After taking far too long of a break, I am finally back to making work again! After graduating I got into a rut of, "I must make money to survive so I guess I need to find a full-time job". This led to focusing all my efforts and time on this and not so much on my work. The lack of making started to really get to me and I slowly dove back into my practice. Is it completely where I want it to be at this point? No way, but it's getting there!
Recently, I've made a switch to splitting my time between physical drawings and digital illustrations. I never really utilized digital aspects in my work before this year, but I have to admit, I really like it. It's fun to see the way my art changes based on the medium and there is definitely an interesting difference between the physical and digital.
Now..onto the next chapter – opening an online shop. This has been something that I've considered doing for a very long time, but my nerves always held me back. I guess there was part of me (there still is) that is so nervous of how it will be perceived, but I've recently come to the conclusion that as long as what I'm creating is making me happy, then that's all that matters. So, here's to this new jump into a world I'm still learning so much about (who knew you can't just open a shop at the snap of a finger)! I'm excited to see what happens from here.
