Trying to open up

Trying to open up - student project

I have never thought of myself as a comic or cartoon artist. I have more experience with drawing from real life and doing fashion sketches. It was refreshing to try a different style and to see that it came easier for me than I thought it would. I am going to experience more with my individual style as I continue though. 

I decided to ease into this a little, I have always been really reluctant to keep a diary so visualising my feelings through art and writing is going to take some time.

I am a rather closed person and I keep a lot of things inside. I have yet to try the gratitude map, drawing my heart and brain and the future self portrait, but that is on the to do list. 

 

Here are three of my attempts, two are just a part of my daily journaling and reflect what is currently going on in my life and then I have made a resilience pie chart. This is rather personal for me and was quite hard to put on paper. But it felt good to do it :)
