Still doing line-work. This is a bit of a throw back for me. Young and dumb… well I suppose the dumb still applies. It has been a while since I used this “handle” and now I just find it cringe inducing. I’m trying to keep busy though which is the important part.
I really just wanted to work on the background but wanted to put something in front that was simple yet interesting. I used to work on lettering for hours with no real results so I gave up on it. Now that I’ve been focusing on developing simple textures and lines I thought I would go back and apply that to my lettering. All-in-all I am happy with the result if not embarrassed by the content.
So as you can tell I’m very focused on process right now. I think that is both a good thing and a bad thing. I think I’m focused on process as a means to let myself do silly or bad drawings. I have a larger hardcover sketchbook that I abandoned after only drawing a few pages. Because it is a nicer sketchbook I feel like I need to do “good” drawings. I see the book as a finished art piece instead of a place to workout ideas. That was why I grabbed some leftover paper from work and made up the smaller sketchbook that I have been posting from. The smaller sketchbook has been good for me though. It has helped me regain some confidence, so much so that I have gone back to my hardcover book and picked up some drawings I had been working on. Perhaps some new pictures will be going up in the next week or two.
