Last year, I was really worried about making money, since I was jobless for six months straight. So I was really trying to find a niche for my art in the more commercial art world. But that didn't make me happy for many reasons
it wasn't until early this year that I learned about 'visionary art', something my college never taught me. I was immedietly drawn to it being a mystic myself. But I realize the fine line I walk on, since so many visionary artists are just laughed at by the mainstream art world. And it seems really hard to find advice on how to push this type of artwork forward. Thats where you guys come in! I wanted to start a new sketchbook to start fresh. (if thats not allowed, just let me know)
So I bought a sketchbook, and I started a different way to draw. Pen in my hand, no erasing, zero reference, and trying to keep my thoughts focused on what it is I wanted to portray. I wasn't trying to create a masterpiece, or even something I wanted to really share. Most of these drawings I've kept hidden in the dark for months. I only wanted to get something out of my head, be myself, and then use them as springboards to make artwork that I can show off!
But I also try to balance my right brained drawings with left brained technnical studies.
background, I use traditional mediums and enjoy oil painting the most. I want to eventually get into mixed media and fiber art. stay tuned, lots of crappy images to follow.
