I did an Impulse sketch today that I really wanted to post; however, I don't have access to a scanner at the moment. So I dug through my old artwork that was in my portfolio for college and found an old Ult. Fantastic Four double page spread that I did last year from a Brian Michael Bendis script.

I've probably started at least a douzen or so other blogs before only to forget about them and let them fall by the wayside, but now I'm determined to keep this one going. So now to get this intro stuff out of the way...
My name is Rachael Simmons. I'm 18 years old and live in Lubbock, Texas. Although, this post is currently coming from Lakeland, Florida where I'm staying with my sister.
I love anything Batman related and I love comic books and art even more. My goal is to break into the comic book industry one way or another.
As of right now, I'm not going off to college. I'm taking a year off to study by myself and with my friends at the local Sketch Club in Lubbock. In my free time, I love to read(books and comics), draw, paint, meditate, cook, waste hours on the internet in the name of procrastination, and go out for coffee(I need that caffiene fix). I'm a self-described spiritualist, idealist, and hopeful romantic with horrible grammar and spelling(Which is why I express myself with pretty pictures and not words. :P). I spend most of my time at home drawing, sleeping, and playing with my dashhound, Peanut. When I do leave my cave, it's usually to attend the Saturday Sketchclub or another art event with my comic book friends. Right now I'm in Florida visiting family and friends and sleeping on the couch of anyone who will let me. :P<
I'm looking forward to posting sketches on this blog every other day and keeping it updated as much as possible. I have a few sketches I'm currently working on, so as soon as I get to a Kinkos and get my hands on a scanner, I'll be sure to post em'. I'm looking forward to this ride. This is it...
Welcome to my blog.
