head keeps returning to a notion of less. leave social medias, have like one email account, and it’s a hotmail one. throw out everything that’s not a simple pencil and pen. don’t even use washes in drawing. just black and white. pencil and pen on paper. how to draw comics the marvel way. do you seek approval from strangers on the internet, yes of course. hence this. but you could use this time to just play video games.
summarize and then stylize. look+see, brain grasp that shit and then output. comprehend the form, do not copy it.
FOCUS ON CONSTRUCTIVE OUTPUTS
work on a zine, consider ‘final product’. drawing, but to what ends? an exhibition? a publication? or is it all mere ‘content’ so i can sit online and gather likes.
always detested the idea that drawing is a preliminary for something else (painting/sculpting)
NO ONE IS PAYING YOU TO DO THIS
feels now like this is the direction, the correct direction. but i definitely thought this before…
AND IN ANY CASE
