I spent a lot of the lockdown cultivating my artistic talent, assuming I have one. I actually had a lot of fun with pencils, brushes, photoshop and so on, and I also learned a lot. The amount of time I spent watching tutorial on youtube is almost alarming. I haven’t really discovered anything new, tho, I have been drawing since I was a child, I’ve worked as a graphic designer and I still do, but I never spent whole days painting just for fun, at least not in the last ten or fifteen years. Who’d have guessed that it would take a pandemic to unleash my somehow repressed will to make art! I suppose before covid-19 I was simply too busy with mundane, daily tasks. From this point of view I can consider myself lucky to have found such a constructive way out, which I hope will also lead me to something more in the immediate future.
Although I am completely sincere when I say that in times of crisis being creative and doing things with your own hands is the best cure ever, both for body and mind, I’m here to do some self-promotion and I won’t even try to hide this sad truth.
Let’s be honest, the lockdown has put a brake on every activity and we all need to reinvent ourselves a bit. Which is not a bad thing at all, in my opinion (but this is a story for another time), I just wish I had to reinvent myself in a lot less tragic circumstance.
Long story short, I’ve got a little shop on Red Bubble where I sell my graphics. I’d be simply delighted if you’d visit it and maybe even share the link.
Thank you so much, and stay safe.
