|Note books and a quote book I had made up by Vista print.. The color turned out fabulous!|

Over the years I have watched certain bloggers emulate those they envied or admired! It was much more blatant than they probably realized....all the while they were extremely talented with their own style. Somehow they felt the need to take on a part of another bloggers persona. I find that so sad... I myself have taken a few online classes and find it could be very easy to imitate characters similar to those I have been taught by. However I am so cautious about letting that happen, still at times it slips past my radar too! Without ill intention of course! I always revert back to my love of color, black lines and quirky digital characters! That's who I am!
|Mugs and a mouse pad made up with my art! Looks much better in person!|
|#16 A card I made for gypsy goddess also better in person...I didn't get a good photo!|
|I painted Lynns shoe a while back and added her quote to it for my personal quote book....|
My post was long last week, many may have missed Will Terrels video link. He is such a generous teacher you can watch his videos and hear his sage teachings free. Even though he is a cartoonist his words apply to all artists. I dare you not to learn something invaluable in those videos. I know I have!
|There was a half price sale so I made up 40 pages of my shoes accompanied with favorite quotes including a few of my own!|
I don't think it can be said enough, we are all born with a gift....all of us...whether it's comforting others, teaching, doctoring, defending or creating....what ever it is probably started to be noticeable at eight years old, some even younger..however we may have dismissed it, forgot about it, let it go feeling it was irrelevant... but truly it's who we have always been. I've loved to write as long as I can remember. I had pen pals, I wrote poetry as a little girl, coloring and reading was my favorite pastime!! I was always creating something.... How about you? What were some of the things you did as a child that you totally dismissed as irrelevant? What is something you passionately did as a child but thought it meant nothing...still you loved it?
Remember a copy is never worth as much as the original! Always be yourself!
It's never too late to find your own voice!
|I was very happy at how my vista print items turned out! The color is vibrant and accurate and the pages were a very good quality!|
I can't tell you what a thrill it is to see my art on certain items!
Give it a shot if you haven't already done so....
