I would like you to meet Abbey. Abbey is the title character of a children’s fairytale book, where I am both the illustrator and the author! After years of illustrating for others, I have decided to work on the manuscripts I have had for years just gathering dust. Stay tuned for more! 📚🎨📚🎨
I am amidst illustrating another children’s book. Within as much, I am drawing virtually NON stop digitally. It seems I have a substantial need to balance my creativity. When ever I am doing a lot of digital art I tend to offset it by then doing an equal amount of organic art. Or, at least as much as my ever failing hands will allow. Here are a few of the organic pieces I have created this month. I tend to fair better as an illustrator when I let the artist within come out.
I have completed a few more to add to the Enchanted Twilight series.
I imagine I will be able to focus more on my art as I have come to realize my employers focus more on their needs than work. In turn, I am following suit. I have essentially put my own needs career wise on hold and was focusing on other’s needs. I was enlightened today by some very rude remarks.
As I am losing my sight and the use of my hands, I shall no focus on what I need and what my family needs and not put someone else’s needs before ours.
