“The Japanese say you have three faces.
The first face, you show to the world.
The second face, you show to your close friends, and your family.
The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.”

I’ve been feeling a bit in a rut lately. Not that I haven’t had ideas on what to draw, or that I haven’t had the energy to draw. I have plenty of all that. But more like my art is beginning to all look the same. Usually it’s times like these that I am suddenly spurred to develop and get better. Because I don’t want my art to feel stagnant, or to get too comfortable with my work. So I sit down and collect the artwork of all my favorite artists together and stare at it and think “what is it about this person’s linework that I love so much?” Is it more variety in line weight? Am I attracted by the amount of hatching they use? Are their lines smoother or messier than mine that draws me to it so much? What do I need to play with in my own work to make it fresher to me? These are all things artists should think about sometimes. The changes in your work may end up very subtle, but it will feel so much more exciting to you to draw.
