Swimming in Circles
Lately I spent a lot of time listening to Mac's new album and thinking about people we lost too early. He inspires me a lot, I can't stress this enough. I just felt like I had to draw him again. RIP Malcom. RIP Philipp.
This is Korilan, he’s my kitty that came to me in a dream once upon and time and he’s been with me ever since in the back of my mind so today I decided it was a good day to draw him, there are some similarities between him and my real life cat but.. obvious differences too . . .
I once attended a writer’s workshop where we were asked to write a poem inspired by a word. We were given 30 minutes to compose a piece, and then asked to share what we had written to the rest of the group.
I spent those 30 minutes agonizing over what I had to say, writing and crossing out every word I had jotted down. It was the tone, no, the wording. It was the rhyme and rhythm, the flow. Nothing came out the way I wanted it to. My voice had vanished. Why couldn’t I just write something down?
When it came time to share our compositions, I sat in shame, not having written anything to share because I spent the whole time crossing out everything I had written. One man looked at me kindly, empathetically. “You didn’t allow yourself to draft,” he said softly. Ah.
We are our own worst critics. The pressure we feel the most comes from ourselves more than anyone else. It’s easy to fall into the mouth of that perfectionism monster. If you find yourself on the precipice of that deep, dark hole, step back. Remember that you are human, and you are a culmination of drafts. Allow yourself to do what you do most naturally. Draft. Be iterative. Try, test, and try again.
Stranger Things season 3 fan art. (if someone knows me personally they would know I'm a huge fan of the show stranger things😂❤️)
I finally finished it, I've been keeping this one aside for a longgg time 😂
I was going to do a boring study of the scene but, then I ended up choosing this instead
