So you are wondering if I have lost my mind with the title of this blog post, well maybe I have! You see I signed up for this online workshop by Andy Skinner entitled "The Book of Ruination" and I have been so caught up in learning new techniques! For some time now I have admired his work, so I was pretty excited to start and finish this project! Now I won't tell you about the technique out of respect for Andy, but I can tell you that if you like what you see, sign up! This man does some incredible work and remember any technique can be applied to any style! Here we go and I will share what I feel comfortable with!
