Just Experimenting

Kind of interesting looking

A Little Less than Happy...

The previous and above posts were done during finals time, if that helps put them in context.

I've found that a self-portrait isn't a depiction of how you look so much as it is how you feel.

Let the Summer Begin

School has been absolutely exhausting, but it's over. And about time too, I was so fatigued. My head was aching and my body had the chills all over. I generally don't get sick, so I was feeling pretty awful which... didn't exactly help me focus on exams. I'm still recovering two days later.

Despite the astronomical load of work I've had to do, I still managed to find some time to sketch (though I wish I could say the same about sleep).

Watch out for...

To a certain degree everyone has these thought tendencies but I believe we, as artists, are more susceptible to distorted thinking. Severe cases will fester unhealthy mentality about one's work and self. While it's one thing to be your own worst critic, it's another to be a self-condescending dictator. Be mindful, recognize these thinking patterns, and aim for something more realistic, but most of all don't forget to be kind to yourself.
