What can I say? I love my ink. This one is not a new piece but I haven’t really shown it off, I also love the sumi-e paper I was working on because it’s very playful (read: difficult to control) and it’s excellent playing up the textures of the ink mixed with the water. I hope this princess will guide you through November and keep you safe, inspire to dream yet not to dwell on unfulfilled dreams. See you in December.
October was a very busy month for me, so is November. In December I’ll be able to post more art, but for now – here is my Halloween-art that I managed to create between cold mugs of coffee, freelance and children with runny noses – the illustration is quite big and drawn with ink using a steel nib pen and color in Photoshop using a wacom intuos pro tablet.
I really miss drawing, I miss creating my own characters and letting my mind wander off to mysterious places, but all things has it’s own time and the benefit of being a 30+ woman is realizing there is no hurry, there is no hidden deadline in your own projects. If you wait, things fall into place. I guess it all differs, but because I’m usually working at a manic speed and don’t have to worry about not finding inspiration and because I don’t have doubts in my work-ethics I really have to learn to balance the other way around – don’t stress, some things are too damn great to be limited by the small breadcrumbs of time thrown in my Now – because I know I have more time Later, Later is the way to go.
