Another small update from me! School/uni has started and even though I’m in classes only two days per week the next two months, it’s already busy busy busy haha. But I still try to find the time to create things.
Currently trying to get some bookmark designs done. Most will use old images, but currently working on a new image too, yay. =)
I’ve also started making rings with images. Well I only have three, only one of them using a drawing of mine haha. I quite like it though. =D
And one with some text (though I can do other text too, if someone would like that).
Both available in my Etsy shop if you’re interested. Just click the photos. =)
Hey everyone! I wanted to thank everyone for showing their support on my last journal, when I mentioned my lack of inspiration and the horrible artist’s block I was in. Reading those supportive comments really helped me to not feel too down about it all. So thank you!…
While I was in my artist’s block, I also started doing something completely new to me: making earrings. I found it to be a very peaceful and fun way to pass the time, something that could take my mind off the lack of art I was producing. Though I’m still very much a newbie when it comes to making jewelry, I decided to put some that I’ve made in an Etsy store.
But of course I’m still drawing as well. Recently uploaded two more works, and I hope to make some more soon. Had some eye surgery on Friday which I’m still sort
I’m sure we’ve all been there many times. You have lots of free time that you can finally spend on your own stuff… but then that blasted artist’s block shows its ugly head and completely prevents you from creating anything.…
For the last month (and longer) I seem to have been cursed by this. There is a severe lack of inspiration. Maybe a lack of motivation too. Where you do want to create something, but you just can’t get yourself to do it. I think that one of my problems at the moment is that I don’t really know what technique and what style I can use any more. I guess I feel a bit lost maybe.
I’m desperately looking for inspiration, for something that will give me that spark I need to get back into art and to create images. It’s been so long since I created anything and I really miss tha
Hey everyone! Just to let you all know I finally got my Master Degree! I can now call myself Master in Graphic Design. Yay! =D It’s been a long and difficult four years, but I’m happy I did it all. Now the next step is teacher training, the studying never ends haha. =)
For anyone interested, I uploaded a digital file of my book on my blog, which means you can flip through all the pages of the book and read it. Sadly the text is in Dutch, so unless you speak Dutch, the text won’t mean much to you heh. But you can still look at the images. =P
Lastly, I set up my Etsy store, yay! At the moment there’s not that much in there yet, but I’m hoping to put in more items/drawings/prints at some point. So feel free to browse through my store. =)
I know it’s been a long time since I last updated my journal here. And it’s also been quite a while since I last uploaded some art here, apart from those few linocuts. The reason for this is that I have been very very busy with my Master degree.
However, I can now safely say that all that hard work has paid off! The year is pretty much over. Yesterday I had to present my project in front of a jury, and it actually went pretty well! I got no criticism at all, just nice comments and even praise from one person! Now all that is left is our exhibition this weekend and then my graduation next week. Excited! =D If you’re interested, here are some (blurry) pictures of my project, which is a picture book about a foster child and her new foster family. =)
So I decided it was time for me to join in on the blogging hype… even though I missed the hype train by many years I think. =P
But yes, I’ve stored up my own blog, where I will post my work progress and sketches and random art rambles etc. Or at least that’s the idea. I don’t know how often it will be updated, or if maybe I’ll just forget about it (though my boyfriend said he’d pester me to keep updating it haha)…
If you want to know what I’m up to these days, feel free to follow me on my blog, or leave a comment in there from time to time (once I post something interesting). =)
