Texture and pattern

There is currently no rhyme or reason behind the work i am doing. Trying to get back into the swing of things again after being absent for so long. Do you as an artist or creative person have long spells of doing nothing? Let me know. x

Random Statements

I WANT TO HAVE A JOB

I feel I need to try another aspect of creativity to get me back motivated about my own work again.

Weekends are when I at least have the excuse of it being the weekend to be lazy

I love art but can’t seem to find me own style.

 

My brain is like a murky pond, it needs to be drained.

Where to begin…?

 

I’m bored

I feel guilty about having other interests

I want to be stretched both physically and mentally

 

I imagine my life in 5 years but nothing has changed

 

I’m impatient!

Back to motivation

I want my enjoyment to be my career

 

I need to move

I like everyday people who inspire me.

I am in awe of those that do.

DO I HAVE TO?…REALLY?

Bollocks! That is literally the only way I can think to describe things. God, I thought I was going to be so productive in 2014. I am well aware that we’re only a month into the year but if you knew what I was like…oh this isn’t good!

I just can’t seem to find the motivation to do anything at all. I start a piece of work and then about half way through I think what the fuck is the point of this? and end up scrapping it.

I’ve written before about my struggle with anxiety and depression and while I have made a lot of progress I think I’ve still managed to let it get a hold of me too much now. It feels like a vicious circle at times. I don’t go out to work as that is still a bit of a challenge for me but I’m very lucky to have my parents supporting me while I get myself together. I’m really not very good with going out in public but I think I’m really going to have to push myself this year as I need that outlet where I can bounce ideas off other artists. Or even just getting inspired and motivated. I don’t think I’ll achieve anything by staying at home!

WP_000501 Today was the first time in a while that I felt like doing any drawing. These are some of William Morris’ roses. I actually found it very relaxing doing this which is something I haven’t felt in a while when producing art. There’s always that niggle at the back of my head that the work must in some way produce money and I’m starting to find that overwhelming now. I don’t know how others manage it, that balance of creating something they are happy with but also that people would want to buy.

Onward and up though eh?!

Hope all is well with everyone.

Take care,

Doodles and What’s Coming Up

colouringbook

 

Haven’t been about on here for a while, been busy with the craft fairs and trying to motivate myself to do some new and interesting work – which is actually really quite difficult!

I entered this doodle into a colouring book competition…it did not make the final cut!All the PG things I drew never turned out right, so then I went a bit risqué. I love this doodle even if it didnt get chosen, I knew it wouldn’t but I was still glad I entered it.

In other news I have some wrapping paper being printed and it should be here within the week. I’m really looking forward to showing it to you all.

Hope you’re all well.
