oh boy oh boy.
We are back here, Queen Bees, to look at more cringey, old childhood artwork that managed to find their way out of my parent’s basement and into my studio. We laughed at the silliness and learned a few good lessons along the way.

My old childhood drawings/artwork are nowhere NEAR perfect.
And I will go as far to say that they are not groundbreaking – but they were stepping stones for me.
How could I learn techniques and develop my own style if I didn’t trip, fall, smudge, blur, and basically every mistake in the book in my art? How could I develop my own style if I hadn’t constantly drawn movie characters I loved over and over again?
We as artists need to embrace failure, and see every step in our art journey as a beautiful time of self-expression, development, and inner meditation.
It is a time where mistakes are OK (encouraged in fact!) and whatever you make is perfect for you.
I hope this is inspiration for you to pick up that pencil or that brush and just start. Don’t let fear stop you from even starting!
Nothing is sadder than wasted talent, Queen Bee. And here as your Buzzed Artist, I believe you deserve to make your voice heard. So go get ’em!
