Catching a Wave

Cowabunga…

I’m out of my comfort zone!

I’ve been wanting to do an abstract wave for some time now. I kept putting it off because ‘me and Illustrator’ aren’t the best of friends. Those pen tools are obnoxious!

So much has been happening in my head lately. Mainly… thoughts about pushing through when I’m a little fearful or don’t feel confident about certain things.

Illustration is one of those things. It’s one thing to take a photograph and create art from it, but it’s a whole different animal to create something from nothing. I don’t draw. People always tell me “anyone can learn to draw!”

I look at my stick figures and say, “hmm… I don’t think so.” 🙂

Anyway… I decided to get tough and keep pushing through so eventually I’ll get comfortable with illustration… and I’m sharing my first design.

Good, bad, or indifferent… it doesn’t matter. I can try new things, or I can do the same old thing; over and over. Today I’m excited because I stepped out of my comfort zone and chose to try something new!

If you do what you always did, you’ll get what you always got.
