No.180



I haven't updated my blog for a while... but I am still alive, still drawing :)


It's almost the end of the year, so I feel like to review a bit of what I been doing. I think I didn't do much, at least I still made something done.
I had a project about a hard subject, and I really don't like it. This is a challenge to push myself to complete a work I don't really "feel" it. I learnt how to keep my arse on the chair, force myself to look at blank papers. Though it's painful process, but it's also very precious experience. In the end, the result seems not bad.
Also, I have another project, to illustrate someone else book, which I always want to try. I enjoy the story very much, so the characters come to me easily. I draw happily, and the editor likes my work too. But I noticed slightly something missing in my illustrations and I can't tell what it is. Then I got a advice from the publisher, saying the main character is very lovable but other supporting roles seem not as vivid as him. Then I look back those finales, yes he's right. It's hard to discard some drawings when you think it's okay but also you know it can be better! I redo them, and I can see my improvement. I am glad I did it.

It's not easy to become a full time children's book author-illustrator, really not easy... a very long way to go,  full of obstacles but full of thankful blessing too.

Happy father's day!
It's father's day in Taiwan today. 8th of August. Because of the pronunciation of 8 in Mandarin is pretty close to 爸, which mean Dad, so I guess that's why we make 8/8 to the Daddy's day!
However, Dad is always the awesome one! Love you Dad :)

No.175

Recently I tried a new technique to make image, and I really enjoy it. I was quite very stressful for a few month, worrying about my future and some sort of silly worries just stuck in my head. Finally got a good news, sort of take off some weight on my shoulders. Then I enjoy my creative work freely, again :)

I often feel frustrated when I saw many talented illustrations, and start to doubt myself.

And this quote always helps me a lot:

I don’t think there’s any artist of any value who doesn’t doubt what they’re doing.
Francis Ford Coppola

Being part time artist is very hard, and it's even hard to tell you what kind of hard it is.
I keep doubting myself, and also I am the only one can tell myself to keep going.
I still not sure can I be as good as what I wish to be, but only keep trying, then I will see :)
