I often remember kids teasing bald people, shouting “kalbo! kalbo! kalbo!” Well, it is a fact, but it doesn’t deserve the hurt the words entail. So yea, I thought it would be nice to make a counteract sketch against this close-minded scenario in a manner of a simple drawing with a quote.
Never tease anyone for their lack of hair. Their baldness shows this pride to shine through.
So what do you think?
I haven’t drawn anything for a long time. Thus, last night, despite a mild headache, I took out forgotten sketchpad and colored pencils out of nowhere drew this adorable pet. It doesn’t have a name, or a gender. Go figure what kind of animal it is.
I’ve forgotten how satisfying it is to create “personal” art. For so long, I concentrated on being a commercial artist, forcing myself to work and tune in on Client needs. It lead to a point I couldn’t figure out what to draw on my spare time. It was that bad.
I hope this simple exercise will get me back to the groove of creating my own art. Something to identify me to the rest of the world. Hopefully, I’ll soon get into the level of confidence to think I’m “artsy”. Haha!
Till the next artwork!
I hope the meaning behind is more important than anything else.
And yet, seeing this image now, I feel like crying…
