Starting Anew

I have been reading a lot lately about creativity and the creative spirit. What I have learned is that you need to be productive if you wish to be creative. I, however, am not productive. I tend to spend most of my time dreaming and wishing I were more creative and more talented, instead of doing it. I am inspired by those who can draw, paint, create, or post every day. This is not realistic for me so I am going to set my goal for posting at least once a week, even if I have to cheat and post an older drawing :) I feel like I am turning over a new leaf and I really want to improve my productivity so I have started this new blog. At my old blog I had 45 posts in 3.5 years. I would like to have more than that each year. Here's to all of you slackers out there who can relate!

I am going to start off posting a drawing I finished about a week or so ago. I bought a cheap journal from Target and have never really used it. I think I paid $6 for it and it has a billion pages in it. The paper is cheap, but that helps me relax and takes the pressure off when I am drawing in it. This drawing was done with a bic pen.

I think I would go mad if I force myself to blog daily when I'm unable to do so. I love your graphic art. I understand the relaxed feeling of drawing/using cheap materials. It makes me feel that if I screw up, I don't waste a lot of money.

I really like this piece. Simple but complicated.
