As I've never been to Art School (and never will go - can't afford it), I have to force myself to paint/draw everyday. Sometimes it's very difficult because I have no discipline at all and I wish I had a teacher behind me and a very strict timetable.
For me, being an illustrator is my 'last chance' (if you follow my blog, you know that I gave up university (law studies) to follow my dreams) so I put a lot of pressure on myself. Most of the time, I hate everything I do. I have no confidence in my abilities and you can probably see it in my artwork. Every brush stroke are full of worries and fear to fail. I'm often scared I made a bad decision and that I'll never be good enough to get a job... But the support of some amazing people and the few commissions I get really make a difference (Merci beaucoup!). It helps me to continue and makes me want to improve.
(This is not a moan, just a reflection of the worries that goes through my mind from working alone - happens at least once a month. A big thank you to everyone who support me!)
Anyway, here are a few new illustrations and pet portraits!
My first *kind of* self portrait
I've also added some stickers in my etsy shop!
