I've been thinking about writing a regular blog for awhile now, but kept making excuses as to why I couldn't. Today I finally came to terms with those pesky issues and decided that no matter what, a blog like this would be a good thing, something I can do to give back to the wonderful art community I have been a part of for so many years. I think possibly my biggest mental hurdle was actually deciding what I could write about. I kept convincing myself that I didn't have anything worthwhile to say. Finally these kinds of thoughts lead me to realize that if I was struggling with self-doubt, how many other artists, or even would-be artists, suffer with the same thing? Things like overcoming self-doubt as an artist is one of the many topics I want to discuss through my blog.
Of course, in addition to artist self-help topics, I will be doing art tips and tricks too! And walkthroughs for various pieces, and getting into the nitty-gritty of how to choose the right medium, and even how to do the very basics of drawing!
This blog will be posted every Monday, right here on my website. Which means that next week will be the very first "real" installment! Let me know in the comments if there is a topic you're dying to see me cover. If I end up picking your topic, I'll give you a shout-out in the entry for your awesome idea.
