Lately I'm finding I spend more time studying and making artwork. My job is already very creative, but I increasingly feel like I could and should be doing more. I see so many brilliant artists out there and I feel a sense of respect and profound artistic hunger. I've recently been finding myself somewhat repelled by the many "pass-times" that our western society saturates us with; things that offer packaged entertainment or menial satisfaction but leave no lasting growth or accomplishment. It's not to say I'm going to smash my TV and never touch a video game again, but I do feel I want to spend more time learning and exploring art in every medium and style I can.
Since my "day job" takes a lot of my time, I have to squeeze in drawing and painting and such where I can. In a way it has become a reward for me. If I accomplish a lot of work in a day, then I can treat myself to a bit of time spent on a painting or drawing. I like attitude because it increases my productivity all around. And it's fun! I have several projects in the works right now and I'll post them when I can. I hope maybe my art will occasionally inspire others as much as so many artists are inspiring me.
