Pinned post

Hi, y'all! I'm Alan - I'm a former photographer, former musician, and current techie who's getting back into those first two things

I used to play alto sax, but after some mental health stuff and medication I've switched to tenor. Lithium is weird

I love the idea of shooting with film and using a darkroom, but the overhead is too much at the moment. So, I'm digital for now

I don't really know how to end this so I'll just wish y'all a wonderful day

I'd crop this tighter vertically these days. When I find the original, I'll do that

Fixing the busted images on my blog after a site move and hit this one. It's one of my favorite music shots. (low resolution from 2006, but I still like it)

Do you remember how long it took you to learn to write when you were in school, and what that involved? Copying letters over and over and over while your hand and fingers strengthened and got used to the movements?

Drawing/painting/other-forms-of-crafting are no different. You're learning a new skill; give yourself space to grow and be patient while you learn. You might be bad at first but that's fine, you're allowed to be. Keep going. Practice is part of the process. 💪
