ART DIARY No.2 - CANDIED GHOSTS

 

Hello!!! Ahh finally, the past few weeks were a bit crazy, spent most days drawing and planning for future projects! I will be honest, I was feeling very overwhelmed at one point because I'm trying to juggle so many things at once! Since January I have so much free time and it was a dramatic change for me, since I moved to London 3 years ago I only had just a couple of hours for myself and now I finally have most of the hours to work on what I love. Don't get me wrong I love it, it is a dream come true, I just think I got too excited and thought I could work on multiple projects at the same time. Working on a task while thinking about the other made me feel like I was drowning! Well two weeks ago I decided to pause a few things and focus on just art for now, I wanted to share the process with you guys but I didn't want to create just another post like last time so I finally created my YouTube channel!!! I am sooooo excited, it's my new baby! I'm already editing the second video which will be up next Wednesday. At the moment I am planning to post a new video every Wednesday. This is my first one and a made a couple mistakes while filming, I'm still trying to figure it out but I'm sure it will evolve with time.

I haven't talked about the concept much on this video but I will cover it in my next one! This illustration is part of the series I created called Candied Ghosts! I have never ever drawn any type of food before and I enjoyed it so much, I love trying new things! Don't you? I love feeling challenged and stepping out of my comfort zone, I believe it's the only way to grow and learn.

This is the final illustration: 

Cupcakes for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner!

Speaking of new things it's my first illustration working on a larger scale, this piece was made on an A2 paper and usually I draw on a A3 size paper which is literally half the size and I am in love with this size, I feel like I can really focus on more details which is amazing, and I am very tempted to make something on even a bigger scale but I don't really have the space at the moment.

Other than that I have so many exciting things going on but it's too early to share, things can change and I don't want to put more pressure on myself so I won't reveal too much for now. In July Rodik and I are going to Cyprus for two weeks and of course I am super excited, I cannot wait to enjoy two weeks of laziness, food, sun, family, car rides... Hopefully we will managed to shoot another Summer editorial before we leave but our schedule is a bit tight at the moment.

Ok that's it from me, for now!! Hope you enjoyed this video and thank you for the support! I can see my blog metrics rising and I can't believe that you guys actually take the time to visit our blog so thank you! This blog and my YouTube channel are my babies, they mean the world to me and I can't imagine not creating new contend everyday! Ok enough with the deep talk haha..

See you on the next one x
