Artist | Student | Traditional Art
Hey guys! I'm Cantonese and a New York-er. So a little about myself: I really enjoy watching dramas- whether it is Taiwanese, Japanese, Korean or Hong Kong-ese (? LOL). I really enjoy learning languages, I'm currently learning Spanish, Korean, Japanese and Mandarin. As you can see, I'm also fluent in English. Another thing I really enjoy is music - absolutely love it! I play a little of piano and is considering the guitar.
I'm not sure what career I want to pursue yet, but I do dream of being an idol in Korea someday (don't you dare laugh!). Otherwise I might be a doctor, a forensic scientist, toxicologist, or a businesswoman. As much as I love making art, I can't envision myself being a full-time artist. But I know for a fact, art will be my minor in college.
What is art to me? To me, art is meditation. When I'm entirely focused on drawing. I can draw for hours and hours without needing to rest. When I'm drawing, I don't think of anything, I don't get hungry, and I don't get tired.
Why does it take so long to finish one drawing?
1. Maybe it's because I'm a perfectionist. I can't stand something looking below decent.
2. When I look at my drawing, one stroke, even one dot, out of place can change the entire feel of or illusion of it. So I take extra care in erasing the one millimeter length mistakes.
3. I'm also very scared of ruining the drawing. After I work really hard on one part of the drawing, I become distressed about not being able to get the rest together.
I started taking art classes in 8th grade and now I'm a junior in high school. I have been drawing for approximately three years, yet I have few works to show. I usually take a really long time to complete one drawing so my gallery is quite measly. But I hope you guys like and appreciate the amount of effort I've put into each drawing. Thanks!
