'#1year_of_GraphicsEasy
#graphicseasy_secrets
Day 14/31
Personal style. For a long time I was confused -  I kept asking myself - can I call myself an illustrator if I don't have any exact visually recognisable style and if not, then who am I? What if the biggest joy for me is constantly experimenting and trying new things and I don't wanna give up this joy for one exact visually recognisable style?
The answer came while watching "Abstract: The Art of Design" show on Netflix. Christoph Nieman (@abstractsunday) - hero of the first episode (and my personal hero ever since) showed me that the matter of personal style is much wider than I'd ever thought. That it is actually something completely different from my idea. It grows right from your personality, vision, experience. It's your way of approaching projects, the way you see things that no one else sees and only then the visual aspect, which reflects all this beautiful mess inside. Instead of trying to fit in existing boxes - just do what feels like you, what is "You" and then no boxes or labels will be needed. Uniqueness will be born.  I felt like I finally had approval to do whatever I think is good for me.

Breaking down.
I wanted to close #GraphicsEasy soon after my cast was removed. 
It was my first week back at work after recovering and it seemed like I was back in the crazy rhythm that I couldn't and didn't want to keep up with anymore. After I broke my right (!!!) arm and couldn't draw for a month I promised myself to make my physical and psychological health a main priority. At the moment of desperation the easiest way to ease the situation and release the pressure seemed to be giving up the side project. It stayed in my head just for one evening, the next morning I woke up with renewed energy and thinking that it wasn't the way. Later, when I mentioned it to my younger sister she said "You're a fool. Give up all the rest but don't touch Graphics Easy". Sometimes you just need to hear it from someone else. Thank you @nastuachag

Day 11/31
Improvisation or hard work? Yesterday I published the wrong video by accident. I can imagine how disappointed you were while watching this video - slow, without an idea or end. The truth is that videos like this are necessary working material to produce at the end video that looks like improvisation. The truth is that it's almost never that easy.  I usually show you only the tip of the iceberg, just like many other artists. You see the result, not the process. Next time you see a beautiful picture - instead of thinking "I wish I could do what they do", try to imagine what lies behind it. All the hours, weeks, months, years spend doing hard work - dedicating time, practising, trying and failing again and again, standing against self-laziness and inner criticism to be able to one day look self-confident, talented and  effortless. Imagined? Are you ready for it? If yes - do the work and one day you'll be there.
If not - that's okay too. I'm not here to scare you, I'm here to support you. Wherever you are on your creative path - know that it's hard for everyone - even for those creatives that may look like unreachable gods in your eyes. The bad news is that all of them had to do the hard work to get there. The good news - it means that you can do it too and maybe you'll get even further. If you do the work. 🌿 It's hard but it's fun and totally worth it. 💙

'The many faces of INK | graphic course | 8 classes | 20 hours 

Course dates   31.10 — 19.12

WHERE? Belgická 11, Praha 2 
WHEN? Monday 18:30 – 21:00
Course fee* 5 200 Kč
Participants in a group         7

*All materials included, 8 x 2,5 hour classes (20 hours total) 

The many faces of INK is the first in a series of graphic courses by Graphics Easy ( www.instagram.com/GraphicsEasy/ ) about analogue materials and techniques and how to use them in the way your friends, clients and your granny will love.

Ink is a material of many faces: 
– It covers surfaces with a perfect matt black on one hand yet it has water-blending possibilities which create transparent shades of silvery grey on the other,  
– It’s brilliant for the tiniest details with an ink pen while it gets wild and uncontrollable with a brush, – It makes perfect gradients,
– It’s magic for drawing on wet paper. 
This is all ink and our subject of discovery during the course.

The first five classes will be totally dedicated to experiments, the next two - to your personal project,  and the last one we will leave for presentation and analysing  what we’ve done.

The topic for your personal project is totally up to you - it could be an illustration for your favourite book, music album cover, movie poster, Christmas card or anything else you could think of.

'GRAFICKÝ KURZ OD 31.10 "MNOHO TVÁŘÍ TUŠE"
 8 x 2,5 hodinových lekci (20 hodin celkem) 
7 MÍST

“Mnoho tváří tuše” je první ze série grafických kurzů Graphics Easy o analogových materiálech, nástrojích, technikách a především o tom, jak se je naučit používat tak, aby Vám pomáhaly tvořit správné dojmy a působit na diváka, zákazníka, maminku tak, jak chcete Vy. 

Tuš je jedním z nejvíce různorodých grafických materiálů. Perfektní krycí schopnosti s  vytvořením matného jednolitého povrchu, možnost vytvořit stovky odstínů “stříbrně šedé” jen pomoci přidání vody, neuvěřitelné gradienty a malba po mokrému papíru, nejjemnější detaily pomocí tenkého pera a “neučesaně” živé textury pomocí štětce - to všechno tuš umí perfektně. A to všechno budeme zkoušet a učit se používat pro své účely během kurzu.

Prvních 5 lekcí kurzu budou věnované zkoušení různých technik a experimentům s materiálem. Zbývající lekce budou věnované práci na projektu. Téma si účastník zvolí sám. Může to být ilustrace ke knížce, obálka pro hudební album, obálka časopisu, filmový plakát atd. Na konci si uděláme prezentaci a analýzu odvedené práce.

Kurz je pro všechny, kteří chtějí své schopnosti v kreslení a používání analogových materiálů a technik posunout na další úroveň. Také pro ty, kteří se chtějí seznámit s materiálem jako je tuš a s technikami, který tento materiál nabízí a také pro ty, kteří chtějí rozšířit škálu svých možností v grafické tvorbě.

Lekce budou probíhat vždy v pondělí od 18.30 do 21:00 na adrese Belgická 11, Praha 2. 

Termín konaní kurzu  31.10 - 19.12

Počet účastníků: 7

Cena kurzu 5 200 Kč

Cena zahrnuje všechny materiály a pomůcky.

Compare two pictures. Both made using same colours: blue, yellow and black. They're identical by composition. But what is different and because of what?
What is the reason? - this question, asked often enough, will open you many secrets. Just ask it yourself every time you're looking at picture you like or dislike. For what reason?
Today's example shows us that even with limited colours you can make completely different impressions.
🔸The first picture is about the bright an...d beautiful mountains, where the little figure of traveler is just an element of scenery.
🔸Second one is about the long road which is ahead of this small but curious and brave traveller. Feel the difference?
And now - why?
In the first case I mix colours, let them create new ones, play with each other, while in the second case I keep them separate, the distance appears. The person in the picture stops simply being a part of the whole. Instead it brightens it with their yellow coat on the cold blue background and is led by a distant light helping them to find their way.

That's it for today! Talk to you later!

One reason to use a limited colour palette could be as simple as having limited space in your bag while going for a trip. We were in the mountains for a weekend and I knew I was gonna feel every gram of extra weight on my shoulders while climbing the mountain. So I chose my palette at home and took only 3-4 colours with me + black for details. The secret is - you're an artist, you're free to use the reality just as inspiration or idea for your work, you don't necessarily nee...d to copy the real colours of the objects you draw.
