i'm in the same boat with you i guess. i despised abstract art most of the years where i was active with studies and surreal art.
i always thought that some crap on a canvas can't reach the works of the "old masters" and it's a shame that we see so much ugly abstract stuff praised.
but at some point i grew tired of strictly following rules in my drawings, needed a change and this is it. like writing notes everyday, it's not much but it helps me a lot.
crazy that other people even appreciate these, like you for example <: so, thank you for that!
