I've Fallen out of Love with Illustrating People


I've fallen out of love with illustrating human figures, and that's okay. 

If you've followed the blog long enough, you'll know that I used to primarily illustrate people. Over time, I branched out to other subjects, but my love for the former has faded. I've fallen into the habit of only drawing self portraits at most, but that's become boring. I finally realized that my heart isn't into human subjects anymore, so I'm happily moving on.



I've been painting abstract (I hate that word?) most of all lately, and it's incredibly fulfilling. I created a large piece that hangs over my bed, and I've got a good handful of WIPs waiting to be completed. It's almost like I'm starting a new artistic chapter.

Sure.

  1. Indeed, illustrating humans can get boring in time! It's always good to explore new things and you did a great job with this abstract painting! Can't wait to see more shots of it. Have a lovely day! xx

  2. I suppose it's all part of a creative journey, right? Discovering what you do and don't enjoy, do and don't love etc. You know I lovey your illustrations, and so I'm looking forward to seeing more of your miniature creations!

  4. I've painted a few abstracts in the past and I think abstracts are beautiful. Gets you thinking outside the box.

  5. I think it's great, keep going with it. The new work has a very moody, atmospheric quality to it!
