Hello beautifuls, it's definitely been a while.
Thanks for staying with me on my borderline hiatus this summer, I know I was pretty inactive, but life got pretty crazy. I've definitely been having a lot more artist block problems that I have in the past, which is unbelievably frustrating. Especially with the collaboration that I've been working on with
, which had basically been at standstill since early July. In fact, the portrait I just finished and posted of Jake Jones ( f1utterby3.deviantart.com/art/…
) was a product of my procrastination on every other project that I'm supposed to be working on. I'm very very happy with the way it turned out, but I know that I still need to wrap up my other projects as well.
On a brighter note, I've been experimenting with my collaboration piece and tonight I think I figured out what direction I want it to go, which you can check out here: www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi…
. I tried to approach this piece by assuming that I would make my drawing and completely overlay it with 's gorgeous painting, but I think that this new take has a lot more integration, which I think is my goal. Anyways, I should have it done in the next week if everything goes as planned.
Another reason I was unproductive this summer was because I went to Italy with my soccer team (!!!) I had never been to Europe before, and so it was such an incredible experience. I've posted the photographs that I took on my flickr, so feel free to check them out: www.flickr.com/photos/dont-loo… . Some of them might also make an appearance on here, but I haven't decided yet.
I really hope to get back in the flow of creating art again and getting in touch with my inner creativity, so hopefully this year will be a little more successful as the fall and winter approaches. Thank you again for your continued support, and I'll do my best to be more active in the coming months!
