My last entry was 2006, really?! Jesus this art block has lasted far too long.
So, I'm hoping I'm over it, I just need to get off my lazy bum and get a new sketchbook. My last one I ended up tearing up while trapping myself in the bathroom in the throws of a nervous breakdown (the joy of a very long, drawn out, stressful period of unemployment). The result is now a sketchbook, torn to shreds in a large folder as a reminder of where I've come from. And lots of loose sketches/designs/ramblings floating around my apartment and my work place. Although heartbreaking looking down at the torn up pages it was oddly freeing.
Exciting news, I'm now working with ohnojaylo
. It is the shit, minus the photoshoots of doom. I LOVE it! Although the job is stressful I'm bursting with creativity. I went from working in wardrobe for a porn studio (just... don't ask about the stained panties) to working in Halloween designing accessories. I adore it!
Um, trying to get over my art block right now, trying to keep inspired. It's easier when my job doesn't drain my creativity like all the others and I don't want to kill my coworkers.
No more graphic design which I think is a step in the right direction.
Yeah. Hopefully I'll update more now that I'm actually drawing! I had forgotten how the process makes me feel at the end of the day. I really am a changed person when I'm not drawing often.
