So it`s been a while since last post. And it was exactly about something I`ve been doing... procrastinating... a lot. But today I got so excited to share with you my new passion: Merino wool.
In the beginning I though it would not turn out so well or take too long to finish one piece. But after the first one, it`s so much fun to work with it, well, except for stabbing my fingers hehehe... then my first piece was this cute litle bunny that I glued to a frame and it turned out pretty cute. For the first I just wanted something simple, but I already got lots of great ideas for the next ones.
I hope you enjoy the pictures and see you next time!
Thinking about how I get my things done and actually getting pretty upset about it, (yes, I procrastinate a lot) I was watching some videos on You Tube and wondering if it`s just me or if it is something all artists go through. Well, I found some videos that were really nice for me and I got some great advices on how to past procrastination and artist block. Will Terrel is a very talentd artist who also is able to encourage his viewers to go through those moments. I love watching his videos. I feel really inspired when I hear his advices. Another very talented artist who helps a lot on You Tube is Will Terry. His channel`s got a bunch of good advices that we can apply to our lives. I am really glad I found those guys online. I have always worked with art, but after moving to Norway my life just became upside down. On the other hand, this place is so inspiring to me, thousands of ideas come to my mind, I get super excited about all my projects... and then.... yeah... PROCRASTINATION comes to mess it up. I don`t know if it`s just fear of doing something new, or if it`s fear of being in a totally different country and having to start from zero. But I`m working on that and will try not to get away from my goals and work on my art.
Now the piece is finally finished. I used a box from IKEA and it turned into a cute vintage circus themed shadow box. Here are some detailed pics. Now i got so many new inspirations about circus, I wanna make more... I think I will start in 3, 2, 1...
So the last post was about one of my little bears that I wanted to put into a vintage circus themed shadow box. I`m so in love with circus that I wanna make other boxes and frames wtih this theme. For instance I will let you take a look at one pic and later I will post the whole shadow box. If you would like to know more about my work or if you think about buying one of my boxes, contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
It`s been a while I had a project in mind with a circus theme, but it should be in a vintage style and cute. I couldn`t wait to get this done and decided to post a pic of one of the cuties on the scene.
Hope you like it!
This is a brand new blog I have started to share with the world some of my work. I am a brazillian illustrator that lives in Norway and I am so much in love with my work that I Just can`t even think about not doing what I love. It`s been a strugle to restart in a new country where people have different interests, and art and illustration are not so popular around here as far as I have seen. But thank to the new technologies and internet I believe I can be able to work online with clients around the world. I have lots of things to improve. I know that. But the passion is there. I can`t let it go. It`s not a hobby. It`s part of me.
So this is my first post on this blog, where I will show you my work with clay and my illustrations. I hope you guys enjoy it. Buy now, I`ll just leave you a pic of a clay illustration I have made last year. :-)
