Its been a while since I've done one of these, almost a year in fact. A lot of stuff happened all over the place since then the big world stuff obvioulsy but also on the smaller scale of my personal life. Overall it was a pretty good year for me which is always good.

 I think last year saw the most creative output I've ever had judging by quantity and overall quality which feels good, I'm hoping to to top it this year and so far its not looking so bad. Unfortunately motivation has been hard to come by lately especially with all the distractions the past few months have had to offer, I lost the past week and a half to Titanfall 2 online which was fun while it lasted but the more I think about it the ore embarassed I am of it because I haven't sunk so much time into an online game by myself for a while and it just feels gross to have neglected art for so long. But I'm back to it now and am going back at it with some loose plans and some mostly written scripts I'll hopefully be able to turn into little comics or zines. There are a lot of doubts I have floating around about where I should go with my art, I'm trying to keep up with personal studies and staying on top of improving which I definitely need but beyond that obvious need its difficult to exist as an online mostly presence while staying only traditional, the problem is I don't enjoy the digital process and I want to have fun doing art especially if I am going to pursue it but that's irrelevant for the most part considering the only way forward really is to embrace digital and I know that. Its very frustrating and I'm sort of just venting at this point. Regardless I guess we'll see. 

Also the art forum bums me the fuck out, man.

Oh man. If it's any condolence I know how you feel. MMOs are my virtual crack of choice. To make matters worse, my pc bottomed out along with potentially years of writing and drawing concepts.

Not to mention, I haven't drawn digitally in months since I'm still working on fixing it all. It's pretty painful lad, I still instinctively try to ctrl+z with pencil and paper.

But you know what they say. Think of the one thing you absolutely love doing, then think of the second thing you enjoy doing. Then make a career out of the latter.
