Two of Two, and Productivity

So here, as promised, are the other two drawings for this weekend. There are a bunch of gallery applications I'm trying to finish for this week because I'm trying to get more exposure and more experience on my CV so that MFA applications go a little better next year (aka, I get accepted somewhere). For some reason, I've been procrastinating and I don't even know why. I hate that feeling. I know that I need to do these applications to get into any shows, and I also know that I need to do some hardcore work and planning for the show I have coming up at the end of the summer. I want to finish around 6-8 new, large works and those take time. I want the quality to be good, of course, and I want to get them framed. All this translates into the fact that I need to get to work.
Doing this blog definitely helps. For new ideas I'm constantly looking at different sources, for instance, the one of the lady with the flowery beehive was inspired by this. These sources of inspiration help me think of more concrete ideas for my show. The next step is just doing the work. Easier said than done, but hopefully next week I'll have something started and be on my way toward being more productive. Fingers crossed?


  1. I am officially in love with your drawings! wow. =) I hope you continue to do this because its all the inspiration I needed to go grab my pen! =) I enjoy drawing from a source image and then transforming it into my own. How long have you been drawing?

  2. Thank you so much, Kat! I'm sorry I've taken so long to respond to your comment, but to be honest, I'd kinda given up on the one ever comments! I've been drawing since high school, but I've been seriously drawing since about grade 12, which for me was 2004.
