I'm asking everyone to THE best of their abilities to take 10 minutes each day and doodle a thought relating to our present predicament of social distancing, how the paradigm shift has effected you in a sincere and intuitive way, you may use words, a quote you heard during that day, scribbles, drawing of shapes, characters, perhaps even a collage of ripped out digital/marketing, images and so forth.
POINT OF INSPIRATION Jean- Michelle Basquiat
Please watch the short video of an Artist that really inspired me sometime ago, the more times I spend researching his work, I am getting a deeper appreciation of the level of genius within his thoughts and works. I'm hoping the following short video will inspire you to start expressing your thoughts within your chosen medium; I'm hoping in some way this will help us all to cope with our present condition. The power of self reflection can never be under valued, I too will be sharing my thoughts with all of you in this process- really hoping you are onboard.
My Own Daily Doodles During this process, I have let go of listening to all Covid-19 related daily news stress, and how it is impacting my life. There is a lot of change and really in our world, we each deal with things differently, doodling each day is giving me an opportunity to express my thoughts and feelings. Additionally, during this process, I have been acquiring a new skillset, digital painting using Procreate, it is much different and way out of my comfort zone, I am more used to drawing and painting in Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and Adobe Photoshop on my computer, drawing with a stylus; in a way I really went out of my comfort zone- "No Pain No Gain"...:)
