techniques and tools, and study different styles. Master anatomy, and learn how to compose a good looking piece. I'm going to try and do my best with what time I have. I guess that's the best I can do. I hoping by the end of next year I can look back at this past year's gallery and happily cringe in horror at it. I think that's a worthy goal.
