Yeah, the title pretty much says it all. I'm going to be taking a little break from art for the moment.
Maybe it's that planetary alignment that just happened recently.
Maybe it's the fact that I've been feeling in kind of a rut lately going thru the motions of my daily routine.
Maybe it's the fact I've been really cracking down on looking for gainful employment since my recent venture beyond the world of academia (i.e. graduated college and still looking for work.)
Maybe it's the fact that drawings have gained some unexpected popularity; by which I mean there used to be like two people I ever got notes from, and now there's like 6 people who note me on a regular basis (which for an anti-social type like myself is probably pushing it).
Maybe it's the thought that all my long term projects would take time and planning that I just wouldn't have the time for regular at anyway, so maybe I should concentrate on those.
Maybe I just need some rest because I've running around all over the place I've yet to find a decent night's sleep.
Or maybe, just maybe, I just need a moment to refresh my inspiration.
Whatever the reason, I'm gonna be taking a break. But before you get worried about me going AFK or quitting anything, then you'd be wrong. I'm still going to try some form of communication in the near future. I watch Picarto, learned how to use Skype, and AIM and a whole bunch more stuff, so odds are I'll frequenting those places, while my creative juices get flowing again. And if you want to know how my day was, I'd probably answer. But if you have a question art related then... I might take a little long to respond.
In the meantime, I hope I can find some new inspiration soon. Hope everyone understands, the hardships of a moody artist. But hey, since nobody's paying me, and I'm only doing this fun and I'm not feeling the funzies, I can definitely feel better about holding back the throttle a bit. It's like waiting until your 18 to smoke, because you know it's not gonna become a habit, so you can take it or leave it when you feel like. That's something I'm glad I waited to do, especially since the rising price of tobacco. But whatever the habit, art or smoking or whatever, I'm cutting back for now.
More information, as it develops.
