This weekend’s art festival was great. From shy I became outgoing, talking about my art to unknown or little known people. I drew portraits with portrait drawers who told me I was good. I sold a piece of my artwork and came back with 2 sketches and a manga painting, plus all the sketches I did during the festival.
I am starting to make a path for my future.
I set up a professional Instagram account for my art: https://www.instagram.com/artlanterna/
For the first time in my life, I will exhibit some of my artwork in my village during 2 days in September.
There is also an art contest, and I thought bringing all the paraphernalia to paint (water, brushes, cleaning paper, palette…) and using all of the aforementionned trying not to make a mess would be a bad idea.
So I’ve started practising with alcohol felt pens. I will practise portrait drawing because I think faces are what I draw best.
Wish me good luck!
I knew it would take quite a while to complete a project as colossal as WTJ by Keri Smith.
I started wrecking the journal at the end of last year and as for now I’m 80% done.
I like pages better than others and some instructions bother me but the good thing is it is left to your own interpretation so I can kind of “cheat”.
These are the 4 pages done in August so far:
After I finished IAACFTS
I thought about starting a longer comic based on the stories I make up in my mind until I fall asleep at night. I don’t know where I am going but I’m willing to give it a try.
