A week ago, my sister and I had a long day at the hospital. Longer for her than for me. And I sketched a shrunken head in my journal, and posted it on Facebook. To make a short story long, a friend liked the sketch. So I did what I do, and here’s the result.
Drawn in Procreate, on iPad Air 2.
Edited in iColorama and Mextures Apps.
Video created in Splice App.
Music: “Inspired,” provided by Splice App.
I am an artist. That means I can see myself however the hell I want.
Drawn in #Procreate. Rendered in #brushstrokeapp. Some fx (in the background) via the clone brush in #iColorama.
The latest to come tumbling from my fingers. Much of the work I do is a process of purging. I’m glad to be able to share this “purge” with you.

Some albums inspire me or just help me get through the day. This is one of them. I’m working on a new project, but l’ll be finishing it while in waiting rooms or dealing with various interruptions. Not to mention plain old real life phuckery. This album has the affect of bringing me back to my main focus. Me.
“How do you get to Carnegie Hall?”
“Practice!” Old joke, but it still applies. People constantly ask how I achieve such great light and reality to my analog and digital art. Short answer: PRACTICE. Long answer: Constantly challenge how the brain wants to see something, through regular and daily practice. I’m always drawing, scribbling, sketching and seeing.
HOWEVER, My goal isn’t to become a better realist. I’m hoping to relearn how to deconstruct what I see, the way I used to.
Just stick with me, kids… Watch what happens to my work. Personally, I’m dying to know how this all comes out!
Sometimes artists have to remember we are also administrators. Personally, I despise the task of administration and self promotion. I get lost in the act of just managing accounts and fixing issues, that the concept of creating art gets lost.
However, my goal is to be supported by my work. My goal is to show my work, sell my work, and be supported in my work. In order to do this, I need to curate my work, be an administrator of my own site, and promote my work. So! Here we are. Back at Patreon, updating and posting.
Managing my website, my Patreon page and my Society6 store will be my weekly focused work. Updates and Live Feeds have been scheduled. You, as my Patrons, will only benefit from being able to view my posts and updates.
Thank you, if you are supporting me. Share my Patreon page and help me gain supporters, to keep my site up, and push my work along!
This is one of the ways I stay inspired. I keep journals and blank books with me, where ever I go. I have my favorite pens (Pilot Precise V5) with me. And I draw or sketch.
Stay inspired! ~ Gomi
Long time in coming, but I finished drawing a self portrait in Procreate. Screwed with it in iColorama, Mextures & Tintype apps. This appears to be the end of my 8 month slump.
At the end of May, my sister and I moved into our rather unusual apartment. My room is shaped like a giant kernel of corn. I’m not kidding. This is the view from my bedroom window during sunset. It inspired a mutual friend to dub my room: Barbarella’s Spaceship.
