Lately I've been struggling with "What am I doing?" I love drawing and painting and I really couldn't imagine my life without it, but bills don't pay themselves and freelance work is painful. I've realized I'm spending more time "looking for work" than actually "doing work", which is no way live. I guess every artist out there deals with the same issues, but man is it GETTING ME DOWN!!
Anyway, I'm on holidays right now and working on a couple things I can hopefully show soon. In the mean time, here's a Jay-Z I finished earlier today. I'm trying a few new things style-wise in terms of keeping it more painterly while still maintaining a sense of realism. I'm also trying to push the shapes more while keeping the likeness believable. Let me know what you think.
