Alright everybody, as some of you may care, i keep up with a daily sketch. That’s right everyday. Yesterday though. I didn’t complete one nor feel like drawing when i had the opportunity to do so. No reason why really, i had a great day just didn’t want to be forced to draw just to keep up with followers or “loyalty” to them. And that got me thinking… Why am i being pressured into doing a drawing everyday? Just for attention and popularity? I cant think of any other real reason besides it gets me to post more often then not. But ive taken the liberty upon myself to go ahead and change the “Daily Sketch” to “Fairly Regular Sketch”. Reasons being: I don’t want to have to draw everyday, i don’t feel like my art should be with the incentive of pleasing others, and i dont want my art becoming meaningless and excessive without time to work on things i truly enjoy or have projects for. Seriously though, I did some album art that i was really proud of for my buddy who produces dubstep, and no one gave it a second look. Not a big deal, maybe it was hideous. But i just thought id rant my two cents on how i felt and the reasons why im switching to the fairly regular sketch.
Some art i didn’t finish. But apparently was good enough. He accepted it as a rough draft for his album art.
So its kind of a long story, but pretty much i was asked to do some album art for this Dubstep producer/re-mixer BOMMER. So i got to work on it, messaging Bommer himself for details and specifics as far as editing or placing his ideas into the art. Eventually i told him i was gonna send him what i had so far, and then he could tell me specifically what he wanted differently. Immediatley after responses and conversation up until this point, he stopped responding. I told him then if he didnt like it he should tell me to scrap it and start over. Still no response. So i gave up on working with it. Later i saw he had posted the album up on sound-cloud along with credit toward my art. The little guy sure surprised me.
In all seriousness though, this guy is a good dj. Ive listened to his productions and remixes and thoroughly enjoyed them. Another fine young dubstep artist in the making. This Ep specifically has him and another artist named Hendrix. Both genius producers! Its an honor to be featured as their album artist.
Today i saw a status from a friend whos friendship was very short lived. I will not repeat the status to protect privacy, but it startled me. I’ve felt I’ve learned a lot, and progressively have gotten much more knowledgeable for my self, my morals, and others in general. But i was surprised to stumble on that a flaw of mine is to try so hard to make another being feel good about themselves. I think its definitely something i need to encourage, ( being happy with yourself) but not pushed or demanded. Its something that cant be repeated as a lesson for someone to hear and get better. They need to feel it. I have learned that i love myself only through significant events and self stimulation by others. And i need to realize its not something to just promote and tell people it needs to be done, but in fact needs nurturing like there was nothing wrong with them in the first place.
