Artists You Should Watch

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 21, 2014, 4:14 PM


Lately I have had such inspiration troubles. It's hard working on art constantly for school and although I love it, I find it suffocating. It is nice to find artists you love and can draw energy from to continue. Here are some artists that have helped me through this!

There are WAY MORE than this, but it's some of the main ones. Of course I have all my friends who make art for me and write stories and play around in streams. Those are super refreshing too. However finding your inspiration gives you a reason, a purpose and should never be lost. If so, go to any lengths to find it again! I have learned that true rest and fun is the best way to keep teh flow going. I have lately worked myself into a corner never stopping, thinking if I kept going I could work better and have great work. In reality it has had the opposite effect and I have no idea what is what anymore. I have done my digging today into artists I love and seem to always return to. I print out their works and place them in my sketchbooks to have whenever I need them.

Remember, rest and fun before you run yourself into the ground and burnout. I have finally begun to see the hole I was digging and now I can start to get out. This work is actually far from my own and it neat to see for myself. Hopefully you'll enjoy seeing it too!

Of course! I just love seeing you experiment with so many various cultures and animals all the time. ;-; It's all so nice and the patterns you do. I certainly have issues being that patient.
