Hello dear reader.
I wanted last week to write a bigger article about me burning a large bunch of my past paintings in a ritualistic "never again", but that's going to be for another time. It is challenging me to post dense and valuable content on a weekly basis. So I'll keep this week's article short for once.
When I happen during my evenings to watch a TV show or a movie I am not exactly absorbed by, I pick up my mini A6 sketchbook and doodle away anything that comes to my mind. I can sometimes inspire myself from the movie I am watching but most of the time these are just improvised out of the blue.
As you can see, each of them is pretty different and could be the starting point of a completely unique story. These are just a few examples of a multitude of drawings that will stay in the dark only to entertain my dreams. But these "doodles" are more than time killers to me. They are bubbles of air when I am suffocating. They are the rope that holds me tight against gravity and fatigue. Any kind of little sketche, mark making, anything that gets me going is a building block toward making and keeping my practice consistent and alive.
For there is nothing scarier than a dry artistic block to me, as I know I will fill this emptiness with vanities that get a man to lose his senses.
So here you are: if you feel blue or isolated, if your blood runs scares and things are becoming tasteless, then doodle it! (Just don't Google it.) It will get you through.
That's it for today. I hope you found this little article helpful and I will see you again next Sunday for another episode of Trail of colour.
