Hey guys, art is really tough. Lately for me it's been feeling extra difficult. I've made the tough decision to, for the first time in my life, not do art as work for awhile. I'm going to take a break away and pursue other passions. Eventually, especially if this is what you rely on for income, you start wondering 'am I good enough? Is what I am doing enough? Is this what people want?' and when that happened I felt like I started losing what makes what I do fun and unique. Our goal as artists is to become our own favorite artists and when you start trying to mold yourself into what others want - that isn't as genuine (to me anyway). I can't be losing the fun in art while simultaneously constantly working on it just to still struggle badly day to day financially. Unless something crazy comes up I am going to be leaving art for awhile to focus elsewhere and regain what I love about doing art. I'll still be doing and posting things, but I will just be working on personal stuff.
If you want something from me you can get something here. I am closing the sheet on the 4th. I am not sure when I will reopen again, probably not for a long long while. Don't lose the fun in your personal work, everyone!
