Consume

Turn It Up: fashion illustration

I spend way too much time on the internet just….consuming. I’m mean there’s just so much out there that I want to read or watch, it’s endless. Sometimes I feel a bit bad that I spend more time consuming media than creating it. But that’s just it: You are what you eat. As an illustrator, without even making a conscious effort, everything that I consume becomes my influences and spills forth unto my work. Like water seeping through the cracks of some porous material, I have no choice but to regurgitate every image, sound, and word that I’ve consumed in the form of pencils strokes and color palettes. Don’t hesitate to consume content because the mixture of everything you’ve taken in will become you’re style, your creativity. No matter what type of media you create, I believe this to hold true.
