Not so much text this time as there is a short and fast (stay focused, you might miss it!) timelapse video of the custom cover notebook (or sketchbook). Yes, I also have a frickin youtube channel with speeded up videos of drawings, which were part of what pulled me into drawing in the first place, I wanted to make something like that! Here it goes. Don’t mind my setup and the fact that I was balancing my phone on questionable objects while trying not to go out of frame and not let my hair interfere with the whole thing (which it slightly did, I think it wants to be a movie star). See below!
Mmm, that sweet icing! And the soft muffin bites… with some sprinkle and cherry on top..! No, not a recipe this time, just some sweetness that you can eat by… looking at it?
I love drawing sweets! Muffins, candy, cupcakes, pastries, donuts and all that. First realised this joy because of an assignment for college (I’m about to start senior year at SCAD! Woo~) where we had to draw a whole setting of sweets. It just comes out so pretty! And then I drew a custom illustration for someone cause they also enjoyed the tasty look, so today I’ll showcase a new custom cover design for some notebooks.
Having something small you cherish and wanting for it to grow steadily, you have to put in some effort. I’ve always loved stationery and I can spend hours looking at notebooks and the pens or pencils sections, I want to have all of it! I realized that I’d actually want my own line of stationery, something great, pretty, useful and just plain cool. This is why I started the Tinte Ink Etsy shop for custom cover notebooks, journals and sketchbooks.
Being an artist is something that you choose, because it’s what you want to do, not what you have to do. While going through the phases of determining if you consider yourself an artist or if this is just a hobby, you feel like having a sense of individuality and style is the first thing you need. You want to be recognized for this thing that you do. Either your drawing style, your colour choices or anything else that is consistent throughout your work. But that is the very wrong way of beginning your journey as a creative.
