This Spring is cold and damn long..


 
 
 

Hello everyone out there,

Since my new homepage is open I have been feeling pressure to write a post. Today I start!

I have been inside my cave for such a long time! The weather does not go easy on my bare feet yet:( If you are following me on SNS you might noticed that I am experimenting on different surfaces and materials instead of pavement and chalk! So I would like to share you one of the experiments today..that is my dear Petroglyphs!

But before that I would like to tell you something:)

When I was travelling, I was a very lazy traveller, I meant, in terms of carrying stuff. I would have the minimum of everything that is necessary. I was only travelling with 45L backpack. You imagine, I put a tent and a sleeping bag the bag was already half-full. So for my drawing hobby.. I had a colour pencil that has 7 different colours in! ( ALL-in-ONE, PRETTY AMZING INDEED) MY BEST MATE, THE MOST FAVOURITE PENCIL OF ALL TIME. Here, I share some of the travelling sketches of that kind.

 

After NYC, I am in PARIS. I have a place for a year… I have been buying lots of Art materials. Because I needed, I thought I needed, out of curiosity and so on….(as a result I am here nowhere to fit into a backpack now…sad) Through Instagram I found this colourful marker that is exactly the same as my most favourite colour pencil in the world!!

YAAAAAAS, of course I bought them. And I bought them MANY. But the problem was that I wasn’t very inspired at that moment and I didn’t know what to do with it. I put it a side for a month or two and came up with an idea of primitive arts like cave drawing. What we call ‘petroglyph’. I was already familiar with it since I saw a lot in Australia!

 

SO I started to doodle those on the canvas. Guess what? I quite liked the result! So what did I do? I continued, this time I drew my dream. The rainbow colour in black background gave me dreamy feeling, so I decided to call it “Dreamtime”.

Most of all, my intention of this doodling was to let go of ‘perfectionism’. I have been always wanting to make it looks good and mostly perfect. I wanted to leave that behind because I started to feel bad and even stressed about it when it does not go as I intended ‘PERFECT’.

Oh my, I tell you I liked it. I LOVED IT. I could just draw on and on. I drew the main part and the rest came as it is. Here is the thing, I personally, again, I like cluster of things. Such as microscopic pictures, patterns,,…what else? Anyway. It gives me overwhelming, satisfying warmth. Well, at least that is how I feel.

This third drawing was inspired from my experience in Easter island. My the most favourite place in the world, deserves my the most favourite pencil, marker whatever!!! (OH I MISS EASTER ISLAND SO MUCH. HUUUU..:()

Thinking of making T-shirt out of the drawings… just for me :D ahahah If you are interested in CONTACT me YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET ONE TOO!

 

Lots of Love,

Jiya
