About - Darren Hester


This is my online sketchbook where I share drawings, paintings, and other creative experiments. My goal is to make something new every week and post it here.

“Instead of trying to make a single work perfect, create more work. It is only through constant creation that we can grow and become better. Experiment with your art. It can lead to wonderful things. Stop worrying about being perfect.”
