I am bringing back my "Portraits by a girl who can't draw" :D
to be honest - times are weird and difficult. i lost all my jobs back in march because of the quarantine. not being able to do gigs, teach lessons, or travel has decimated my bank account, and i know a lot of you are in the same boat. so this post isn't for those of you who are also struggling.
this post is for those of you who are doing great and would like to help out independent artists, such as myself.
i cannot draw. i have NEVER been a gifted painter, drawer, colorer, etc. BUT! i have always LOVED TO DRAW AND PAINT. makes zero sense. and about a decade ago, i got it into my head that i should share my "terrible and embarrassing but also possibly quite endearing" creations with the world :D
so, i put them up for sale on my website, thinking maybe 1 or 2 people might snag one. i literally sold every single thing i'd ever drawn in about 2 weeks. and the demand got so high, that i started doing commissions! it was so fun and i will always cherish that creative and fun time i had with you all :) (shout out to those of you who bought stuff back then! THANKS AGAIN! <3 )
i am bringing that back!! :)
i will not be doing commissions because i'm a LITTLE more self-aware now, but i'm still going to post new pieces for sale on my website over the next few weeks and see how they do.
attached to this post are some screen grabs from the old "for sale" page on my website... all of these have sold and are no longer available, but new ones in the same style are coming soon. i hope you enjoy them and find something you love and connect with! :D
before i go i just want to reiterate - I KNOW I CAN'T DRAW. i'm terrible. i know nothing and can achieve zero progress in this area, LOL! i just have fun and have a heart for unusual characters and the underdog, and i know that to some of you- that's all you care about in your art :)
you can see and buy new pieces weekly on my new sbzartcrafts instagram :)
