Oh, hey conceptart.org... long time no see.
So, before I start up another sketchbook, I wanted to confess something.
I already had a sketchbook here, began to participate in certain events and drew on a daily basis, and felt that I really improved and liked where my style was going.
And then, it suddenly stopped. I just stopped drawing. That happened around July 2010, and didn't end until October 2010. And I still don't know the reason behind it. Maybe it was procrastination, maybe depression, maybe simple laziness. I cannot say for sure.
I am now trying to get back to it, but it has become harder and harder, and I loose more motivation as time goes by. Mostly because I am simply frustrated with my current education/situation, and that is reflected in my motivation/drive, but also because I have very little time and energy to practice and really get into art again. (Usually I'm in school from 8 am to 6 pm, and often I have to do stuff for school afterwards)
But I want to change that now... I want to really get back to daily practice, to setting myself goals and to LEARN, and RELEARN the things I seem to have forgotten. I may have a really bad time-schedule to work with now, but that should not hinder me from doing art, should it? Nor should my frustration or alarming tendency to procrastinate. I am the only one who is able to change that. So I just need to start.
So yeah... here I am again, conceptart.org.
Beginning a new sketchbook with an older, personal piece. Kinda ironic. But I still smile when I see it, so I thought it might be fitting.
