I was headed in a certain direction. Then I was derailed. And the crash is so hard. The recovery from this one is going to be slow. And it will be reflected in my work. Because, “art.”

Though I’m sure this image is neither original nor thought-provoking, it served as an outlet, as I experimented with certain drawing techniques in Procreate.

Raw and Overexposed.
Sometimes the ideas hit. Sometimes they miss.
Sometimes you need to create a “rut-buster,” to clear your head.
A week ago, my sister and I had a long day at the hospital. Longer for her than for me. And I sketched a shrunken head in my journal, and posted it on Facebook. To make a short story long, a friend liked the sketch. So I did what I do, and here’s the result.
Drawn in Procreate, on iPad Air 2.
Edited in iColorama and Mextures Apps.
Video created in Splice App.
Music: “Inspired,” provided by Splice App.
I am an artist. That means I can see myself however the hell I want.
Drawn in #Procreate. Rendered in #brushstrokeapp. Some fx (in the background) via the clone brush in #iColorama.
The latest to come tumbling from my fingers. Much of the work I do is a process of purging. I’m glad to be able to share this “purge” with you.
“How do you get to Carnegie Hall?”
“Practice!” Old joke, but it still applies. People constantly ask how I achieve such great light and reality to my analog and digital art. Short answer: PRACTICE. Long answer: Constantly challenge how the brain wants to see something, through regular and daily practice. I’m always drawing, scribbling, sketching and seeing.
HOWEVER, My goal isn’t to become a better realist. I’m hoping to relearn how to deconstruct what I see, the way I used to.
Just stick with me, kids… Watch what happens to my work. Personally, I’m dying to know how this all comes out!
