Dear Artists!

Does any one of you want to draw my characters from my NaNoWriMo novel?


Sometimes I feel really pressured when people call me an artist or praise me on my art

It makes me somehow feel obliged to live up to it and to do more art. It makes me sad that I sometimes can’t. It pressures me because people think they see someone who’s really good at something. But art is just a part of my life. It’s not as big a part as I would like it to be. I wish it was all. But that’s not all I am. And sometimes it makes me sad that all people see is that. And that they call me fortunate. Because I don’t always feel fortunate. 

My life is so much more, and it so much harder than it seems because those pieces of art are only small successes that don’t even out the hard things in life. They only cushion them.

I’m sorry if this is a selfish post. I’m sure that some of you will unfollow me now. And I’m sorry for that, too. 


Artist’s rule #1

HYDRATE.


Pet peeve

When I’m trying to promote my shop for artprints, using images to illustrate what you can actually buy, and people reblog the images but not my promotion.

WOMP.

All the digital art equipment that I own, use, have owned or have used! EVER.


I’ve bought some of these in the Van Gogh Museum. I’ve got a set of 6 shades of grey. They are called PITT artist pens and are by Faber-Castell. I have no idea if I’m gonna be any good with them. If any of you have used them before, let me know?

I also bought a really nice moleskin artist journal.
