i have a new home. new job, new furniture, new outlook, new future, new friends.
i have been drawing more. i sit alone, after work, in a nearby starbucks, and just draw. not every day, my schedule doesn't allow for that. but when i sit down and tune out the world with some music i can relax enough to let things happen.
i find that i have to let a few random drawings out first. kind of a purging of the subconscious. if i come to the table with an agenda, no drawings happen. i have to relax and just let the drawing take shape. sometimes its crap, sometimes its gold, sometimes nothing happens...
but yesterday i did three sketches. the time before that three. the time before that two... i think, i hope, i have found a way to clear out the artist block that has been plaguing me since art school burnout nearly ten years ago.
once i am done letting the subconscious go poopy on the page, i find that i can draw something that i want a little more easily.
