Personal project ( 2018 )

Once again, thank you to all of you who took part in my #jazh2800 art event and had conversations with me, however brief they were! 

I started this on 24th May and I took over 3 months to complete all 28 portraits, along with my other art projects as well as my day job. Guess I was preparing myself for the pace of Inktober. I think my aesthetic, concepts as well as craft and skill have grown over these 3 months and I’m looking forward to working on the ideas I have up next. I’ve learnt the ebbs and flow of my work process, and that I really shouldn’t rush myself or do art when I am feeling terrible about life or me.
