The past couple of times I tried to draw on my Photoshop I failed at creating anything aesthetically appealing. I thought it was my Wacom tablet, it's only the Bamboo type [this year I should seriously try to upgrade my setup]. The small dimension you're supposed to use w/ the stylis/pen made me feel a little "caged." Therefore I tried drawing by hand. Despite feeling more in control of my lines I still failed to create anything good.

I started getting frustrated because a flood of beautiful, mentally captivating images have been pouring into my mind for the past few months. I've been dying to get them out. On top of that, I still need to crank out art requests from last year up to now.  

I did some research as to any tips to help jumpstart my shit and came across an article that happened to be from dA. It made me realize one thing I used to do 24/7: sketch/practice/draw/make better use of too-serious classroom assignments. And the article I read made note of the many benefits of always keeping a notebook on your person for when those randomly marvelous ideas/inspirations come a'knocking on your window.

There are a couple of situations I need to fix before I even attempt to finish any more work:
1. acquire a bigger purse/hobo/bag - my current situation can't fit my coffee tumbler + purse + cellphone w/o looking like it will explode.
2.  move when the impulse hits - write ideas, poems, etc. or doodles when they arrive.
3. take challenges, work on weaknesses - speaks for itself.

One good thing I do have to say is that I started picking up acrylic painting again, something that hasn't been done since high school. This is probably the one thing I've tried as of late that I have done a decent job at.

Hello, Deviant friends. Some significant amount of time has elapsed since the last time I was active in my art. Other portions of my life have definitely kept me busy, and still are. But, I'm glad to say that I'm getting back into it which is quite a journey...and it still is a journey. I've discovered new aspects and variations in my personal style and have learned new things about myself in the process.

It's off to a slow start, so please bare with. I can't promise much. But I intend to make it worth your while.
