Break on through I've been feelin a bit artistically clogged lately. Too much art director cheese possibly?
I've spent the past 6 years with an art director sayin'- make it like this, make it like that. Now I am on my own and I have to be my own art director. It's been pretty difficult for me.
My boyfriend says-"just pull from what you like and add yourself to it'
. But me likes so much. He also says "stop surfing DeviantArt or I swear I'll block that site". "The hell you will." I say back.
I want to develop my own style but I'm afraid to end up with a shtick. It is a fine line I guess.
It's great when you see a piece of art and know who made it just by the way it was done, but a style can also be a trap when you do it just because it feels comfortable.
I'm still learning so I guess it will be awhile before I get to that stage. I want art to be fun again for me and not just a job. So for now I'm going to make bubble gum pieces like when I was a kid and hope something grows out of the mold.
