Tokyo fashion


I LOVE going through the Tokyo fashion Instagram and finding people to draw, they have such cool hairstyles and clothes! I used fineliners and promarkers for these ones. Deep talk now:

I've been really hard on myself these past few days regarding my work and I don't know why because I KNOW I'm still learning and I know I'm still trying to find my own style. Being surrounded by artists on Instagram and Tumblr is inspiring but sometimes I find myself comparing my own work  to theirs which is bs and I really need to stop doing that because it's unhealthy and it's ruining ME. Okay talk over. It's my last day of work tomorrow and only a week till I move in yipeeeeee!!

  1. Wow your blog has had such a makeover since I was last here. I love it. I know what you mean about comparing yourself to others online. I wrote a post about creativity that I just put up, where I talk about some of that stuff. It's been on my mind a lot lately too. Remember that you're amazing and your work has such value. Keep exploring. We're ALL still learning. xxx

  2. I love this post so much! Your artwork is quirky, imaginative and you are oh so talented pretty lady! It's great to reap inspiration from others but try not to compare your work to theirs sweetpea (I know it's hard!). Just like Holly said, we're ALL still learning, no matter what our age or skillset! It'll be great to look back at all your work to see how everything's evolved, just give yourself time :)

  3. Great post! I love your style and it truly does inspire me to want to be more 'creative' and 'let go' with my own drawing! It is hard not to compare yourself (I do it all the time too) but you shouldn't! Your artistic skills are amazing and you will go far! <3

  4. Unfortunately you never stop being hard on yourself like that, I finished art school three years ago and still find myself crippled with self doubt and compare my work to others. The thing with art though is you never stop learning and developing your style, even when you've been doing it for 50 years, and we're always our own harshest critics. I really love your art, you're one of my favourites, it feels so raw and carefree.

    1. Your comment made a lightbulb turn on in my head and now I feel silly because you're right, I guess you can't ever stop trying to make it 'better'? No wonder some artists end up going crazy. Thankyou for this!! xxx

  5. I hate to echo other posts but being 5 years out of art school, you really do never stop learning and that self doubt is real and painful, yet that's part of why I keep going, the search for getting it just right is so long.
    These drawings are so so lovely though, they really are, try not to compare yourself, which is easier said than done, but you'll get there. Promise.

    1. I think I'm just wanting things too soon, especially since I haven't even started my degree yet! Slowly getting used to the self doubt and right now my thing is to work through it and create anyway. It seems to be going well! Thankyou so much. xxx
