Thoughts Are Always Welcome

I’ve been thinking… a lot… and positive things.

I always worried that people will judge my art in a certain way. I struggled with not being sure on whether I should make art to please my audince or not to care at all about anyone’s opinion because my art is my expression. I am still not sure what to do, but I am going to bed in peace tonight.

People are always going to judge you no matter what. That’s how brain works, it tries to save energy by finding shortcuts and jumping to conclusions. That’s our biology. We can try to reduce the judging factor, but it will always be there to some degree. Why build your own prison?

Today I felt free about sketching. It has never been easy to just sketch because I am an unhealthy perfectionist; I try to beat my own records.

Today I made a 5 minute sloppy sketch and it made me so happy. There was no pressure. I’m going to make art and succeed in this or something else.

Strangely, I feel great about future as well. I know I posses some great set of skills, and they are waiting to be put to use in a professional setting. Let’s make business.

And here is to Galliano. Despite everything he is being judged for, he is a great artist.

    1. Thank you. I mean, I will tailor the content a bit, but now I don’t have a fear of losing my true self in a process. Perhaps, I finally feel confident enough in myself?

      1. I hope so, because it doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you feel it is a true representation of who you are. Sometimes, as you have expressed, it is a negotiation between the viewer and the presenter. Confidence comes from the constant dialogue with yourself and the ultimate decision. Art is really about imposing a view. At times the perspectives change, for example, we reflect people back to themselves, but essentially, it all works out to be the same process. x
