I’ve been painting letters.
Ugh, I painted three doors today; they just kept coming out awful. AND then I… a little voice said,”these doors aren’t going to happen.” There’s too much detail and they don’t fit with the style of the book.
Sometimes I just create. These are the awesome days. Other days I think of creating art for the shop or Instagram. These are the horrible no good very bad days.
There’s that and the fact that not every piece is going to be awesome. Not every piece is going to be awesome. But it’s awesome practice. It’s important to create in a place that makes you feel like you just have to create. It’s important to know when to alter course.
Tomorrow I start the hand lettering part of my book.
