As an artist, it is not uncommon to go through various phases of creativity. Sometimes I am very active, creating new pieces daily, while other times I am relatively inactive and can go for months without creating a single drawing. This does not mean I am uninspired or losing interest. It means I am slowly building up ideas, reserving energy, and deciding what I want to do differently in the future. This is normal and in fact, healthy.
I’ve been writing more lately. More than drawing or painting. I write poems and often write in my journal about my day, how I’m feeling, what’s new, etc.
If I have any real “fans” out there in the world, I hope they understand how an artist goes through different phases. My ideas are evolving and my change in lifestyle is effecting my desire to create. I only hope that I haven’t already committed to a certain style, of which people expect to see from me.
I feel a major change happening. Stick with me. Don’t leave. I’ll be back with a collection of bangers just as soon as I find the energy.
