So... What happened?
Consider this my mid-life crisis.
In a desperate attempt to make myself feel better I stored all my art telling myself that I would start to fill it up with new pieces that were better.
Sooo... what happened?
I've never been bothered to do what I originally set out to do.
Let me be serious here for a minute. I do not find art cathartic or soothing to the soul or whatever other general fell good terms people try to associate with art. The reason for this is because I am always aware of my own skill and those of my peers. Now I'm not saying I'm trying to compare myself to my peers or that I degrade myself so badly, but that I am aware of certain "gaps" that make me rather frustrated. To me Art is work. Stressful work. Because that is what I am always doing...working. Working on my skills and deficiencies. Working to get better. Working to understand a concept better. Etc. It's also school work, constantly learning, studying, practicing, re-learning, etc. Now compound that with all the other stuff in my life and well I'm a bit stressed out and exhausted.
So what now?
Right now.... nothing. I'm not going to do anything about my empty gallery. It can stay empty for all I care at this moment. If you want to unwatch me, then don't feel bad about doing so.
I haven't stopped drawing just that I'm not posting them here. Sketches, unfinished/finished work can be found over at my tumblr account: [link] and is probably updated more frequently than here. It's not that I hate DA, but that I do, personally, consider it a more official gallery type place than tumblr.
I'll be back some day. Hopefully soon.
