I guess I’m already in the state where I think I don’t have much left to tell and there isn#t happening that much to tell and i hate it to begin a blogpost with excuses.
Last week i still worked a lot on my kickstarter project and i hopefully can publish it by the end of next week. I also made some researches and looked at a lot of other projects to feel more prepared, confident and secure for my own project. I found a lot of interesting kickstarter projects and also came up with some more very vague ideas for other projects i might start in the future but that would be to much to talk about yet. The booklet itself is nearly finished and we can start to make mockups and also do some graphics for the rewards. Most of the preparations are done for my illustration collection booklet and we have to bring everything together. My boyfriend also came up with some video ideas but i don’t feel that confident aout talking in videos at all so we will see how this ideas will turn out. I know videos are important to visualize the idea and give a insight about me and what I do so I guess I will just try and give my best. Although I know I can only benefit from showing myself and be more present and open I still have negative thoughts about it and I always feel I will fail. And I absolutely have to fight this irrational fear. Let’s randomly quote the infamous Shia Labeouf and Nike “JUST DO IT”. I am still very excited about this project and hope it will end up successfully. Since the booklet contains all of my favourite illustrations I made in 2017 it’s also exciting to see if you are interested in having a booklet collection of my art. Please keep your fingers crossed for me!
Contemporaneous I started to work on a new illustration series. In the beginning of this project i thought of doing some illustrations for valentines day. Due to the circumstances that there was not much time left to prepare something bigger for valentines day and release the prints in the beginning of january I decided to maybe put the prints online on valentines day (or after valentines day). I am a bit undecided about valentines day anyway. On one hand I think it’s really cute to show the special persons that day that they are special to you and on the other hand I think I can show the speacial people in my life that they are special to me every day of the year and there is no need for a valentines day. So I made my valentines idea about taking care of yourself and make yourself a valentine and doing youself something good. And not only on one day in the year! I want these Illustrations to be a little reminder for you and me. It’s very important to take care of yourself more often. I already finished some illustrations but not with all of the ideas I came up with yet. There are still a lot of images I want to illustrate and there are a lot of sketches that want to become real artworks. I hope you can at least find some of the illustrations as prints for valentines day in my etsy shop.
I know this doesn’t sound like i did do a lot at all last week but i think there can’t always be action in life and as i said before: it’s important to take care of yourself and i also spent time watching netflix, taking long baths and working out.
So far for now,
All the BEST,
