This post must have been the most frustrating one. It took me hours and hours to create, lots of swearing and self doubt, feeling like crap and repeat. I was desperately seeking inspiration to share something awesome with you.
Ever felt like you're repeating yourself? Yup, that's what's happening to me. I crave to create something new, get out of my comfort zone, and just feel free with what i design. Instead of doing just that, i ended up putting restrictions today. I should create something pretty, something has blue, white, pastels. Don't use pink or purple, because i want to create "serious" art. Ending feeling completely uninspired and frustrated with myself. Art can be a real bitch sometimes. Art is not always easy.
Today i drew lines, dots, peonies, boobs, leaves and god knows what i haven't lettered. While i was ready to give up and head out for some yoga with my sister, i found myself playing around with all my "frustration" doodles. Not thinking, just letting my hands move and put things randomly into places. THIS is art. This is exactly what i felt today, letting your thoughts, restrictions float away and leave your emotions create what your mind can't.
OK, i know this is in a way not me, not the style i'm used to designing, more on the side of crazy art stuff, but i love it. I love how rough and raw it looks, yet minimal with emotion.
Now here's something that has got me a bit excited. I'm finally getting things done, starting by the redesign of this blog. I know we went through this back in April, and although i never shared it with you, obviously it didn't work out.
I'm refocusing on getting this space a more inspiring place for designers and creative spirits in general, a space where you can perhaps hear a different opinion or an experience, and finally getting a few more collaborations with other designers on the downloadable section. I'll get more to that later on. Sorry for going on and on this post, there's just SO much i want to talk with you about and connect. I guess i should just go back to enjoying summer for now :) Hope you're all, every single one of you, enjoying an amazing summer.
