This blog circles around my present art practice. After a long time of trying to avoid it for fears that I’d never make money at it, that I’d lose my eyesight, that I’d develop tremors, you name it…I’ve pushed myself into taking art classes. This is with a serious intent of refining my skill, and the someday-one-day-hope of becoming a Graphic Novelist. I’ve also thought of the possible job of being a freelance illustrator, especially where it comes to kids’ fiction.
I have an undergraduate degree in Creative Writing, which isn’t really that practical if I don’t intend to be a professional Editor. As things stand, I haven’t written fiction in quite a long while, for more than one reason (which would probably be too much to touch on, here). However, I’ve found that art is something else both creative and expressive that I can do, and do well. It also generally does not come with the tension and obsession of managing a dramatic manuscript, which I’ve found in my own practice.
I’m hoping to get some experience with scriptwriting in the near future, though at the same time I want to experience all the art I can, as fast as I can. But time only passes so quickly, and I can’t have the next seven years done yesterday (nor should I want to). I just find myself with an enthusiasm for this which is rare, in me.
Anyway, have a look around, though know that I’m keeping this blog majorly to track my own development. I’ve found that things go awry when I start worrying too much about the numbers of Likes and page visits. I’m also a fairly shy person by nature (which is likely why I’m expressive in writing and art), so please don’t be surprised or offended if I don’t respond immediately to comments. 🙂
I think that’s it! Have a good time — there is a menu to the right which will enable you to see my posts. And remember always that kindness is a virtue. 🙂
