I always do this. I'll start a gallery or a blog or a feed or whatever and I'll update it and enjoy and then I'll get distracted. Sometimes I'll just get distracted by another site and sometimes it'll be something bigger. The last few months I've been insanely distracted. My roommate Mayeko moved back to TO, my job got a little more demanding and slowly the fact that I work two jobs was starting to take it's toll. I'm tired a lot, and I hadn't been taking care of myself. I've been sick a lot, which was a huge warning sign. I used to never get sick, in fact it was a point I was proud of. Never having sick days. Now I'm sick once a week.
So I cut myself off from everything, shut it down, tried to build back up. And I've been doing groovey. I've been taking things slower, spreading my time out, life's been getting easier. I've been doodling more, but never anything complete. I still find it hard to commit to just fun art.
The problem with drawing for a living, I suppose, is once art becomes work it stops becoming play. So I have to work on seperating the work art from the play art and get back on my feet.
I have a shift switch all next week, which should be enough of a change to feel like a vacation. And hopefully I can draw the fuck out of life during that vacation. And then i can start updating this gallery and my blog and all other things again.
