I mentioned on Tuesday that my life is really hectic right now. Any creative will agree that life translates in your art. I've been in a weird place with my illustrations lately. I don't hate them, but I'm not satisfied, and I'm bored of the characters I've been drawing for years. Instead of falling into a complete slump, I decided to step back for a few days and breathe. I thought about what I wanted to do, and what I wanted from my work.
I really want to work on some oil and acrylic paintings through Fall and Winter. I don't sit down with those mediums enough, because (obviously) watercolor is preferred. I'm not sure what style exactly, but I haven't really sat down in my floor with smelly paint all over my arms and legs in awhile. I also want to focus on quality over quantity. This is something that I always try to live by, but I had fallen into a routine of trying to do a specific amount of pieces for a specific time frame. It would've made perfect sense if I was on a timeline for jobs, but this was all on me.
As I type this, I'm asking myself why I'm saying all of this in a post. Take it as a diary entry. Take it as honesty. I don't know. Fall is like a breath of fresh air to me, and I feel like I can start over. I can handle things.
I'm styling pieces from PPZ Lingerie on Polyvore right now. Check those out here.
