Thoughts from sdcc. I’ve met so many great people here that have really inspired me to step up my game. Got some great critique from artists and know kind of what direction to start working towards.
But I think some of the best advice I got this year was from a great guy I sat next to when volunteering. We talking about passion and art and skill and being nervous. He told me that it’s fine to be nervous, but don’t ever let that stop you from talking and showing your work and meeting new people, or even doing things that seem scary. You can’t ever backtrack! You only grow from doing hard things. Even if the person ends up not really jiving with your work, that’s ok!! You’re not in it to please everyone, because that’s an impossible task. Do what you want to do and show the world!
I really needed to hear that right now. Wonderful advice.
Hey guys! I’ll be peacing out for the week to head to SDCC! It’s going to be such an adventure, and I wanted to know if any of you are going. If you are, look around for me! Beeecaaauusseeeeee I’ll be carrying around some free prints. Yep, you heard me right! If you run into me and ask for a print, I’ll let you have one! I’ll be carrying around about seven different prints, so you’ll get to choose! come find me! I have a bright orange “cartoon” bag and look like this….
Artist fact of the day: It takes me a bit to get a new sketchbook once I’ve finished the current one….and during those two or so weeks I always get into an art slump. Sketchbooks are so important! It’s like daily stretches for your creative…ness.
Do you have any in process videos during the creation of your work? I know I’d be one of many who’d appreciate the insight
Oh! What a great question! I don’t have a process video or anything of the likes right now, but I’ll get right on that! I can say that my process is pretty messy…but if anyone really wants to look at it I’m chill with that. :>
Congrats conylu and awizardshouldknowbetter for being the two winners of the print giveaway! And thanks again to all you guys out there who follow! I’ll do another print giveaway at another mile marker! :>
Question. Are any of you guys going to San Diego Comic Con? If you are let me know! I try to go every year and this year I’m going to carry around some mini prints to give to anyone who wants to find me on the exhibition floor! I’d love to meet and say hi to anyone going!
