I’m still alive!

It’s been quite a while since I last updated my website! One of the reasons for this is that I’m still a little undecided as to whether I’m going to keep my current website, or move to a different one. I have to jump through many hoops (not literally) to get my artwork on my website and have it look acceptable. The color profiles on the images disappear and I have to make odd adjustments to the artwork so they look okay on certain computers (on other computers such as mine they look very different). It’s a big hassle. I’m figuring some things out and hopefully I won’t have to worry about loss of color and quality anymore.

In other news, I am going to have access to a scanner again (I really should buy one soon) and I will be scanning some art soon. Also, I’ve been studying perspective and reading a lot of graphic novels lately (And I’m brainstorming some ideas for an original graphic novel of my own). Stay tuned for more art/updates!

Welcome To My Art Blog!

The beginning of artEverything has a beginning. This is the beginning of my art blog and portfolio.

I’m John VanHouten and I have a lot of things I would like to talk about with you in the future. Art is a huge part of my life and I can’t think of anything that I would rather spend my time thinking about or doing. If you are here it means that you are either interested in art or you are at least a bit curious about it. Be on the lookout for interviews, reviews, inspiration and more! While you’re here you can check out my portfolio too. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to comment below or contact me directly. I look forward to sharing with you and talking with you.

Is there anything specific that you would like to discuss?
