Art for Art's Sake
Everything started when I was in primary, I got fascinated with the beauty of art materials, I became a collector of different stuffs until finally I start to draw. For now, I am going to show those few art works that I make, it's random and just to share a little bit story about those.
First in line is my oldest painting, okay let me clear that this is not the literal oldest because I first paint in books during my first year in primary, my parents are worried that I will ruin all the books in our house that they decided to give me a bond paper which I can paint and draw. I declare this as my oldest painting, as this is the only painting that I kept from my childhood; I guess this is already 10 years old. As you can see it's too simple, no other details and what I use is the acrylic paint.
This butterfly is just a random thoughts in my mind, my hand wants to paint but my mind keeps on asking what to paint, until I came up with this butterfly. I use poster paint on this, the cheapest paint that I can buy in mall.
Sometimes when I really don't have idea what to paint, but don't want to end the day without doing anything, I go in Pinterest and look for some ideas which I can make, I prefer minimalist style of art too.
I also try making optical illusion or repetition art. For me it needs to much effort, like you need to align, make every details, and the measurement accurate to make it more beautiful in the eyes, but seeing some artist doing it so easy push me to try, why not.
Aside from painting, I love to do sketching. Before, when I don't have money to buy materials for sketching, I only use Mongol II Pencil which I received from our church. Just like painting, I first draw in our book, that until now I can see my alien works. I asked my parents what are those, then they said that it is how I make humans before.
I have here the icecream and a girl, if you observed it was cut from other paper, the reason is I am afraid that I will lost it, so I cut it and paste into the sketchbook where I can keep everything.
In most cases girls love to do journal, I don't have a daily journal or a diary but I found love in designing before writing. Sometimes when I want to take some notes or just some reminders in my notebook, I always want to make it more attractive before writing. This is the reason why I also collect journal materials. If you want to see and know those common materials used in journals then you can read my article "Make Myself Happy in Journal"
The last art for this day is my drawing of koi fish. What I want to highlight here is glitter pens that I use but unfortunately it's not that obviously due to lightning. Glitter pen is one of my gateway in discovering art materials aside from the stickers. During my primary, I always save money to buy glitter pens that cost 10 php for one piece. Since I am a kid, I don't have enough money that I can only buy once a week, now that I grow, I still keep glitter pens because I know I deserve it.
I will still do my best to share some of my art with you. Not that regular, as I am also busy in real life. That's it for today, thank you for reading!
