21 and Jaded

My name is Blake McLeod, I'm a twenty-one-year-old Fine Arts student attempting to capture a fraction of the world around me. I dabble with music and film but my sole passion is traditional art, such as drawing and painting. Here is a collection of things I've done, plus random shenanigans that make me chuckle.

Every once in a while you just need to observationally draw a face. Around 40 minutes. #myart #drawing #graphite #observational #portrait


If someone says “I love u” and you say “I love u 2” back, make sure you add “no Bono” so they know you mean that you love them too, not just the legendary Irish rock band U2
