I've learned that it's ok to be flawed - Winona Ryder

>> 30 January 2009

If I participate in prompts or memes, they are usually the writing kind. Because I seem to be able to write more, faster and create something with words better than I do when I need to draw or paint something.

Painting takes time and you have to set up for it. And my drawing skills are very, very rusty. Ahum...

That is why I am usually reluctant to participate in art prompts. I have always liked the concept of Illustration Friday and visit them regularly.

Illustration Friday is a weekly creative outlet/participatory art exhibit for illustrators and artists of all skill levels. It was designed to challenge participants creatively. We believe that every person has a little creative bone in their body. Illustration Friday just gives a no-pressure, fun excuse to use it. No clients looking for a particular thing. No one judging the outcome of the work. It's a chance to experiment and explore and play with visual art.

This is the first time I dare take part. Today's subject is FLAWED, which I though perfect in two ways.

  1. My cup of tea is awfully flawed from a drawing perspective...
  2. My cup of tea moment was flawed as well, for it did not succeed in quietening my mind and for that matter get my right brain to work and draw correctly...
This is by the way sketched into my One Year of White Pages book that I wrote about recently.

So, please bear with me:

You are very much an artist Mimi. I love this, and mainly for your second reason. The picture itself is wonderful!

The combination of text and image is cool!

@Lance: Thank you. When you doubt about yourself, and every artist does, all the time, encouragement is always needed and very welcome.

@Indigene: Glad you liked it. Spurs me on. Thank you for visiting.
