Monthly Highlights

Every month, I will take one art piece and talk about the process of making it. While these monthly highlights started as bonus material for subscribing patrons on Patreon, for me, they became exercises in nonfiction writing and fond remembrances of my time in art school.

Below are several essays on art for your reading pleasure:
