Sorry; Just wanna add more to my artwork page.
Irrelevant: I’m mad at Mrs. Sharp cause she shows my moleskine sketches to her classes all the time.
Anonymous asked: How do get inspired to draw something? I can't think of anything to draw but I want to. Sigh.
It’s different for every artist since many have weird ways of inspiration. Some do it through research while others do it through daily observations.
Mine is a mix of research and random ideas I guess. I see something that looks interesting and think of how manipulating it in a way would look cool. Sometimes I don’t think much into my drawings, I just draw what I see or feel.
If you need help thinking of what to draw, try emulating other’s works. Not as much passing their work off as yours, but using your own technique to reach the same desired result. Drawings from observation are very helpful also!
Checked my email and I see
some lady named Deborah Brock e-mailed me four times about the Scholastic Art & Writing Competition with approved artworks from students in a list.
AND MY NAME IS ON THE LIST OF ACCEPTED WORKS!
AND SO IS ALEX’S!
I AM PRANCING AROUND MY HOUSE OKAY, PRANCING
I would sincerely like to invite the Table to the exhibition. It’s Saturday, January 29th at 5:00 p.m. in the Main Theater at American Heritage in Plantation, Florida.
Went to Nina’s Art Supplies today :D
Got a 19” x 24” pad of smooooooooth bristol and a white gelly roll pen. The white kind is one of the best for pen work on non-white paper. I remember Tim saying he wanted the exact pen forever ago, but maybe he forgot, idk.
Right now I’m drawing like mad in a new moleskine I’m breaking in…the inside cover’s ganna look amazing :3
Anonymous asked: what do you plan to do when you're older? I guess random specifics is fine
Learn and master all forms of art. Live through art school. Travel the world. Make and sell own artwork on shirts. Come out with a book with artwork in it. Get dreads and a British accent. Exhibit my work regularly. Breathe art. Be someone’s hero. Do some tattooing on the side. Decorate a house ceiling to floor with paintings. Collect all the different kinds of moleskines. Write a book. Make my favorite teachers proud. Inspire someone like past artists have inspired me.
Anonymous asked: So... you're a senior, right? So you should be starting your concentration in a couple months. Would you care to share your ideas?
And... are you gonna use photo references? I'm really curious.
I’ve had a couple concentrations in the past since I started taking AP Art classes sophomore year. My first concentration was trees, and that idea really flourished. It connected to my 2nd concentration, anatomy. The human body is absolutely beautiful, so you might want to look into that. Plus, medical illustration is very important and pays high in the field. Right now I’m thinking of covering pornography or acidic patterns as my next concentration. Pornography seems like a good subject to try and see how much I can push the envelope. And acidic patterns have always interested me, too.
It depends on what you mean by photo references. I don’t really adhere to the idea of taking a picture and making a redrawing of it as one’s own art unless you do something creative with it. Photo references are good as inspiration when you’ve reached a point in your art where you can create from imagination. People who begin drawing are more likely to copy to find their own style of art. Hope that helps c:
