Last week the challenge was to create some bouncy lettering. The holidays are here so of course I had to come up with an awesome quote. One lunch afternoon I drew this out.
Just a pencil, some awesome graphic paper, markers, and 2o minutes.
YEAH okay doubt, I’m not sure about this either. I think about all the artists. I love watching them work. Wow how do they do it. Everything from the idea to the sketch is amazing! THEN they go an call their sketch messy… call it a ROUGH sketch. I’m thinking WHAT?
Don’t Compare. They’ve had tons of practice.
I felt like I had a good idea but again my SKILLS were hiding and seeking some other artist.. My etsy shop deadline is in 2 months. Am I really an artists or am I fooling myself? Will I be ready for my etsy shop? Is an etsy shop a smart move right now? That’s when it hit me. YES I’m an artists BUT I have to keep working and what’s that word HABIT. Yes work on my art and learn from my mistakes. Problem is I always feel like I’m making mistakes…always waiting…always hoping….always dreaming and I know it’s coming. I see it and I feel it or do I?.
I DO! So I’m looking SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW …and taking notes. I have to hold on and focus on the good! I CHOOSE to look at all the wonderful progress I’ve made. I mean I know what I did wrong and how to fix it. That’s got to count for something.
OH! The brush lettering should be thicker. I’m on a roller coaster.
Every story is filled with mistakes, fears and an even bigger desire to persevere.
-nothing is impossible.
