Lifetime Journey of a Beginner: Sit, Meditate, Draw, and Repeat

, ,

Illustration has been the most consistent thing I’ve done for the past 13 years. Meditation has been the other most consistent thing I’ve done for the past 8 years.

Both practice helped me so much to discover, define and shape who I am today, what I do, and how I do it. Even so, I see myself as a beginner most of the time.

The backstory of my latest collection of ducks

,

A spontaneous collection of ducks is all it took to (re)trigger my obsession with illustration, again.

Duck A

Duck A was born pretty small, like a cute little ball, with some sort of towel on the head like she just had a bath in the pond next door. She usually has.

Duck B

Duck B was initially named Bird A, but I had some doubts about this, and I don’t do birds that much (yet). On top of being great at pretending being a bird, he usually wear a multi-layered jumper made of his personal collection of feather, accumulated over the years. Duck B is not afraid of cold ponds.

Duck C

Duck C is very advanced for a duck, and can easily walk long distances between ponds thanks to her highly resistant boots.

Aim for Something

,

Coming back here feels like a trip to the past. It has been that long. But I want to post at least once this year so here it is!

While real priorities required me to focus elsewhere – daddyyy! – I haven’t lost my hunger for making stuff, in less time. And so here is the latest thing I made, continuing my tradition of a song + an illustration. I’ll focus on the song.

In a Nutshell

,

Here’s unpublished song I’ve recorded at the beginning of the year as I was trying to work out some low lights.

I was thinking to make a more polished recording before publishing but that was never going to happen. So here it is, as raw as it happened. Cover just done now in 5 minutes, for a change.

Deep Wander

Still finding my feet with my hands.

I experimented illustrating using the iPad Pro/Apple Pencil/Procreate combo for a little while now, loved the control I get over each single pixels, the natural feel of the pencil pressure, the lovely palm rejection, meaning that I can get really close to express my full sketching skillset on a digital piece of glass.
