1. Our wedding shower invitations!

     
  2.  
  3. Quick sketch of some new characters. You’re going to be seeing a lot of these ladies over the coming months, and for that I apologize.

    Also, quick reminder that I still have some commission spots open! Snag one before they’re gone!

     
  4. I can’t even express to you the sheer humongousness of my crush on Jacqueline Toboni. If they don’t keep her on for next season, I’m going to cut a bitch.

     
  5. My parents aren’t coming to my wedding, so today I put on some oldies and drew them as children because I’m a soppy sentimentalist. Or maybe because I thought it might somehow make it better to remind myself that some people are just the products of their environments and can never move past that.

    Yeah, I don’t know why I thought that would help, either.

I was really intrigued by the comic (the one about the spaghetti. too funny, btw) and decided to follow you on tumblr. very soon, I realised that we had a LOT in common art wise and the funk that I was in lifted. my question: HOW did you get over your three year non-art funk? what made you pick up the pen/pencil/stylus again?

    The main impetus for me was that one of my friends encouraged me to apply for an artist fellowship about a year ago. I wasn’t drawing at all at the time, so my reaction at first was something along the lines of, “No thanks, I don’t do that anymore.” Eventually, though, it became this kind of fun challenge to try to pull together a portfolio before the deadline. Even though I knew I had no chance of getting the fellowship, I enjoyed having a project to concentrate on. I had just started neurofeedback, too, so my mental and emotional state was improving and the timing was just right to get me on that trajectory towards seriously pursuing art again.

    I feel it’s important to be clear, though, that I’m STILL getting over my funk. I wish it were as easy as just deciding to pick up a pencil again, but I can’t undo years’ worth of psychological damage overnight. It’s taken a lot of time and effort and therapy and outside support, no bootstraps whatsoever, to get me to where I am now. I’m still working to break my bad habits, discipline myself, and draw on a consistent basis. And I definitely still have days where I’m like, “I could draw… OR I could just lie here motionless.” But the point is that I’m consistently getting BETTER. Accepting recovery as a lengthy, ongoing process has helped me be patient with myself and really appreciate how far I’ve come.

    Sorry this answer is probably way longer and more involved than you bargained for.

    Thanks for asking! I’m planning on opening more slots later this month. :D
