I absoloutely love your artwork,ive actually referenced you in my a level and uni coursework twice, but i was wondering if there is any information to what you actually use to make your art work? Im still trying to find my personal style myself but i think im actually more illustrative than anything else, im mainly using fine liners and water colours, but i wanna start using several different medias. Any tips?
My first drawing professor worked hard to break the habits of her students. If we were uptight and held our pencils near the tip she would hand us a wooden dowel with a drawing instrument taped on the end and make us draw with the paper on the floor.
She would make us draw with food products. Or if we started to get comfortable with a certain medium she would push us to try another.
What I’m saying is: try everything. Don’t be afraid to mix mediums. What works for one artist won’t work for another. And at some point you’ll get into a rut if you can only use one medium the same way each time.
So push yourself and strive to find what works for you instead of imitating the language of another artist. You’ll be better off in the long run.
(I’ve used everything from chalk pastel to root beer to acetone and laser printed images. Not everything turned out perfect but I learned a lot that way.)

That feeling never disappears. The only thing you can change is how you think about your life. That you’re capable of anything if you’re willing to work hard as hell for it. OR. You can sit back and do nothing. You can try to spend all your time trying to please your friends, lovers, and the “real adults”. It’s in your hands.
Nobody knows what they’re truly doing. Don’t let the “real adults” fool you. Your life is yours. Now go.
Push your limits. Do things you’re afraid of. Do things that scare you. Learn to not let fear control you. Go after what makes you feel like you’re lit up! Learn to love yourself even when you fail. How else will you learn? Failure isn’t embarrassing. It’s a triumph. You tried and learned…
Conversations about art between peers is one of the best experiences ever. Online between friends, at gallery shows, exclusive dinners afterwards. I’m soaking it in. So thankful. I’m glad to be getting to know you. You know who you babes are.
