Anxiety has been an issue, but I am kind of trying to work through it. It doesn't seem like that, because I'm not really getting a lot done. But just functioning, and forcing myself to focus on things counts as accomplishments. 
I got my associate in fine arts degree, which was nice to get done. 
A former teacher of mine invited me to contribute a piece to a show. A gallery she participates in has a show where members invite people to contribute a 12x12 piece of art. I did this several years ago, also at her invitation. My anxiety and depression were worse then, and I never went to see the piece hanging in the gallery. It sold, and I never scanned it or got any kind of picture of it and it is a piece of me, gone forever. :/
This time, I am going to make a point to go see a piece of art I made hanging in an actual gallery. I don't think it will fit in there, there are a lot of professional artists that product a lot of good art who regularly contribute to the gallery, but fuck it, I was invited and it's happening. *insane cackling laughter*
Do you like to sell your art; do you like the idea of selling your art, even? Is it stupid of me to not like the idea, to want to pursue art but not want to sell it? I tend to think it's just as well that I don't like the idea of selling anything, since I'm not cranking out the best quality shit. But I also like the idea of making people look at my art (this idea also disturbs and scares me at the same time)... and selling your art in a gallery setting is one way to make that happen. I don't know, it's difficult to think thoughts and feel feelings.

Hello -- your work is incredible, and the stories you sometimes post with them. I know it has been awhile since your last upload but I just found your page and it is all very very cool.

Random: I'm very happy to see that you are still alive. I got extremely worried for awhile about your absence (thanks to my own anxiety) but I'm glad you are posting things when you can and are still doing art when you have time. Your sculptures are amazing!

I feel an overwhelming sense of terror when I seriously contemplate making art, to the point where I would rather talk to a stranger, or make a phone call, than I would try to make art. It makes me feel like crying. Also, my attention span has been crappy lately.

Same thing happened to me. Just don't draw until you feel like doing it again is all I can recommend. Forcing it won't help, and will just make you feel terrible.

I am looking at art, and keeping supplies handy for when I get the urge to draw something, at least. I've been getting the urge to work on art here and there, and it is annoying that it is coming up now that I am back in school for the semester and have far less free time.
