Little doodles

I love doodling, I find that it is one of those times I get in “the zone”. Time seems to dissapear and all my worries and thoughts along with it. I’ve found I love doing small doodles on envelopes originally for letters to my niece who lives kind of far away. She likes to draw too and I love decorating packages too. So here is my sketch, not finished yet but will post pics when I’m done with it. For now my time is short to post this but I’m excited about these adorable envelopes.😉

Thoughts on doubt…

There are a lot of people out there who think they can’t draw at all. I always encourage people who say they can’t draw,  to try!

It seems at times that it’s easier to have more faith in other’s abilities than your own. 

So ,I’m sitting here this morning after breakfast in my chair with my little doggie and I’m trying to ink in a sketch and I feel like all I’m doing is messing it up. I have doubted at times my ability to draw but then I’ve had times where I think,  I can draw!

 I have always focused on portrait type stuff, realistic.. but now I’m going to try to go into a cartoon direction. 

I’ve been trying to look at cartoon expressions and I did this rather quick sketch putting all these different facial parts together. This is what I have in ink and charcoal. 

I need to improve on many things but I don’t like the idea of always comparing my stuff with other artists. I can’t because it would drive me nuts! How can you be happy with your own work when you’re constantly comparing yourself to others and always falling short because you’re never going to be able to draw exactly like someone else all the time. So yeah, I say.. life is hard enough, right?! If you love to draw and have fun doing it, why add so much pressure on yourself to the point where you become miserable. So that’s my drawing for today I hope you come back tomorrow and see my next one. I’m not entirely thrilled with this one but that’s not the point this blog is not to Showcase my masterpieces because I don’t have masterpieces. I’m a work-in-progress as I believe everybody is even professional artist are…they’re still growing and they’re still striving to grow as an artist. To become even better and whatever ‘better’ might be in their mind. I just don’t want to copy everybody else’s style…oh I’m trying to find my own style. 

So, in other words just draw and be yourself and try to learn how to be okay with them.

Nice to meet you.

Hi, my name is Kim.

 I love art of all kinds. I love to draw ,paint, sculpt ,crochet & do paper crafts. I’m starting a daily blog about drawing. It was my first love and you know what they say about first loves. Lol I will be posting my current work. I’ve been a little out of practice and that’s putting it lightly. I haven’t drawn seriously in a few years and when I say a few years, that could be about 10 or so… maybe, I don’t know. This is meant to be a challenge for me and just another outlet. I want to grow as an artist and my drawing has a good way to go. I’d also love  to meet others who have the same interests who love art and love to draw and just to become a part of the community and maybe even become an artist full-time and be able to sell my work. That’s me in a nutshell. I’m just a girl who loves art and it’s always been my dream to be able to make a living doing something I love! 

So here is my first completed drawing. It’s my interpretation of someone else’s owl. It’s always been a challenge to do originals for me…But that’s something I’m going to be working on. 😉
