I'm Lei Melendres, a full-time freelance illustrator for over a decade. My current art style came from trying all those different drawing styles and techniques over the years. The art I create is commonly known as "Doodle Art, " a broad and generalized art term for something that is both too little and too much. I mean, anyone can create a doodle as long as they can hold any drawing material and use it on something that can record their drawing strokes. It could be as simple as a single line or an unending display of skill where you draw until you can no longer do it using all kinds of elements such as different characters, patterns, words, etc. The idea of being able to draw creatively and spontaneously to fill out a whole page excites me, and the result for me will always be surprising and captivating. Art is not always about expressing your thoughts and ideas. Sometimes, it's a way of releasing the overflowing creative juice you have to entertain and satisfy yourself.
As human beings, we have always been fascinated by the search for our true meaning and purpose in life. As a result, every single one of us has had moments where we asked ourselves who we're supposed to be and why we do what we do in life. To find an answer, we are willing to go to great lengths, whether thru a journey of self-discovery where we collect things, information, experiences, and lessons we think might help us become mature or knowledgeable enough to understand the complexity of being human or through more scientific means like research and experiments that could also be made possible by collecting all the necessary resources we need to understand life in every sense of the word. Of course, not everyone will be successful, and this process can be a destructive path as it sometimes takes a bit of trial and error before we succeed, which is why it takes a bit of courage to take the first step. And since we're going on a journey through known and unknown realms during the whole process, it can be considered a long voyage. Finally, when we can't get answers through those means, we sometimes seek help from a higher power beyond our reach, spiritually or scientifically, and hope we get lucky enough to find what we're looking for or more.
