Melancholic goodbyes

At first, no, I'm not ending my blog. Don't worry about that! I'm speaking about the moment after days, weeks or months, you've spend with the work, and it's time to give it away. In most cases, you know that it will happen, at least, if you are doing it for your living. Even more if it's a order. For me it doesn't change it, how much I give for it and how much it's about me, from me. It's a peace of my creativity and thoughts! I had an idea and I made it to something, that anyone can see or hold.

I have a problem and I'm unsure, how to call myself. Am I artist, dressmaker, sewer, painter... There really isn't just a word to explain, who I am and what I do, but for  making this easier, I'm calling myself as a artist, for now on.

As artist selling your work is something that you wish to happen, and it's something that hopefully happen. Still it always hits me. I want to give it away, but at the moment, when it's actually happening,  I don't want to do it. At least I want to be sure, that it will have good home to be.  This is mostly with painting, but also with some sewn items. I think it's about the amount of hours used for it. How much you loved, what you were doing! Well, this is just telling for me, that I love what I do! @FromMadeByMeri

Working with a giant project

I've been busy and it's easy to see from, how often I've been writing lately. Anyways in beginning I promised for myself, that keeping the blog isn't going to be something, that I let to stress myself. I'm using all my time and energy for the work, what I'm doing right now. I don't want to tell more about it now, but for this post's sake, I need to tell, that I'm working with Photoshop and using hundreds of hours for this.

The biggest challenge for me is, that I don't remember to take a breaks. Somehow drawing with computer, doesn't feel same way working, then sewing or painting. I easily forget to drink or eat. Suddenly I notice,  that I've been drawing four hours and haven't moved at all. In long run, this is really stupid and I'm trying to focus specifically to this. Currently I'm "watching" Netflix while working. More like I have it open and I'm listening and time to time looking what is happening. My idea f…

Giving second change for my markers and buying new ones

I've been really into Inktober. Even more then I waited to be. I waited to have more problems with keeping this daily schedule, but surprisingly, only one day was hard to get anything done. I've been focusing to drawing so much and haven't really felt like writing. I think it's partly because, I've just been drawing and not doing that much anything else.

I've used almost completely my original markers. I had my first Sharpies ever and they used to be enough for me. Just because I didn't used to draw with them. I basically used those just for writing. They are okay and good for practicing, but now I'm needing more and I'm waiting from mail, my new Winston&Newton's Promarkers. I read and watched Youtube videos about, what would be the best for me. Copics are known to be the best, but the price is just way too much. I trust to Winston&Newton as brand, based of their other products, like paints. Also some artists actually prefer them, over C…

Art and feelings - hospital art

If you are saying that art doesn't wake any kind of feelings in you, you need to stop at next time and actually give a second to look at it. Art can be powerful tool and mood effective. I'm talking now specially about art in hospitals and other public places. In this context, art can be anything from actual painting or photography, to color of walls or pattern of ceiling. I'm always focused the patterns of air conditioner's grids. It sounds so small detail, but every hospital room has it and after laying somewhere hours, you'll start to notice details on roof.

I've got my dear share of hospital time. Time in waiting rooms, doctors offices, examination rooms, wards... There is usually one common thing. Something on walls, that is meant to make place to look nicer, warmer, more comfortable... Sometimes even more home like. It can be anything from doctor's kid's or kid patients drawings to abstract professional photographer's ink test like photos. Eith…
