14 Jul Draw with me! #drawwithme
Almost without noticing it, summer has arrived. As this year I cannot afford to go on vacation, I have thought of escaping through my sketchbook.
I have a complicated relationship with my sketchbook, on the one hand I love the idea but on the other hand I have a hard time drawing when it is not for work, since I have this idea of associating my value as a professional with constant productivity. And that’s a problem, especially in creative professions where it’s important to let your mind rest every now and then to work better.
Also, 99% of my work as an illustrator is digital, but the truth is that there is nothing more relaxing than feeling the texture of the paper and fiddling with colored pencils, watercolors, markers, ink … there is a kind of freedom in assuming and accepting that a wrong line can
ruin completely change the drawing, and that if that happens it’s not the end of the world either.
So, in summary, for both mental health and for fun I am going to try to force myself to rest and spend time on my sketchbook, and making these videos can be the perfect excuse.
If you like relaxing lo-fi music and watching other people draw, this video is perfect for you:
