The portrait is my favorite type of art. I just love working on something that is looking back at me.
When I draw, I want to capture my generation as people being people. So much of our imagery is commercialized. I like trying to capture people looking lost in thought, not concerned with how they’re being seen. I usually start by finding a photo I like and trying to put my own spin on it.
Also, FWIW, if you are someone who draws, takes photos, writes poetry, makes beautiful recipes, whatever, and posts your work on social media, keep it up. I am one of the anonymous people out there appreciating your art and taking inspiration from it. Thank you!!
