Your work is absolutely fabulous. Every one of your characters is bursting with personality it is bloody brilliant ;v; Your style is so free and fearless, anything you draw is so delightfully fun. I dream of drawing with your capabilities and working with illustration professionally like you do. I hope you don't mind me asking what tips you might have for an aspiring artist?
Thank you very much <3 this so kind of you.

When i started gesture drawing, I hated it, everything i drew just looked like blobs, and i hated my sketchbook. It was especially hard, cause i did know how to draw cartoons, and i could do them in still positions rendered very nicely. But i forced myself to finish it and mid way things started to get better and easier to capture. Use a pen to draw so u cant erase it :) It helped me mentally move onto the next drawing cause i couldn’t “fix” the previous one. Most of all have fun :) And its a really difficult part when you are starting something off, cause its easy to loose patience.
Hope you find this helpful :) xx
