Hiding away in the studio/office while drawing and listening to the radio. Working on new projects that are both scary and exciting.
Came is forever the best studio mate, he sits quietly and keeps me company whilst I work, he snoozes.
I have been in a super January blues, post 30 (something I will write about in more detail when I am up to it) slump. I have not felt like myself and have not been inspired to do anything and feel rather down and miserable and stuck. Days like today are good for me. I nestle away in my little creative cave and just draw, go for family lunches and generally appreciate being in my own little space. My space is busy and vibrant and full of strange collections and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Although it would be nice that it was a bit neater and warmer as its bloody arctic in here. Hot water bottles, gloves and blankets are in order. I swear its colder outside.
I have neglected this here space a bit, along with the blog and I don’t like it. I work best when I have a project (or 5) on the go. I like to be busy and feel like I am being useful. I don’t like the boring long drag of the weekends that only serve as a reminder that I am not doing enough of what I love and enjoy that what I do love and enjoy becomes a chore and not filled with the good stuff. I need to remember the good stuff get on with it. I long to feel inspired and alive with ideas and passion again. I feel like I have had the wind knocked out of me for a bit and I don’t know why.
I want to live a healthier, cleaner more inspired life and for that I need to have ideas, inspiration and other creative people around me doing massively inspiring things. I miss that community. I also long for nature and the good old life.
I am going to put a few blogs together to help me refocus and find my way again. In the meantime I will hide away in here.
