Why Courage is Important for Art
1. Courage is Important for Art Whenever I feel like I don’t have any ideas for my drawing, I try to elaborate that feeling to see if it’s because my ‘Creative Bank Account’ is low or If I don’t have the courage to put bad drawings on paper. We always have thoughts and therefore ideas (sounds simplistic, i know). Most of em are not good, but that’s not the point. You’ll land on the good one by executing on the bad ones And its takes COURAGE to face the bad ones. So draw your bad sketches, drawings and doodles, the good will come out.
2. Making a Comic I’m about to start work on my comic. Yes. (Shush) I failed miserably on a comic project many moons ago because I bit something I couldn’t chew. Since then I've worked my way up by doing TONS of illustrations, mini projects and sketches. And I’m excited to say that I’ve taken the first step. It’s bit of a secret now, so lets keep it between us. Ill be documenting and sharing the process pretty soon :) 3. Favourite Quote of the week My favourite quote for this week is from own language ‘Tamil’. “பேய் அரசாண்டால் பிணம் தின்னும் சாத்திரங்கள்” Paraphrased/ Translates to “People eat the dead when the kingdom is ruled by devils” see you in the next one! Best, Kesh.
