Dear sweet people,
I know that I haven't been active here for quite some time. I just wanna tell you that the reason for that is not that I've given up drawing. It's quite the opposite, I'm producing more work than in the last three years. My artistic confidence is growing again, and I'm learning a lot of new techniques and approaches, which I'm very thankful for. And I'm even more thankful for the swell company, the people I study with are quite inspiring.
The thing is, the work I'm creating now is vastly different from everything I've posted on here, and it's gotten to a point where I just don't know how to approach uploading and presenting it on here. I'm not sure if it fits, the respective goals of the new artwork are so different. It's less polished, less finished, less digestable. I want to post it here, but I'm just not sure in which way I wanna do it, what to say, what to write, if I even want to say or write something.
I also feel like I have changed, as an artist and as a person, since I started studying. To be precise, I'm still changing. So while I have fond memories of this place, it also feels a little bit like clothes I haven't been wearing for a couple of years.
I guess what I wanna say is:
- I'm not dead.
- There's a ton of great work I wanna share with you.
- When I come back, there's probably gonna be a complete overhaul.
Other than that, I've been doing what I always do. I watch and observe, silently. I take long walks and I listen to music and I ask myself what my place in the world might be. Only thing now is that I feel a lot closer to it now.
I sincerely hope you are well.
