This is a test to see if this blogging thing works.
If you are reading this than you may have probably surfed back through many sketch entries. To start I should supply the 5 W's... Who, What, Where, When, and Why.
WHO... My name is Thomas Thorspecken.
WHAT... This is a place I will post daily sketches.
WHERE... I find myself living in Orlando Florida after a 10 year stint of working with Walt Disney Feature Animation. Disney closed the studio since they feared that people would only go to films produced with a computer. These last few years I have been rediscovering my own artistic vision. I have been using the computer more and more in my daily work. I just bought a tablet PC, and I will be posting sketches produced with that as well as sketches done by traditional means of pen on paper. That way I should over time figure out which medium works best for the work I do on location.
WHEN... there seems no better time to start then at the start of a new year.
WHY... Of late I have become more and more fascinated with artists sketch blogs online. I have been lurking and learning from those artists entries. This blog then is my way to join that discussion and perhaps a visiting artist will learn from my mistakes and triumphs.
