Becoming a Better Creative.

6.4.16


Ever since I've gotten back into blogging, I've realised how much I missed writing.
English was one of my favourite subjects in school, mainly the creative writing.
I go through a stage of writers block where it'll take me a while to think of something, but once I start, I can write for hours (slight exaggeration, maybe one hour).

I'm much more of a digital creative. I use Photoshop and Illustrator regularly and other Adobe products as well. I particularly enjoy turning my photographs into illustrations but I want to do more.

I wasn't great at drawing/sketching/whatever you want to call it, so art class wasn't a favourite subject because I wasn't as good at it as I wanted to be, though I was - and still am - interested in art.
The same applies to fashion.
From a young age, I wanted to be a fashion designer, but my lack of sewing (and sketching) skills - paired with a few internships in other areas - made me realise that my future career wasn't in fashion.
Though I'm glad I've found what I want to do as a career - marketing.

So, I'm working on becoming a better creative. I'm going to start writing more regularly, whether it's poetry, short stories or just more wordy blog posts. And I'm going to ease my way into drawing too.

Practice only makes for improvement.

  1. Looking forward to see other creative pieces from you :) The great thing about the internet and youtube is that it's so much easier to dabble in different things and if you do feel that you have an interest, you can always pursue classes in person.

    1. Me too and thank you! :) I agree, it's great to be able to try new things or improve on what you already know. As much as I like digital, I much prefer pen and paper.
