No more art block

Might come off as annoying when posting this but it’s not my intention. Just want to share a piece of my mind!

There are countless of “my art sucks, oh no, fml, art block, what is art, why me, etc” memes/drawings/parodies from really good artists out there. I know most of them are meant to be funny – and they are to some extent! – but some of them just make think: why are you doing this to yourself?

When this phrase got to me: “Doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you don’t stop” it was much easier for me to stay peaceful in difficult times of creating and lack of free time to draw. I figured it’s important to learn to stay proud about my progress no matter how slow I am some days or if something turns out like shit constantly for weeks. It’s crucial to fail to succeed!

A really skillful artist friend of mine once said something like this:

The more you learn the harder it gets. It’s not supposed to get easier, so don’t make it harder for yourself!

Couldn’t agree more! 🙂
