The Struggle to Party is Real

Artist’s can’t really afford to be perfectionists. When we only allow ourselves to be perfect, we run the risk of never producing anything at all. This is what I am telling myself.

I really didn’t want to post the drawing I did for this week’s Illustration Friday theme “Party” (above). I am my mother’s daughter and therefore I am fighting back the urge to tell you every single thing that is wrong with it. I tried to fix some mistakes in a way that only made the situation worse. I thought many times I should scrap it and start over only to hear the baby crying in the other room and realize I really ought to thank my lucky stars I finished anything at all. So here it is, warts and all.

The whole point of this blog is to get me to push through the tough part of being an artist.
