Let curiosity drive you, not fear

Everyone knows that fear and creativity go hand in hand.

We've all felt it at one point or another when we try something new -- that insidious doubt, that gut-wrenching anxiety.

Fear plays an important role in creativity.

When we engage in creativity, we're putting ourselves out there. We're making something new, unknown.

And fear hates the unknown.

The prehistoric part of our brain hisses and recoils from question marks and change. That's why we're all born with an instinctual fear of the dark -- our primitive brains are trying to protect us from whatever is out there.

All creatures have this fear to some extent. It's not special to us.

But we lucky humans evolved and gained higher functions. We developed the ability to do more, be more, than the common animal.

And one of the things that truly sets us apart from other animals is creativity.

Our ability to creatively problem solve, write music, and make art is EXACTLY what makes us special.

So why on earth do we let the most primitive part of our brain dictate what we do?

Why don't we let curiosity drive the car instead of fear?

Imagine for a moment what your life would be like if you followed your curiosity.

Making art doesn't have to be hard, Reader. You don't always need to plan an elaborate piece, or have a theme -- or even what materials to use. Sometimes it's as easy as sitting down, picking up whatever pen you have lying around, and making a few messy marks. Just the other day, I was feeling overwhelmed and sat down in a huff at my desk in front of an open sketchbook. I grabbed the sharpie pen that was within reach and started squiggling all over the page without any thought or plan. I...

Hello Reader! I'm coming at you with something new -- a newsletter, to be exact! I've wanted to do a monthly newsletter for years, but I didn't really know where to begin. It wasn't until recently that I saw Peggy's newsletter (of The Pigeon Letters fame) that I was inspired to give it a try. So here we are! I want to use this monthly newsletter to connect with you on a more human-to-human level. You can expect this to be a place where I share all the nonsense that tickles my fancy as well as...

Reader, do you ever have it where you draw one beautiful, perfect eye, but the second one always ends up weird? Or do your characters always end up looking stiff and unnatural? I used to struggle with this all. the. time. My go-to drawing workflow always started with the eyes, then the rest of the face, then the body, one limb at a time. I thought this was THE way to draw people and faces, so I clung to it for years. Flipping through my old sketchbooks, I see it everywhere -- half-done faces...
