Happy Birthday to Rookie! Every time I go on the website, I am reminded of the amazing community that I have the privilege of contributing to! These people act as my mentors, best friends and older siblings, even if I’ve never met them before. They inspire me to create and challenge my thoughts. I want to also say thank you to everyone who reads Rookie! I look at all your comments, I love hearing your responses and feedback. You are also contributing to the community, I feel so connected to each one of you :)))
i really admire you for being brave enough to share your drawings with the world. How can i open myself up more? How can i be more brave? I'm afraid to show people my drawings and i don't know why
I’m not that brave! Take that leap and keep going, fill the void that you think is missing. If you want to show people your drawings, then do it. I also think the trick is sharing some things, and keeping others secret. If you share all of your drawings, there is nothing left for you. Sometimes you have to be a bit selfish and keep some for yourself.
Hey! Does anyone know a good site to follow new and upcoming gallery shows, specifically in Toronto? Idk just a place that tells you when openings are and gives you general info on new artists in the Toronto art scene?
so last year in our year books we got to have grad boxes where u could do whatever u wanted with them and this kid came up to me and was like “can u draw a bee in a trap” and i drew it but i was so fucking confused for the longest time… . .. … .… .… .. .
do you feel like it is necessary to reflect your art style with your clothes? i notice a lot of artists seem to either effortlessly or intentionally and it is very cool!
I don’t think it’s necessary but, I think it comes through without conscious thinking. Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable/ draw what you like. I like clothes because they represent my personality and I’m able to shape shift into different characters; almost like I have control over changing the drawing. I feel like it’s just another creative outlet that artists like to explore!
