Personal Little Art Thoughts

Just writing and doing a little bit of drawing, not enough painting (as usual) but I am inspired. Luckily, not too inspired, like I was kind of complaining about the other day. I’ve been having these personal little art thoughts though.

Over Inspired

Yesterday I typed “over-inspired” into Google because that was how I was feeling. I wondered if anyone else in the world felt the same way. Much to my surprise, a bunch of articles came up. Not just from artists, but from people in all kinds of creative industries. Okay, so I’m not the only one out there. But what does that even mean anyway?

Odds and Ends

This thing is kind of finished now, I just have to wait until it’s dry so I can scrape a white line into it like this (this is Photoshopped for now):

Unicorns and Rainbows

I know it might seem like it, but I’m really not feeling all that much better. Way back when Dan came to me, I was pretty down and out and he seemed to bring me out of feeling like crap, so you’d think that this guy would do me the same service. This is Mars and he came out of my pencil recently.

Little Candid Things

Still down and out, but I’ve been trying to work a bit to get my mind off of shit.

Happy Birthday, Me.

Even with my brand new air conditioning unit in my studio, it just doesn’t seem to cut it in this extreme heat wave we’ve been having. Yesterday and today it’s well above 100 degrees and it’s not been fun. Yesterday I was nauseous and had a headache all day, and I tried to drink as much water as I could. I probably shouldn’t have been outside though. I had to drive to the San Fernando Valley, and that was just idiotic. By the time I got home, I’d already melted.
