Reflecting on your old work to check in with yourself and practice.
I watch a lot of trashy TV shows about finding love. The messiest, most dramatic cast members are my favorites. They flush diamond rings down toilets, lie about getting butt implants, and have explosive arguments in sex shops.
They often become outraged when their expectations aren’t met, reminding me of myself at the start of my art journey.
I desperately searched for an art style that might attract an audience, drawing only what I thought would get me followers. It was an unrealistic approach.
Reality TV isn’t what it used to be, and neither is an art career. Both can feel like failures when success is measured as likes, clicks, and follows.
My favorite reality stars aren’t the ones there to become influencers. The cast members who show up honestly and genuinely make the most compelling stories.
Speaking of stories, wanna play a fun word game and draw ducks withand me? Laughs and learning are guaranteed.
I share an older sketchbook in the video for paid members, followed by one I just finished to reflect on how my work has changed. Then I do the prompt!
