Artist's Statement

"Be Important To Yourself " Self-portrait. 2 pieces of 4"x6" sketchbook paper. Acrylic paint, watercolor pencils, pen, color pencils, and possibly other mediums.

"...and that honors that. sketchbooks... you need to be important to yourself. The best moments come when you don't think, when through multiples you find a creative process that isn't contrived or who's growth isn't stunted."

- something my Painting II instructor sort of said.

The basic gist is... the point of a sketchbook is to be selfish. To be a successful artist, you unfortunately have to be inherently somewhat selfish.

Be important to yourself. Don't be a cocky a**hole, but take the time to build yourself up as an artist and believe in yourself. To take that time, you need to draw regularly. Sketchbooks are excellent aids in that.
