HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!! Hope everyone had an amazing holiday season! I know I did!

I've had no inspiration for over a month now. No inspiration to do anything. How do you combat that? What are you supposed to do when you don't feel like doing anything?

I have to start looking for a job which is never a fun experience, especially in this day and age. But it's got to be done. Wish me luck on that front, I beg you all :]

I've been reading a lot lately - just finished the first novel in the Aubrey/Maturin series, Master and Commander, and am going to start the next one tomorrow! I love them, oh my goodness, these novels have actually made me put down my precious Horatio Hornblower, of which I have just finished another three novels. Nothing like some awesome naval drama.

Back in San Francisco and having a good time, I just wish I could figure out how to get some inspiration to draw or paint or something! Argh!


  1. Try making an inspiration folder using photos from flickr or tumblr that you like. Then when you have a dry spell try to isolate what it is about the pictures that you like, is it atmosphere, composition, a prety typography etc and try to replicate it or incorporate it in your own style

  2. I usually draw inspiration from whatever book or film Im feeling at the moment. Maybe you should use that book you just read and try to express a thought of it through art.
