Okay, so… I’ve got to get some stuff out of my chest so BEWARE some seriously whining and angsty feelings are coming.
I love working on children/teens illustration. And I most definitely love working on cute art. I love drawing princess, I love working on projects for young audiences and I love that the only goal I have with my work is to make people happy and light hearted.
I don’t do cute art because it’s the only thing I can do. I do it because it truly love it, and I honestly do not want to do anything else.
(There are enough dark superhero movies out there people, you do not need me to put more shades of gray in this world, juts let me paint with all the colors of the wind)
I LOVE THIS!
I don’t care if my art is not political, if it’s not appealing for grown ups, if it’s not dark and bloody enough to be taken seriously, I don’t even care that my work it’s not really art at all.
So why do I feel like crap whenever people say:
"Aww, Irena does cute art! She draws girly stuff, she can’t do (INSERT WHATEVER HERE)”
It makes me feel so defeated and useless, and I don’t even know why! What just makes everything even worse.
I do not want approval for work I don’t care about.
I have some good ideas. Yeah, they are all girly as hell and yes a few of them involves princess and glitter BUT WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT? Girly can be awesome.
