So far, I have been reading and listening to self-help books. One of them is You are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth by Jen Sincero. She is one of the people who keeps me motivated in reaching my dreams of becoming an illustrator and storyteller. Before, I never thought that I could follow my dreams. My parents and my friends would tell me that art is only a hobby. The reality is that you can follow your dreams; no one is stopping you but yourself. I stopped listening to other people’s fears and listened to my heart. Now, I am figuring out how to sell my art online. I made this blog, signed up for Etsy and Patreon. I think that it is a good thing to start something even though you don’t know where it will lead you. I think that is what you call faith, faith in the universe that it will provide you everything you need. So, I will learn how to trust, even though it can be challenging.
So, for this piece, I got a quote that I like from Einstein. I like this quote because it tells me to not box myself in the things I am doing. This means that you are able to grow and keep learning new things. The materials that I used for this piece are
- Crayola Washable Markers (I have the 50 pieces)
- Canson Mix Media
- Copic Multi liner, sepia
- Gelly Roll, white
- Touch twin marker in skin white ( for the skin)
I post inspirational quotes on Instagram and Tumblr mostly everyday. I am thinking of making another Instagram for my other art styles. I want to know how this art style thing works. I don’t want to prevent myself from learning other stuff and box myself with a specific style, but somehow I am having a specific style. We will see, but so far this is where I am.
I am signing off, ciao 🙂
