Maybe some of you have already noticed that I'm not posting new works nowadays. There are a few reasons for this.
First and most obviously, I cannot use my scanner, because there isn't any driver for my current operating system. I have some traditional drawings I could submit,
but I lack the time and motivation to figure out how to make good quality photos of them with a camera.
Secondly, my top priority is to study for my final exams at the university. I needed some rest, but now I'm back to actively studying again, and drawing is a distraction that I can't allow myself right now, no matter how much I sometimes miss it.
Finally, I am kind of at a watershed period right now. The way I have been creating doesn't work anymore. It was practice and practice and somewhere along the lines I've forgotten how to enjoy it and be creative, not to mention that it didn't even take me anywhere - because you can't just develop if you don't have any aims, if your heart isn't in it, if you can't even do your job attentively. That's what I've figured out in the past few months, when I allowed myself to stop drawing mindlessly and stepped back to actually see what I'm doing. I need a different approach, and I'm not gonna resume drawing unless I feel capable of creating freely, experimenting, trying different themes and enjoying what I'm doing. Any other effort is just draining my limited energies, and I need them right now.
That being said I constantly have several things in my mind I want to put down on paper, and I'm inspired daily to the extent it almost hurts to not create anything, but I need to have discipline right now, until I finish my studies.
It's better if you don't hope for new art in the next few months, but I still will be reading my messages and e-mails regularly, so feel free to contact me.
