When I was 5 years old, I drew a scary cat. It actually looked like a cat, and not just random squiggles of color. I was so proud of it. From that moment on, I dedicated myself to being an artist. It's all I've ever wanted to do.

Hello! Sorry it has been so long since I've updated anything here.

2012 has been a pretty terrible year for me.  Bad luck, bad health, bad art, bad relationships, just bad everything.  It has been very difficult for me to get through. Year isn't over yet, so I'm still trying to survive the rest of the year. I'm trying my best to get past all my misfortune and just make it to 2013 in one piece. All the stress and bad vibes took a heavy toll on my art output. I was hit hard with art block. Felt like my creativity was leaking away from me.  I struggled just coming up with a basic idea to draw.  Even on those rare occasions where I had some inspiration, i couldn't get anything drawn.  When I tried, it turned out horrible in my eyes.  It was so frustrating, and the more frustrated I got, the harder it was to do anything. Life was just SO frustrating. Everyone kept telling me that I should use my emotions and put it in to art.... but it just got so difficult to do anything, let alone for art. 2013s gotta be better, right??

Now for some good news.  I've been working hard to break out of my art funk.  Trying every kind of inspiration exercise the internet/ in books / I could think of to do to get my art back on track. I was determined to get at least some part of my life back in order, even if everything else was falling apart. Ha, you know, get something together to feel at least a little bit good about, you know?

I have always been my own worst critic. Sometimes talking myself out of completing something because I just couldn't get it perfect enough. I'm trying to work through the fact that there is no perfect, and that sometimes I need to tell that little inner critic to STFU.

I'm not going to back track the whole year and post scraps of work that frustrated me.  That would just be a waste of my time re-living all the frustrations from that time.  So I'm just going to start from here.  This last week I've managed to do a little over 9 new pieces of art. I would push for more but I need to hit up the art store and get some more paper.  So that good news is that I'll finally start updating here. Yay! I'm going to attempt staying on track for art now and working through the stress and frustration the best I can and get some work done regardless.

-Ami

I have had SO much fun working on the sketchbook, even though I still have a little bit left to do to finish mine, I know I will miss it when it's over.

I agree with you about doing it again next year.
