Over the last few months, I’ve been using my fun books to create from. To gather ideas and inspiration. So today I’m taking the things that I’ve loved and learned and bringing them together into something that I would call “my style”.
One of the reasons I use things like the books I’ve been using is to get me out of my comfort zone, learn a few new things, and to confirm what I love.
There are constant things that I’ve done over the last few months that continue to show up in my work. And I’m going to share that in the video. How all of this experimenting is showing me my style, what I love, and how I like most to create.
It all serves a purpose for growing your artistic muscles. I hope you enjoy the projects and can see some of what I’m talking about in your own work.
Oh, and YOU are loved!
