I love throwing shade.” – moi
This blog post is 19 days late. I wanted to write on the 1st of December how happy I am to finally be wrapping up my New Year’s Resolution to create art every day. There have been a couple of nights more than I care to admit where I just wanted to put something out.
But then there are those rare nights where I LOVE LOVE what I have done and just wish I had more time to put some more effort into the piece. I sketch, but wish to color it in Adobe Photoshop. I also know my work turns out different and for the better when I put more time into it.
I am not sure if my style has changed too much from day one. What I can say is I have a lot more confidence in my drawings. I love to draw cute things. I feel like I identified my style as simple and cartoon.
In 2018, I still plan to draw, but not be restricted by 24 hours.
This piece I didn’t have anything in mind. I started out thinking I wanted to draw a simple stocking and started out with the white rim of the hat. I then drew a face and knew I was going to draw a cute creature wearing a Santa hat. I thought maybe a brown bear, maybe a raccoon to be different, and it morphed into a panda bear. This piece is so simple, but I love it.
Thanks for reading! ❤
