Sketch Of The Day
Starting tomorrow, the Wonderground Gallery in Disney Land will carry these three prints. http://disneyparksmerchandise.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/PascalCampionOutForASpin.jpg http://disneyparksmerchandise.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/PascalCampionPeterPan.jpg http://disneyparksmerchandise.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/PascalCampionDownBythePond.jpg ..If you want to know the little story behind them... the fire truck is because my son Colin loves firetrucks, Peter Pan is for Max because he's a bit of a dreamer( like his daddy) and I was hoping to do Jasmine for Lily because that's her favorite Princess, but that choice wasn't available.. the close second was Mulan( And Mulan with her dad of course!!)
Fixer upper. #pascalcampionart. _So? _It's nice... needs a bit of a touch up...but nice. _What do you think? You want to do this with me? _You bet! _Let the adventure begin.... tadadadahhh. _That's super cheesy honey. _Shhh... I'm enjoying my new home.. _OUR new home. _...Right.. _Sigh. _How about green doors? _Don't even think about it.. _ This is going to be fun..I can tell.
Let's go riding a Dino said the cowboys. #pascalcampionart. _But...where are we going to find hats for everybody ?
A little water... a little thought #pascalcampionart. Just a thought... Every couple of weeks or month I look at my work and feel like it sucks. Emotionally, it's not fun , but rationally, I have been through this so often( let's see... I've been drawing for a few decades now, so.. it's happened a few hundred times, maybe a thousand even....just to let you know guys, we ALL go through this). The reason for this feeling varies, but it's usually all centered around the fact that we see our work so often, we can't see anything new with it, and we focus on the flaws... and pretty much convince ourselves that if we see these flaws so clearly, that is the only thing that other people can see.( at least, that's one of the recurring thought process in my mind). It doesn't help that the internet provides copious amounts of fresh new art every ..minute or so, that just reinforces this idea that your own art is just not that great.( A funny thing about that though...is that every new artist you discover goes through that same process...funny, no?) One of the things I have noticed for me is that a good way to get over that, other than just sitting down and letting it pass..which works too .... is to just try something different. Trying something different in these situations is tricky, because you already don't like what you do best, so you're trying something new at which you KNOW you are not going to be as good.. it's really a bizarre thing... but it's also the best time to do it, because if you accept the fact that you will not create a master piece, you will probably let yourself experiment outside of your comfort zone, and surprise yourself...even if in the end the image comes back to what you know how to do... ( the reason for that is because your mind is trained to look at art and analyze it according to your standards...so when you do something different, you're still judging it by the standards with which you judge your own production...so you tend to bring that new thing back to what you do...but doing the new thing opens up your mind to the possibility of expanding your tastes and by that fact.. open up your abilities. Doing something different when you feel like you're in the wrong line of work, that you'd rather be a janitor, a whale watcher or the president of the moon because these jobs must surely be easier , is a great way to get over the humps and help you break new ground in your art..even if you don't see it as such at the moment. Anyhow... this is something different for me.. I can see that I was trying a different approach and brought it back to something I usually do, but it's made me thing and try something new, and, in a few months, maybe even in a year, or next week, I'll be able to incorporate that into my natural work flow.

Summer City ,1999 #pascalcampionart
Happy Father's day. Pascal Campion Art. This one is from two years ago( still can't do new drawings yet, but maybe tonight I can do one) This is image is special to me because I use to do this with my dad and now, my son does it with me.. I can't help but think his son might do it to him .. some circles are worth keeping alive I think. In any case..HAPPY FATHER's Day. ( Pop.. I miss you, I love you)
Playing Cinderella. #pascalcampionart. This is a quick one, and for the next couple of weeks it might just be quick ones.. that said..it's a lot of fun to try to go as fast as possible sometimes.
Catch me if you can! #pascalcampionart
Life Saver. #pascalcampionart _Do you ever feel like the world is going by you and you're just stuck in slow motion? _Ho yeah... I get that all the time. _ You do? _Absolutely. _..And what do you do ? _... I take my shoes off and put my feet in the water, like this! _?? ..And.. it helps? _..No, but it feels really good, don't you think? _..Ha... You're silly. _.... I know.. _... yeah, it does feel good.
...and good night to you too.. #pascalcampion art. A little addendum to say that I will be travelling for the next couple of days so there probably won't be any new images, but probably some older ones!
Good night moon!#pascalcampionart._Daddy…do you think she’s still up there?_…Who?.._ You know.. the cow… the one that tried to jump over the moon but couldn’t quite make it._..I don’t know Lily, I suppose she’s still there_ Is that why there is no grass left on the moon then?_….
Words in the sand. #pascalcampionart. It's pretty much a follow up from yesterday's sketch.
When the sand is just warm enough. #pascalcampionart.
Up a tree! #pascalcampionart. ps.. I’m a little busier than usual these days, which is why the sketches come at different time during the day .
BEST FEELING EVERRRRRRRRR! You can't always explain fun... you just have to do it. #pascalcampionart
On the hunt for FUN. #pascalcampionart What are we hunting for? _ We are hunting for FUN!! _ Fun? _ YES! Let's get as much FUN as possible. _What do we do when we find it? _ You just hang on to it for as long and as hard as you can! _Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
