Last night I think I discovered the source of my long lingering artblock. 

My style.

I’ve been trying to push my style to be more fluid and animated, but not to the point where it gets oversimplified or “cartoony.” That sort of style doesn’t really fit with the subject matter I like to draw most of the time. But I’m kind of stuck in this weird limbo between my current style and how far I want to push it.

I also have the problem of how I draw men versus women. I tend to put a lot more detail into male faces whereas I tend to draw women very simplified (and I really need to step back from the huge eyes. Getting that “same face” syndrome going on).

I really don’t like my style in its current state and I feel that that is the main issue I haven’t been pushing myself to draw more. I’m going to have to bite the bullet, cut myself off from distractions and throw myself back into it, because this lack of creating is taking its toll on my well being. I have SO many things I want to draw, but my current skillset isn’t where I want it to be and I end up getting too frustrated and quit.

All that said, I have been making progress. Slow progress, but progress nonetheless. I just need to keep the frustration from getting to the point where it keeps me from trying.

Oh artist woes :P

tim hortons is my life, and without it i would be nothing. it is what fuels me, what makes me want to see the light of tomorrow. wikipedia defines it is “a Canadian multinational fast casual restaurant” but it is so much more. tim hortons is indescribable as it is not solely canada’s most beloved chain coffee and bake shop, but a full experience. even the scent of fresh coffee brewing, hot donuts right out of the oven, and the faint lingering of burned bagels is enough to set my head spinning. you can’t simply just ask a canadian to define tim hortons, because tim hortons defines a canadian

Bury me in this.

*SCREAMS*

Get buried in this, get found by archeologists ten thousand years later, get presumed some kind of monarch or holy figure.

Also my eyelid has been twitching all day and it’s weirding me out.

Eyelid stop it.

I always try to do my best to be really pleasant to the people I’m interacting with when going out, like to get food or to appointments or shopping, etc. Like today for example, I had to go get blood taken and the nurse was having trouble finding my (itty bitty) veins and I made some offhand joke about them hiding and we ended up having a nice little conversation and she was able to vent a bit about the crazy morning and the rude people she had to deal with and she seemed a lot happier when I left.

I guess that’s why I don’t understand how people can be so rude to those looking after or serving them. I just think of what it would be like to deal with nasty people all day and it makes me want to be nicer and ask how their day is going and show genuine interest and engage them. You never know what kind of day someone is having.

This also comes from the person who thinks that men who don’t have beards are women.

And he’s actually surprised that that’s offensive.
