Honesty time / Vent ahead: ✨
I think my art has improved, but my creativity is nothing like it used to be. This is a flick through one of my old sketchbooks (probably about two years old), and every time I sat down to doodle I had a new idea, ideas which just seemed to fly from my hand onto the paper without planning.
And you know what? I loved doing it. Every second of sketching I was wholeheartedly happy. I felt at peace. It calmed me.
Now, it’s not like that, and I’d give anything to enjoy and really feel my art again like I used to. I don’t seem to be able to think of ideas as easily, everything is a struggle or needs inspiration. I don’t know if it’s stress, or time, or practice, or what - but it’s not the same, and opening my sketchbook makes me feel like a failure and just reminds me of what I’m not doing anymore. It’s really hard.
Anywho, that’s my little vent over. The song is “On My Own” by TroyBoi (feat. nefera) also, Instagram cropped the video so apologies for the sudden cut at the end xx
