"There's probably hundreds of thousands if not millions of images out there that we'll never see because they're in sketchbooks and loose pieces of paper. People are afraid of showing them. Fear. The fear of sharing something because you feel you're not good enough..."
I snagged this quote from artist Pascal Campion because, truthfully, he is my inspiration for this blog post...
Recently, I started up a Facebook Fan Page to better separate my "personal" self from my "work" self. (Not that they're so much different anymore...) Mostly, I just wanted permission to post like crazy about art and not worry so much about being annoying! The ability to choose to be a fan is slightly different and less personal than a friend request.
That is, of course, until I discovered a large number of friends tagging along. :) Thanks you guys.
The problem posed by starting yet another online site is how to make it interesting enough for people to actually, well...care! I decided to use Facebook's photo album feature to my advantage and start a daily sketchbook album (because apparently Goodbye my 20s isn't enough ---stupid?)
I want to share my sketches, not hide them away, and I don't want to put any pressure on myself to finish. I merely want to dig up an emotion from deep inside and hold on to it long enough to make a picture.
It's going to be a journey for me, a place to learn about myself and work on my storytelling. And because what matters most is for people to see these stories, I hope you'll follow along!
