Haven't been dancing lately,
Nor taking many pictures.
Haven't been sitting around in deep thought,
But god damn have I been drawing.
I must have filled ten pages of my sketchbook yesterday alone.
Pen and ink, all of it.
I've taken to Egon Schiele's work lately. Reading a biography of him.
My favorite pieces of his he made around the age of 20... still wrapping my mind around that.
Also Kent Williams is a new beast on my radar. I love his pen drawings.
Oh, I've been following a really awesome blog lately called Berlin-ArtParasites.
I follow them on Facebook, but they also have an Instagram and other social media.
They post a quote and a piece of visual art in conjunction multiple times per day. I've found a ton of inspiration in the quotes and whoever is curating the pictures has a genius catalog of underrepresented artists. Check it out at https://www.facebook.com/berlinartparasites
Leaning further away from becoming a commercial artist every day, but I am still very desiring to be involved in some fashion. I'm finding my place. I think I'd be a great art rep.
I move out of my studio on May 30th; I have not decided where to yet.
Wherever I move, the rent will be at least half of what it is now and I'll be able to save up for travel or future unforeseen expenses. I decided this would be a smart move since most of my days are spent at my internship lately and the art I am most interested in producing can be made while I sit at a coffee shop anywhere. I'm not at a point in my life yet where I need studio. But I'm getting closer.
More pictures on the way soon; I have it in my mind that the next time I visit dad's place, where I keep all of my old art and sketchbooks, I'm going to bring my camera and catalog all of my old stuff into my computer, then I'll add it to my website.
Looking forward to sharing that with you soon :)
