Set the goal of one painting a day and try to draw steadily. And even if the picture is a failure, post it on Instagram. This is because I try to draw better after seeing a failure.

My life is an art itself. It imagines everything and relates to art. deliberately try to imagine like a child A child’s thoughts are pure and imaginative. I always try new things after looking at my daily life through various accidents.
