After working nonstop for years on digital artworks, taking time off from the medium this summer felt like a good break. This change of pace ended up sparking some new creative energy in an entirely different medium.
I was probably about 13 when it happened. There was a teenage female model sitting on an elevated area on one side of the classroom while my art class drew and painted her image.
What does it mean to be a self-taught artist? I call myself one, but I only mean it in the sense that I am not formally trained as an artist.
