paper allsorts, not licorice ones.
lately I've been thinking about ancestry, flying time, self absorption, changing directions, maturity, sadness, and the happiness and ease that one can only find with family.
It's time for things to change, and i am aware that they are, albeit at a slow pace. Natural progressions.
Today i drew an old woman for the first time in my life. It's so easy to become stuck and depend on drawing pretty pictures of pretty girls, and i would really like to branch away from that a little bit.
Being a girl, a girl who unashamedly enjoys vintage dresses and pastel miniatures, I'm not going to ignore that subject matter completely, but i do feel that there is a more mystical, darker and sadder side to everything which it is time for me to delve into. I would like to combine the two. Nerdily enough, I've got plans to draw pictures of all the men who i like watching on tv: Donald Draper, Stephen Colbert, Stephen Fry, Harvey Levin, Heston Blumenthal, Roger Sterling, Mike Rowe. ( i like tv.)
But i also wanted to challenge myself this week. So I am asking you, members of this strange and vast internet land, to help me. please leave a comment and suggest something/someone for me to draw. (but be kind!) If my hands will permit, I'm willing to attempt to try everything.
bits and pieces of things on paper. old and new. :
