Create because you want to

I’ve been sketching a lot of letters.

It’s always the ones that just happen that keep me excited.

I totally get the whole you gotta love the process. Should I be signing my work?

I have this habit of creating and sharing…everything. So there I go on society 6 going over all of my designs.

I parted ways with the ones that didn’t excite me, be it color or idea. Now to figure out the theme. To ponder over why. As an artist you change. Not because of season but because your voice and wisdom grow. Skills change. Yes so glad I painted with leaves today.

I wonder what tomorrow brings.

Build a tribe of 14,000. What was I thinking? Now I realize the most important part of building a tribe is to create. Not just create but really have something to say. To speak with the heart and soul.

This year I vow to create EVERY SINGLE day. I’ll paint and write every step of the way.

First project of the year is the love book….

Can’t draw right?

I can’t seem to draw Ellie right. I  keep trying and erasing. I guess tonight’s not a good day to draw.   I can’t seem to concentrate. My drawing feels to forced. I keep erasing  and erasing and ERASING…stuck in the same place. Do I draw my characters as I have? For some reason I’m  drawn to this historical vintage feel. I sketched clothes and animals BUT my drawing skills– wish I could just draw.

It was so much easier to paint trees. Wait …maybe I should take what I’ve learned from my Wise Trees book? Yeah I painted trees with Q-tips and melted crayon. It was awesome!

Note to self. Stick to the book deadline. Publish Wise Trees.  Publish Wise Trees. You’ve talked about it.Now walk your talk. Keep writing and creating. Keep making art. It’s all you can  do. Create your art.
