Hello and happy new year my friends.
It has been sometime since my last post – indeed a very long time. I would love to say this has been due to feverish activity on other projects – but I’m afraid it hasn’t been. I have been unable to work due outside commitments. A fair deal of procrastination on my part also dealt the final killer blow to which I have no excuse and cannot rightly justify in any way, shape or form.
I guess I am writing this as a form of non religious confession in an attempt to purge my system of this time spent on things other than drawing.
Some of the things I have noticed during this slump in activity are:
– Loss of confidence.
– Loss of validation and crumbling artistic identity.
These are fairly obvious results from making little to no work in eight months but thought I would record this and anyone in a similar position can take some solace in the fact that they aren’t alone – and that you can read about my ups and downs. One thing I always promised myself whilst writing this blog is that I would be honest. So here I am stating that I must try harder and slightly embarrassed in the fact that by now I should have learnt that discipline is one of the keys to success.
All the best
