To create original cartoon illustrations every weekend as a form of craft practice and self-discovery.
I'd closely study my heroes works until I can replicate it and evolve my style from there. I respect the concept, 'everything is a remix' as so many artists, writers and creatives grow from certain sources.
During my birthday, I was healing from a couple of ligament tares when I decided to draw in bed. Since I was in one spot, might as well create and have fun doodling my favorite characters.
This was the moment that set off my decision to keep sketching and keep making art that I like. And I’m very proud of what I’ve done so far.
There are so many artists out there with their amazing works and I was just getting back into drawing again. When doubt seeps in, I remind myself of what Elizabeth Gilbert advised from her book, ‘Big Magic’ …
“You can measure your worth by your dedication to your path, not by your successes or failures.” - Elizabeth Gilbert
The activity is giving me balance from work, university and freelancing. It helps me create what I want with only my expectations to feed. Moreover, there has been inquires for personalised artworks from the UK and Australia. I guess people like what they see!
