How to stay creative. Tips from Dan Fajardo
in Art Tips
It's not that easy to come up with your own artistic style and follow this path for a long time. You can fall during your artistic journey, but the thing is to get up each time you stumble. Constant motivation is not your main goal, there will be times of the blank space, but apparently, there's no need to worry. Dan Fajardo is a freelance artist with years of experience and he worked out his own way to stay productive even when the whole universe seems to be against you.
I stay creative by watching TV series, reading books, watching art documentaries and of course playing with my two kids because they are my inspirations :)
Oh man, I am a morning person. I usually start my day by sipping a cup of coffee while checking my emails. I always make sure that I make 2 artworks every day.
I look for ideas in video games and other pop culture videos online .
I just go to the gym to workout and after that, I go to sleep and save my energy to think of new ideas.
I am very proud of my NEGATIVE SPACE ILLUSION COLLECTION, my bestseller on Displate! It all started when I did my first Zelda design which shows an illusion of Link’s head and the forest scene inside. From that time I have always been a fan of negative space artworks.
As long as I truly enjoy my work as an artist and express my passion in every artwork I made I don't think it is difficult to be a full time artist at all :) I'm a lucky man!
It helps a lot!!! Because you can share your artworks, gain more followers and get some good feedback from them.
You just do what you love to do always! And believe in yourself even if others don't.
