Poefish's Journal :3

I can't make art anymore. I've been in a slump for like a year. I have no inspiration and everything I try to draw looks awful to me. And now I don't even like the art I've made in the past. What the heck?

Hey, sorry if this is random - stumbled upon your account after you gave me a llama (thank you!!) !! 

Just know you aren't alone!!

I'm starting to think this might be a normal thing for everyone, as myself, and sooooo many others have felt this way before. Just know that it won't always be forever. Your work is amazing, and I know you'll get back into the swing soon!! :) 
I'm coming out of a many year slump, and I've found that just doodling something small everyday (lol, yeah right, more like when I have free time) helps a little. You may not love it, but it's good to get your hands going through the motions again.

tl;dr - You've got this!! I know you do!! :heart:

Wow, thanks!
What a pleasant surprise to have someone write such kind things. :)

Damn, I'm sorry to hear that. For what it's worth I like your art, you have great line art skills and your stuff is always so clean and well done. I hope someday art is able to bring you joy again. If you ever need an art friend to vent to, or to go on a magical journey to get your mojo back I'm around. :)

Np, seriously though, if you ever feel the need to just get out and do something different I am 100% game. I don't know where you live right now but I'm in Maple Grove. If you're anywhere near the twin cities area I'd love to hang out with you some time.

I live in Rochester, but I make trips to Apple Valley and Eagan a lot, so it's totally feasible for me to come visit. We should definitely plan a hang out. :)

Nick's folks live in Apple Valley, it's totally doable! Next time you're thinking of being in the area let me know and we could try to meet up and do something! :)
