First off I've uploaded a new DeviantID with a slightly less creepy id.... yaaaaaay... LOL! I've been meaning to make a new avatar but laziness always gets the best of me... and I still love that goofy one I did all those years ago!
Weeks been a rough one... both art wise and life wise. Not feeling the inspiration lately ... but I'm going to blame that on burn out.
"Slow down and smell the roses!" Well... that's what I'd say if it wasn't 19 degrees out and brown all around! I always have the aspirations to improve my art skills and as such I feel it a requirement to draw every night with what ever time I have. This, as some people may know, leads to burn out and frustration. Working a full time career (not in art) and juggling drawing into it is at best challenging.
You find yourself with time at night to either draw or get out into the world to see friends and do other things... more often then not it feels like you simply don't have time for both. It's hard sometimes to realize that it's "ok" to take a break from doing what you love and just do something else for a bit to rejuvenate the brain juices.
I find (more times then not) that I feel better, more inspired, and well rounded when I don't so insanely dedicate myself to one thing. Get out with friends, read a book, watch movies for a week, or jot down some short stories... just because you love something doesn't mean you should kill yourself over that.
With that said though you'll probably find me at my art station tonight trying to crank out some more drawings. I don't always listen to my own advice... but I try!
