Why Do I Create?

This isn't a question that I'm asked a lot by the masses, but this is a question I ask myself when I feel uninspired to create something for the day. In this post, I'd like to discuss my reasons for creating by flipping through the pages of my sketchbook and old art work..

here's the story

When I was about 10, I created my first completed drawing and I thought it was pretty awesome.

It was a drawing of me with a green jacket that had a synthetic fur around the rim of the hood, and I had simple pair of blue jeans, with my hair all black with honey blonde streaks.  What's funny is that the jacket got ruined in the dryer about a week of me drawing my self portrait because the jacket's fur was SYNTHETIC. I was so bummed out and I'm glad I drew the image first lol. But that's not where this short story ends. So anyway... 

I was SO proud of it because I used all of my best colored pencils, markers, and new pencil set and I was all hyped on showing everyone at my grandma's house that day lol.

Not only was I proud, my cousin was too! He recreated my portrait, made it his own, and I loved it more than mine because of how his re-draw made me feel.

I had a deep sense of pride because I inspired someone to just be creative. Everyday after that for a week, we recreated each others drawings and had the best time coloring, drawing and what not. I had a great time honestly, nothing could be better for that 10-year old me. 

being an inspiration

Being that my cousin was no "Art-Arist", but only an artist Musically, the idea of inspiring ANYONE to be creative was simply inspiring for me. I had a sense of purpose and I was driven to create more and more. 

Now that I'm much older, I decided to revive that passion within me and be an inspiration!

To be honest I don't have a specific niche and style of and art category that I can fall into, so for a while I've been collaging my random artwork into my Art Journals.

I guess until I find where I fall into the Art Community, I will continue to create random artwork to collage into my Journal. Maybe I'll be the Art Journal Queen or some lol.

Buut that's all for today, see you in the next post!
