Happy 2017, folks! 
So I'm going to try to make "focus" my theme for this year (as cheesy as that sounds). I've been all over the place with just... everything... and when I actually take time for my art lately (or in the past two years), I tend to sketch something as fast as I can, slap some sloppy colorwork on it, and get it out so I don't have to look at it anymore. It would give me a sort of quick fix and a slight feeling of accomplishment (I guess). In the end all I have is a gallery full of crappy unfinished looking stuff. I need to change that and actually focus on my work and finish it all the way through. I want to do the same thing for finishing my degree (non-art) this year as well as other aspects in my life. Lack of focus actually causes me to avoid anything that I think will be any sort of a time sink. It's been very frustrating. 

Anyway... I figured I'd share that. That and to update you all. :)

Does anyone else have any goals or resolutions for the new year?
