How cool if I want to see and research and octopus- I can at the tip of my fingers! Not like the good ol' days, get dressed, go to the library, find as many books as i could and take..from there - the days already 1/2 gone.
Now, I'm up, coffee, not dressed- well -undies are o.k., office attire on a 26 degree morning in Canada! I'm pinning lions for Duke's thank you card, mailed out later today with a few postcards! ;)
I use it to craft, clean, cook, gouache better! Draw better. THERE are no excuses- you will spend your day reading what others are doing or you will spend it educating yourself on a topic you already love - the trick is to shut down and do it. I can get caught up in PIN.
It is my 'I'm too tired to draw go to and 'time waster as well.
I follow a few and I unfollow too, only because I really want to focus sometimes and PINs can get me off focus. Moderation.
My art has improved because of the internet, I'm grateful for it!
A few of my friends comment "I don't get it.." so here is PIN in 10 easy visual steps (you are welcome) quick steps. Want to bake better cakes - use PIN - NOW wait... I have a friend who said "I get overwhelmed at all the great work I see on PIN and then don't try..." well that problem is with the person not PIN. The only way to get better at anything is to do it all the time. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, when I had my studio PepeLepew was painted saying those words for the hundreds of kids who passed through my studio doors!
Because 7 out of 10 asked me: How do I draw like you?
PIN have fun! look me up! Comment on one of my recent PINs and I will see it there!
I probably won't react- I'm usually on researching a drawing.
Have fun.. Moderation.
