PART 3: Hand Drawing Projects
Ok, I'm going to drop the "part" naming.. lol.. ANYWAY... I am always looking for new things to come up with and use, as I'm sure everyone is lol... Well I had wooden discs, Corks, so why not draw on them!!! I love drawing patterns, scrolls, vines, leaves... I'm much more of a abstract drawer, I don't really like to draw things in great detail, unless it's a pattern, or scroll work. When I took drawing in college, I had to take figure drawing, and although I was semi-ok with it, I loved taking charcoal and drawing more of abstract figures. I feel like when doing that I was expressing more of myself rather than sticking to what something actually is, does that make sense lol?!?!
So Anyway.. here's a start.. There is a lot more to come, I really enjoyed doing these!! I am getting some greeting cards together, that I am drawing on, as well as some journal covers.. So I am excited...!!!
Oh and here's a quote I found, that I think really reflects what I was talking about above: "A painter paints the appearance of things, not their objective correctness, in fact he creates new appearances of things." by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner
I have been a graphic designer for almost 9 years now. I love the field and i love what i do. I've always been in the art field.. always doing something crafty, it keeps me happy!! I love anything nature, being outside, exploring, camping, hiking or just sitting outside enjoy the fall season... I just started selling my crafts on etsy a couple months ago, and just really starting to advertise with it. Its what makes me happy, being able to share what i enjoy making with people who also like it, is really exciting... if that makes sense lol!!
I love getting in touch with other fellow crafters and other artists.. you learn so much from one another.. we're not out there to beat one another in sales and exposure, we're out there for each other to learn from one another, and bounce ideas from one another.. There is so much creativity out there, we might as well share it with each other...!!!
