Illustrator and designer, navigator of all things me. Candid, so ask for more details.
I just kind of stumbled upon your blog out of nowhere...I just wanted to say that even though you may hate your work and feel disconnected from it (I've definitely been there) you may not realize that people aren't seeing just a prettily drawn face. There is something raw and unnerving that you bring to them. You draw out their soul- you draw what you see. There is beauty, yes, but there is also pain, there is a story, there is depth. In the eyes, in the postures. They have attitude.
Thank you, these are the kinds of things I find motivating. To many begin and end with “this is beautiful” or “great work.” It’s hard to gauge what others see in my work and reading comments like this leaves an incredible feeling like my art isn’t as frivolous as i sometimes believe it all to be. Thank you, truly an appreciated sentiment.
