And in that three word sentence I realized I was having such trouble because I was stopping the flow of thought, the flow of creativity by criticizing every word that came out of me. How can something flow when you judge it?
My writing took off from that day and eventually I found my voice and eventually I was able to write tons (and still do).
Well, I have realized this morning I am doing the same thing with my drawing. I love to draw. And I have a style that has developed over the last couple of years. It is a fun style and one I can express myself in. If you know artists you will very likely see the influence of my mentors (mentors who do not know me so they have no responsibility toward my work but mentors nonetheless because I study their work and learn from them).
So today I am going to try and just draw for the book I'm working on. The pictures I have done so far have a few good elements in them but they aren't right. They don't make me happy when I see them. They are forced. And that is not good illustration. So Lord Jesus help me get into that flow for this project!
I'll share one picture from it. I like the woman in this picture. Not sure if any parts of this picture will end up in the finished project.
