Upon some self reflection I'm in a place that I've been before, which is wondering where I fit in as a designer and illustrator. How do these two things go together, or do they at all, and where do I go with it?
As an illustrator I take things at face value (like an actual tree, book, bottle) and translate that into my commercial work. Now, I'm being challenged to learn new styles that are heavy on abstract concepts, and like anyone doing something new, I suck.
It feels like a setback in a lot of ways, but like I said I've been here before. I can put meaning on these feelings if I want to, but I'm won't. The only way to get past some new insecurity is to work on it and learn to be better. So let's laugh at ourselves and slog on through!
I'm an illustrator and graphic designer who is desperate to get back to the basics of pencil and paper! I'm challenging myself to sketch everyday for 40 days in hopes of regaining my overall skill, creativity, and wonder!
