Thats me wincing at you. This is my first officail blog post those previous ones were tester blogs I admit. So now we´re getting to know each other I´ll tell you some more about who I am and what I´m about. Perhaps your more of a visual person (which is most likely the case as your visiting a Printmaking/Illustration blog) in which case I´m loosing you already …PLEASE WAIT!
And I´ll tell you for why (welsh accent)..
- I will try to keep my words to a minimum.
- I will try to include a …..wait for it…..COMIC STRIP for the fun of it.
- I will include pictures of my Art of course.
- Possibility of Vlogs… yes video blogs woohooo
So to tell you how I gravitated towards art from as far back as I can remember Art has been my “thing”. I remember snapshots from my childhood of times when I was encouraged in that direction. One day in school when I was around 7-8 a teacher ( whos was just awful btw) decided to do some art with us and he told me something Il never forget ” draw what you see, not what you think you know”.
That has helped me alot and I´ll give you examples of some early analytical drawing in upcoming blogs. So basically drawing a subject I can see, I can handle , but now as I move towards illustration I am hoping to be able to capture the crazy dreams I have in my head. If I can dream it surely I should be able to draw it, no? Well this blog amoungst other things will take me on that discovery and I hope you find it interesting.
