Ant Errickson  I'm just an artist trying to progress a little bit everyday. @sarrost keeps my nuts in her purse.

The linkage and kerning on the "e" "D" "E" could use some work for sure. I really should go through all of the kerning before I move into the next phase of adding more detail. I don't want to get all the way to a more finished looking piece and not have a good foundation. The bones need to be tidy and adjusted before then. Otherwise it won't look right then.

I got the rough line work and letter shapes of the larger size of create/destroy sketched up. It looks so good so far. I'm kind of scared to go any farther and potentially ruin it by adding too much detail to it. The problem is the style I have in my head has a ton of detail. I guess that means I'm going to have to jump in on it.

I really want to get a new tattoo. I was thinking of the work "create" on the blade of my right hand. That got me thinking maybe the word "destroy" on my left hand. Then I realized, I don't really destroy anything with my left hand,) since I even punch right handed) so then I was all "what if I got both on my right hand!?" Cause like my favorite hand has the power to do both. Then I started thinking they would be weird next to each other. So, I decided to combine them. I think I may just get "create" on my hand now though, and make this into a skateboard or a tshirt or something, or destroy it and not make anything at all.

Concept sketch I put together for a logo. Could be used for a debate team, tech group, or something in the educational realm. I could see this as a tshirt too. I think I may do a robotics one soon too.

If you don't get the dreams out on paper they disappear into the ether forever. Some from this dream have already died and won't return until who knows when. I tried to save them as fast as I could but they disappeared and I forgot them. These are the only survivors from this mornings waking dream that I could remember. I'm sorry little logos, come back to me agin and I'll give you a life.

Some more banner exploration. I'm trying to find simple variants that can be quickly translated to a more diverse variant by changing one line. Each of these banners has the potential to extend to ten more versions of that same "fold" once color texture and accent are added, that multiplies each banner times four. In theory this page alone could be 42 banners without the color adds. I plan on at least 10 color variants too. That's 420 banners right here! Wow! These are just few roughs sketches for my next design resource pack. I'm not really putting a timeline on it but the goal is to make a ton of basic banners with text paths and/or brush strokes so another designer can easily make editable banners of all sorts of shapes. Not sure how well that's gonna play out at the moment though. I have a game plan, hopefully it works out.

My morning routine for the past 2 weeks or so has been to wake up and have a cup of coffee, then read a page or two of @josephpatrickgorman 's Make Today Count as I am waiting for it to brew. Once it's finished, reads bit of @timferriss' the 4 hour work week. These two books are literally rewriting the way my brain thinks of each day and life in general. I may start throwing in a quick little morning doodle too though.

Working at home on this snowy day on some logo thumbnails. Narrowed these down to 8 versions. So I drew those up larger (can't show you yet, sorry) not a fan of the shamrock but I promised the client I would explore it a bit for due diligence sake.

Dragon Progress report. So Originally I was trying to color pencil this. Fail. Then I tried to Ink it. Fail. Then I thought, I could vector it, but that's what I would normally do. I wanted to try something different. So I tried digital painting. I've only ever actually done a few so it's a skill I'd like to get better at for sure. Here's where I'm at with it, still quite a ways to go though I think.
