I understand what you mean :) I used to draw and paint in a more realistic fashion (or at least I tried), but everything I did felt very literal and quite cheesy, like I had painted it dead… Then I started playing around with deformation and strange colours and things just clicked. I would be a challenge for sure to make a portrait without my little warps… But I like playing outside of my comfort zone, so I accept :)
Thank you so much for your kind words. All my drawings are quite personal, and sometimes I’m not sure if it means anything to anyone else. I’m glad they connect to you in some way.
