Artist Self Doubt

National Superhero Day

Superheroes are one of the things that got me interested in art. Comics in general also got me interested in art. I drew comics in elementary school. I've been drawing superheroes for over two decades. National Superhero Day is a day to celebrate fictional and real life heroes. My favorite fictional superheroes include Batman (technically a hero, not a superhero, since he has no powers), Superman, The Flash, Spider-Man, Hulk, and Wolverine. My real life superheroes are my family. Others as well are artists who inspire me as an artist. Happy National Superhero Day!

Eliza Dushku And Woman Crush Wednesday

"Eliza Patricia Dushku"
I drew this picture specially for Woman Crush Wednesday. I'm a big fan of Eliza Dushku. I was so happy with this drawing that I hesitated to even ink it. I think if I color it at some point I'll do it digitally. Eliza is an awesome human being. She's an actress, and she works with causes like THRIVE Gulu. She's beautiful, talented, and she has a huge heart. I'm proud to be a fan of hers.

I'm making this kind of a quick post today. This is a drawing I did of an actor from a show titled Catastrophe. I saw an ad about this show in Entertainment Weekly and decided to do a drawing of the actor.

Art Research

I'm doing some art research. Last Monday I watched the 1987 film Vincent: the Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh. I'm also planning on watching Lust for Life, which is a Van Gogh biopic with Kirk Douglas as Van Gogh, and Girl with a Pearl Earring. The latter is about Johannes Vermeer's famous painting. It stars Scarlett Johannson, who plays Black Widow in the Marvel movies. I've also checked out Portrait of Gachet: the Story of a Van Gogh Masterpiece, a book from the library.

The Van Gogh episode of Doctor Who, post revival, had something to do with my interest in Van Gogh. It may have been what started my interest in Van Gogh. It was a great episode. I'm also doing some studying for my own art. I'm hoping to apply what I'm reading to my drawings. Maybe I'll also learn some things from legendary artists such as Van Gogh and Vermeer.

The Most Impressive Quotes by Vincent van Gogh



My favorite quote is the one that goes, "In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing (Brainy Quote)."
