Art & Fear

I've been negligent about this blog... mostly because i've been negligent about my art. With nothing new done, nothing new to put up. 
But i started reading this book, aptly named "Art & Fear" and it got me thinking. I used to be more free, experimental about my work. I would "doodle" across any surface. Filling books up with pictures i would see in  magazines or think up in my head. I'd try every color combination i could think of. I'd even repeat the same posing over and over trying to get it just right. On top of all this i would write, anything everything. Thoughts ideas, even recipes. 
Somehow i lost that. I started thinking more, this is got to be good enough for a portfolio, a reel, an example of my best work, and so the thought of drawing was no longer exciting. I didn't want to try anything because i was scared it would fail. And i've decided to stop that. I will draw, all the time. I will experiment, all the time. And you will see the results here. this was done a couple of days ago. i have already started a new one. I hope you enjoy.

Sounds like a good book.

I often get a little frustrated by what I do and put back into the vault.
