Quote of the day.

This is what i feel like today, anyone who is creative knows exactly how i feel, when i put pencil to paper and nothing comes out correctly this is the statement that runs through my head oh dear the frustration! So this is basically all i have drawn. This quote is rather negative, i am totally having brain block right now! All i want to do is draw but all my people end up looking fugly and on my little trip out to the shops i forgot to pick up a new moleskin, i am really picky when it comes to what i draw on. I have about a million sketchbooks but i am yet to find the perfect paper. Oh the drama of being an artist. Don't worry i will probably feel totally different about my drawing ability tomorrow.
On a lot happier note i decided it was finally time to upgrade my little £3.95 phone to a splendidly wonderful iphone 4s, I have been thinking about this for awhile and i am really happy that i have, it is amazing. I never ever buy anything for myself so walking into that store and buying the iphone was kind of a big deal to me, but i am enjoying it. I hope you are all having a wonderful saturday?

  3. I feel exactly the same today. My creative ability seems to have disappeared and I am constantly second guessing myself :( Hopefully a good nights sleep and it will all come back!

    Glad you are enjoying your new iphone. I am completely addicted to mine so am trying to wean myself off it!!

  5. I hope you get back into your drawing soon! If it makes you feel any better, I can't draw to save my life EVER...even my attempts at stick men look wonky :(

  9. Whilst we all know this isn't true,at least you drew something! Creative block happens to everyone!

    I hope you've given yourself some headspace, and it comes back.

  10. It totally bugs me that sketchbooks have such AWFUL paper. Why is it all so smooth and processed? I want a paper with some tooth! I want a deckled edge! I want my ink to slide into it, to spread out a little, to become part of the paper, not just to sit on top of it and rub off over time.

  11. I know how you feel! I always get that feeling, especially when starting a new sketchbook. But I think your drawings are gorgeous :).
    Travelogue handbooks are pretty good, paper wise, hope that helps! X

  13. Story of my life! And I need to learn so hopefully when I do my art foundation it'll get a bit easier.
    But it annoys me when you say the above quote and then people shout back at you "But you must be able to draw, you're an artist!"
