Controlled

It’s been a while since I last shared some of my drawings here. 

I’ve been looking at other people’s drawings on Instagram and Facebook and I saw that some of these drawings have a deep meaning behind them; things concerning society and culture. 

I’ve sketched two drawings really quickly the other night and I thought I should share them with you. 


The first drawing (if you can tell) was inspired by the idea that “skinny” is people’s, and especially young girls’, goal. The man is being suffocated by the waistband, even though he’s gotten too skinny to the point where his ribs are showing. 

The second drawing is pretty obvious. Our emotions, as well as society’s standards and criticism, control us. We are like puppets succumbing to the desires of society and to our emotions and feelings. The hardest thing for a puppet is to come alive and break free. 

I’ll make sure to post more drawings from now on…so many things I want to share with you. Until next time, create and keep blogging. 

A Girl with Nice Hair

I once knew a girl with nice hair. It was silky, golden, and shining. I remember when she put it in a bun, or braided it, or tied it into a pony tail. I remember how it always smelled good. I remember its curls, the perfect contrast. But now that she’s gone, all I can do is draw that hair, as good as I can. So here it is, a trial. A faded memory.

personal art work, hope you like it.

 

Going Tribal

As part of introducing myself I thought I should tell you that I’m an amateur artist. Lately what I’ve been interested in was tribal art, or what is known to some of you as tattoo art.
I like to draw in all kinds of ways whether psychedelic, zentangle, pencil etc.
However, I’ve discovered how challenging tribal art might get.
Honestly, it is not easy to draw something “tribal”, but then I think that how can I possibly make progress if I don’t challenge myself?
I personally dislike drawing portraits. This is why I focus on other kinds of art, and that’s one of the reasons I encourage people who want to take off their artistic careers to start with tribal art. It’s simple, yet challenging.
I also wanted to share some of my tribal work..and I hope you guys like them.
