I've made countless attempts at managing a blog, but this is another go. It took a while to start, but like most projects, I'm trying to learn to just START. Now that it's attached to my *professional* art website, I feel more accountable! I'm the type of person who writes and journals on the daily within my sketchbooks so blogging never seemed to be a complimenting force in my life more so than a redundant one. Not the case now! While my journals and diaries were more so for myself and those I allowed to read it, this blog will serve as a device to get to know me and my art a little more: with the intention to be read and read on a larger scale. How you got here reading this now, with the trail and thread of different taps on a screen or clicks on your mouse, I have no idea. But that's the internet!
I intend for this blog to serve two reasons:
- to get to know me, the artist
-the world around me from my perspective
-and to give more information/context of my art
But I don't want this space to simply be a newsletter.The blog could have just been kept at my art: work in progresses, sketchbook pages, upcoming or ongoing events. But I usually go to read a creators someone's blog because I'm interested in who they are as a person and how their minds work, in a sense. And while I consider myself an illustrator, I'm really interested in things such as: travel, food+drinks, lifestyle+wellbeing, fashion/makeup, books, writing+publication, etc. These are all things that inspire me and help me rest.
The next few posts will probably be art oriented but also help you guys get to know me a little more. I don't know where this blog will go, to be honest, or if it will go anywhere. All feedback about content is welcome!
