Maybe. But you don’t have to be able to paint in the comfort of your living room to be able to have an amazing drawing.
I have lots of ideas. Ideas like:
I wish I could draw a unicorn
A beautiful girl with a cat
Totally naked people
And lots more
I just need to draw it
How do you develop an idea? How do you know exactly when you have one?
You figure it out by practicing. You practice, practice, practice. If you’re an artist, I highly recommend developing in a way that keeps you coming back again and again.
For example, I’ve been painting for the past twenty years and I have many, many ideas. So, in a way I get an actual feeling of inspiration that comes from the practice—from trying to refine my ideas, from making them look beautiful.
I have one rule of thumb: I’m not interested in looking at someone else’s work. I want everything to feel unique. I can’t do anything about people not finding my work attractive, but I will try and help them find it. I’m never going to be someone who looks at a bunch of the same stuff—which isn’t a problem for me, but it’s always a problem. I’m trying to do something that’s completely unique. Something not just a copy of someone else’s work.
How do you get started?
I do it in the shower. I just soak my pen in soapy water and I just try and draw everything out. There’s not a lot of drawing that I really like right now—when it comes to drawing I find myself trying to get through it at the same time as I’m writing. I don’t like trying to read my thoughts. I’m always just trying to get through it. Just as a piece of art to put on the wall.
At the moment my work isn’t really very creative, it’s more about a mood, or just thinking about other people’s feelings. Maybe I like something in my own life, I like writing, so I’m thinking about all of them. But you just need to practice. I want to practice drawing for the rest of my life, not trying to have a bunch of drawings you just look at at a gallery show.
Can you see yourself getting a good job as an artist?
I do want to work in the art industry—I would love to get a
