I enjoy creating art, sometimes it is very uplifting if you find that you make a success of that you produced. Some people like that and others don’t it is a matter of taste and sometimes who the artist is or was.

Starting with this Graphic Design Scrapbook gave me a lot of motivation. Instead of creating a scrapbook where you cut images and glue them in a notebook, I used my computer programs to do that.

A lot of artworks are free on the internet and you always need to give recognition for the artworks you use which I try to do most of the times where I put my sources.

Sometimes I run out of ideas and or just get bored. There are times that I do nothing and think by times it is a good thing just to relax, get away from your work. But I think when you feel that you must create work that makes you smile you start enjoying it and then it does not feel like you are an in-house graphic designer. It must not be depressed or a difficult thing to do it must be easy and fun. You must feel like a child which plays like when he was two or three years old. Draw his mom and dad and the house he is living in with the dog or the cat.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “Every artist was first an amateur

That is true and you must remember that when you start to draw or to work. Everything you do have its own difficulties and techniques which you need to master. Ralph which was known as Waldo was been seen as a champion of individualism. That is what artists desire. Believe me when you are fed up and hard up for new ideas you start reading what other people said and sometimes you believe it and sometimes you don’t.

I think that is what an artist wants to be and that is an individual. He wants to create his own work, his own ideas and wants to be a master of that.
