Meet Your Creator
Hi everyone!
 
I'm Seekie or Skee, I'm a Vietnamese high schooler (or crab) struggling with deadlines but still wants to draw. I've been drawing since 2018, mostly self-taught and I've failed and failed better numerous times, and today I'm still trying to experiment and try different methods with my art. The art journey has fostered my creativity, logic, and story-telling; while serving as an instrument of expressions, but it was not easy. I have struggled with art blocks (and still), lack of ideas and motivation, and sometimes I want to just stop drawing. Throughout the years, I've learned that there is so much more to art than just a competition to get good at, it's a safe space and a diary that I can convey myself, my worlds, my characters, look back on it, and feel delighted with how much I have overcome. So don't be hard on yourself:)
 
I want you and other artists to also have fun drawing and be inspired to tell your own stories, thus I want this opportunity to help you learn something and pave the ways for your great self-expression journey ahead. Great things will come and you can use this knowledge to build a career, understand art better, or just hone your creative potential!

It is highly recommended that classmates use ibis Paint X, but otherwise any other digital program can be used.
