  • what does ”enough” mean? // it’s one of those days where nothing feels quite right; looking back upon every illustration I’ve done in the past six months, I’ve found myself criticising and critiquing to the highest degree until I’ve truly torn my work to shreds.

It’s one of those days where I feel unsettled by the fact that I’ve no set style yet, and my overactive and anxious imagination tells me that I’ll never be successful without just one thing to call my own.

On Instagram the art world doesn’t appear to value the jack of all trades as highly as it does the consistent, the singular, the aesthetic and satisfyingly predictable. My lack of ‘one’ makes me feel inadequate and underdeveloped rather than what others might tell me is ‘well-rounded’ or ‘flexible’ or even talented (which I turn my nose to, not from arrogance but disbelief.

So, today, I questioned myself intensely and found no happiness in the depths of my mind - only despair. Simultaneously motivated and demotivated, inspired and uninspired, filled with ideas and blank as a new sheet of paper. I want to be able to do everything, but also to have just that one thing to focus on and nothing more.

So, to get out of my head, I did a single scroll through my Pinterest feed, tapped the first photo my finger landed upon and threw colours on a page until something recognisable appeared. Here’s something resembling a portrait in a style I’ve pulled from nowhere today. I’m not sure how much more I’ll add to it, or even if when I next pick up my pen I’ll be able to understand or even find the flow to complete it. I don’t even know if I like it. Today I don’t like anything.

Just another thing to add to my world of chaos.

  • No sabia si publicar esto por aquí pero bueno....YOLO 🤣
Es una tendencia de tiktok que tenia ganas de hacer hace rato. 
Lo bueno o malo de ser artista es que podemos expresar muchas cosas por medio de nuestro arte yo particularmente lo expreso de una forma muy oscura 🌑
Me centre mas en transmitir lo que quería que en los detalles(Por si aparece algún critico 🤣).
Termino con la pregunta... cual es tu mayor miedo? (Se vale trolear)
