    Unhappy Just like waking up from a coma...starting all over?

    I've been in process of applying for LAAFA this Fall. And something happened. My Screen Actors Guild membership was fully activated and now I am a SAG member. I'm technically an actor now.

    I don't know...since my LAAFA application is heavily dependent on VA's vocational rehabilitation program, and they do their best not to cough up the tuitions for the vets. So I am thinking about taking an online storyboarding class while working as a union extra for a while. Yeah, I am talking about Skillshare.

    It's been a year since I decided to give up art, and now I feel like I am learning to walk all over again. Now I do have this fear of empty page of a sketchbook, not knowing what to draw at all. Having OCD, I am tormented by this strange fear of being mocked. And I am 'afraid' of doing some master copies. It's really difficult to get over this fear. I want to be addicted to doodling, just like 20 years ago back in high school...

    Just make a random mark on the empty page.

    There, it is no longer empty. Feel free to doodle on it.

    Or dump the paper in coffee, and I'm not even kidding. Some people find it easier to work on paper with irregularities/texture/colours that have already "ruined" and filled the page. And well, don't show the drawings to anyone.

    Also I would also recommend taking a read at the replies of your older threads, it's more than likely you have gotten advice in those that would be just as applicable now.
