bye birdsite

well been busting ass all week, still not done quite today, but i should get a break for a bit after today, and get some time to catch up with things needing done and perhaps get some art things done. and let me say.. roofing in this spring heat.. damn...its a kick in the ass.

3 hours of sleep and half a days work, i just cant muster the energy...

im riding the fence today, i want to do things, i want to do everything but at the same time i dont.

but yesterday i bought a dremel kit to do my little woodworking thing. its a small little side hobby i suppose.

but this weekends supposed to rain so against my usual rules i may arts this weekend. im really trying to decide what to do, i could do a bunch of sketches or, i could try to create more theories for my colors, shades, and lights. 🤔

did not get the chance to do anymore art, it was a busy day, spent most of the evening though relaxing and catching up through the second season of attack on titan with my beau.

even did a little woodworking before then. it may not have been productive for art but it was still a great day, start to finish ^-^

so i burned out my brain yesterday just theorizing, thinking, and staring at pieces of my work...

no one tells you or really talks about it, how much you work your brain over being an artist but you do.

when theres something youre trying to accomplish like for me, better color, shade, and lighting theory..

you die a little for your art. but when you see the growth, you live again.

YAY finally feeling not sick! little pooped as a leftover but certainly feeling better

now what to do!?

okay so not with my hopes did i recover completely, sickness traveled from chest to throat but there is good news

im hacking stuff up, im not feeling quite as shite, im crossing my fingers the end of this day and a good nights rest again and ill feel right as rain

work never stopped till last thursday, then all hell breaks loose through the weekend.. i was a wreck, but i have good news! i took some me time, i carved some wood, a hobby i didnt know i could like, i grounded, i centered and i felt great, also i bought outward for me and my beau to play, i think maybe today.. maybe... i might try and doodles

another long ass day of work.. phew im tired, but good news is one more and i should be relatively free for a whole week! ill get soem time outside of working on the car to get some art done most likely YAY

three weeks it took to ACTUALLY get around to it but i finally managed to get my art pad back, without any bullshit happening this time. although unfortunately i came to find my partners ps4 was stolen...dont you just love people?

anyway im glad nothing else came up missing ESPECIALLY my pad..

bad news? ive got a ton of work coming up and i may not have the time to sit down and get back to it but i should be able to within a week get going again! YAAAAAAY

okay! so after i go do some construction framing work today i should be headed back to grab some things left behind INCLUDING MY ART PAD

😱

and to try and celebrate and make sure the month or so i havent been able to do anything at all im probably going to draw...
something...
so dirty your grandmas gonna slap you
yeah you, not me
i didnt make you look at it
shhh its okay...

Creative industries are rife with survivorship bias.

Trying to make a living as a creator is a risky proposition. Taking on student loans is a massive gamble. Quitting your job to pursue creating can be disastrous.

Think carefully before you leap without a safety net.

THERE IS NO SHAME IN WORKING A "NORMAL" JOB TO SUPPORT YOURSELF.

It's fine, you're every bit the same amount of a "real" creator as the person who makes their money from creating.

Money does not legitimize you as a creator.

well works been on the slow route, which means i have yet to get back to get my art pad, although theres something going on today hopefully a little cash on hand will help get there and i can take my downtime finally and draw again!

btw 60 followers! nice, thank you guys who follow for whatever reason especially if its my art ^-^

i really need to find the time and bit of moolah in order to go get my pad now that my heads getting right and around the art block supplied by some previous stress.. the ideas are filtering back in.. i hope a month or so in absolution hasnt made me rusty
