...i'm there...


i've done it, i'm there, i've hit the wall...or i am starting to. i just realized as i started this post that the photo i put up in november, me with the headphones, is the same me as sits here today. headphones on, at my desk...four straight months (six really...i just didn't have the headphones in september or october) of sitting, thinking, staring, sketching, painting, listening to music all the time, getting irritated at music, getting new music, not listening to it because i'm not good at committing to new music, listening to audiobooks all the time, getting fussy about audio books, "watching" interweb tv all the time, becoming an interweb tv zombie, getting bored with all of my procrastination tricks. i'm starting to feel a little bleary-eyed.

and don't ask about my studio...because it is a hell hole.
actually, you don't even have to ask...i took a photo. see leonard on the floor...he's not sleeping, he's expressing shame.


but it's good. it's all good. it's character building. and come march...i'm taking some time off, doing a lot of good nothing, writing ridiculous posts and officially setting up my studio.

i too suffer from those exact "fussy music" procrastination tricks. one of them is also checking art blogs....oops! ;)

actually when i'm totally absorbed i realize sometimes that nothing was even playing and i was drawing just fine!

i loved your hansel and gretel.

I have no talent, so I can't relate. All I know is that you rock. Period. When are you going to mass produce on etsy? Still haven't snagged a print. I have your books and they are so nice. Me like.
