Shawn Encarnacion

I love drawing. It's an addiction. I need to do it all the time. I think about it constantly. I'm always planning, always dreaming of what to draw next. I'm also really excited to be here at where I can share what I am learning in my journey toward being the best artist I can be. Grab a pencil, a pen or a Wacom tablet and join in on the fun today - I just can't keep it all to myself.
