Re-visit to an old drawing. It’s sort of very special to me, because when I first created it I never in my wildest dreams thought it would’ve given me some amazing opportunities to meet some fantastic people. Especially since I was almost ready to just give up drawing as earlier in the year I got rejected from Art university. But the response I got from this image really urged me to just keep going and never give up.
It’s been quite a few years since I felt comfortable enough to do an illustration like this. I’ve been insecure about drawing for a long time and it’s held me back from completing artwork (as you can probably see if you’ve been through my tumblr.) So it’s nice to get back into the swing of things. My Augustinian monk, Bernard. He is so adorable I just want to squeeze him.
