It has been 13 years since I started drawing and I thought it was time showcase my work in one location. I haven’t completed a large number of pieces but I have pulled all my art I have created since I started in 2005 and posted most of them on my new art gallery page. You can see my progression through different subjects as well as the mediums. While, I did start with graphite (lead pencil) and the coloured pencil, I have been spending more and more time with the Procreate app on the iPad Pro. I love using the Apple Pencil and the ability to mix different kinds of media on the same virtual canvas. I also had a chance to play with spray paint on an old family milk can. I encourage everyone to explore their creativity
In most every case, I work from a reference photo. I start with a rough/light sketch and then bring in the layers regardless as to whether it is graphite, coloured pencil or digital.
As I create more pieces, I will post them on Instagram (@Mike_Hendley) as well as on this new page.
I hope you enjoy!
