Found this through Amanda Palmer's twitter.

Wow, if you hadn't commented, I wouldn't have realised Amanda Palmer linked to me. I need to pay better attention to twitter. Thanks.

Great sketches!


We should have been learning to improve at doing what WE enjoy doing. As an artist, the teacher should ahve known that sometimes art rules are meant to be broken.

Yeah. I think it's important learn things outside of one's interests--I agree with Mike Mignola's comments I paraphrased above about the necessity of learning to draw things you don't like to draw--but it's important to remember art is fundamentally about self-expression, which is primarily going to consist of the media and subject matter the artist him or herself prefers. It's a very fundamental thing to art that I think people forget in the quest to create reliable formulas for success in artistic fields. People are afraid of things that don't work inside the equations they understand, mainly because it threatens to put them at square one. Art's a terrifying equaliser in that way.

Luckily, my classmate never stopped doing what she loved.

I'm glad to hear it.
