Lac Leman by DevonianFossil
Lac Leman
Switzerland's Lac Leman, called Geneva by the French and striking setting to certain events in Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein'.

This was drawn after a particularly nasty encounter with the only anti-american sentiment of the entire trip (The irony? I was traveling as irish, regardless of what accent I have.). It's hard to get harsh words out of your head even with a lot of distractions, but it was my last night in Switzerland. So I wandered over to the Jet d'Eau, picked a spot about half way along the pier/jetty, and started to sketch

And who would have known drawing the lake is the way to make friends in Geneva? Everyone who walked by tried to look over my shoulder or ask me about it. And there was even one guy who spoke no english but sat down beside me to watch as the sun was setting (The lighthouse eventually lit up, but it was too late to change that part). I'm not used to dozens of people paying attention to a sketch, but it was a much nicer memory to leave with.

The Cloud-Cloaked Alps by DevonianFossil
The Cloud-Cloaked Alps
I still don't know the name of these two mountains but they could be seen across most of the train route between Geneva and Luzern. Especially the one that looks like bites have been taken out of it's peak, it towered above the rest. There are towns along the lakeshore, but I had no opportunity to add them in the proper scale to these absolutely massive mountains.

I... think I finally made it.

Today I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Earth Science*, the first real step towards a childhood dream of being a scientist. I'm still pretty shell-shocked, I'm sure I'll have more to say later. I have promises to keep/And miles to go before I sleep.

*Geology, for any institution that doesn't have a strange naming scheme like mine.

Going pretty well, I enjoy drawing it but the hard part is continuing to grow my audience.

It can be hard to reach new audiences, but I think tumblr can make that a lot easier for you than deviantart. Perhaps urging people to reblog it (with credit of course!) could work? There's also different readers. I'm the kind of person who reads a bunch of webcomics in one fell swoop, usually when I come across the link out of the blue.
