"Go weird or go home" - me
This sketchbook page is one of my recent favorites, and the quote was something I wrote down a few days later. I want to live, draw, and paint by it. Is that wrong? I feel like my best chance at success as an author/illustrator is to channel my inner weirdo as much as possible. Sick Taco? Awkward Hug Series? It wakes me up and keeps me drawing to see what new weirdos will appear. I'm not sure how to translate these little nuggets into actual manuscripts or dummies, but I know there is something there worth treasuring.
