This is me practicing on new paper. It was going to be Wonder Woman and honestly, I knew I wouldn’t finish it. But…
I still managed to piss someone off by doing it. Had a lady loudly announce that there were children in the Starbucks and that I should be ashamed.”Sure” I told her, “sorry your kids have such a loud ghetto mother with low self esteem”.
“I’m not ghetto, I’m white!” Then the pieces clicked for her and she walked away angrily. Oh well…
I think people have such a terrible response to bikini art or human body art. Full disclosure; I’m not a fan of some of it either. I just assume that it wasn’t meant for me and keep it moving.
It’s as simple as that.
The good news is I got to break in my new scales of paper in relative peace and quiet. The occasional curious person.
Inktober is next month. A picture a day! Should be fun.
I’m trying to draw away a dark cloud that is trying to settle over me. I might succeed; it’s worked in the past.
There’s no guarantee that it will though. But motivation is motivation,and even though I try not to tap into negative emotions for my art anymore, sometimes it helps.
But you can’t stay there. It’s a loop and the only real way to break it is to do the things that you don’t feel like doing. Upbeat music. Time spent outside. Go online and listen to jokes or comedy clips…
The fourth of July weekend is usually the time to take off and enjoy your friends and family. Instead, my girl gets to watch me draw stuff like this. And my customers get to have a little relief. I hate splitting my attention. I wish I could draw all the time. Don’t worry though, it’s coming.
In the meantime, I get to do this as much as possible. Thanks for being along for the ride, guys.
