Artists like us hate marketing because marketing is about manipulation (using people, bullying them nicely into buying what you do,) whereas art is all about an expression of truth which, we hope, touches and moves someone in a deep and meaningful way.
Wonderful drawings, BTW! I said "real artists" because you are one! My favourite is the first pic of a sad girl. Grabbed my attention right away and pulls me back. That is the kind of intimate, real art that I'd like to see a lot more of in this world! The ostrich is more affective in a commercial sense (people love animals, but it also has a bold, excited character looking out at you.) All are well done.
Trying to analyze my feelings, I guess it is somewhat like these are my children, and I feel protective. They are not born for others to judge, or to compete with others. They have a life of their own for me, and simultaneously remain parts of me, manifested.
Wow! You are very talented! I hope you find your inspiration again and can share your wonderful work with the world.
I'm always surprised at how critical artists/musicians etc, are of themselves, no matter how talented they are.
