Time is just melting! I have to go back to school this upcoming Monday. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. Last year, my studies kinda took a lower priority so, I kinda screwed up. But, this year, I hope not to repeat that.
I've been kind of floating in this sea of thoughts over the last couple months. I really don't feel like I'm setting any new goals for myself, artistically. I've just kind've been creating content and seeing where it goes from there. But, I really should start thinking about my career. I've been taking graphic design courses for the last couple/few years and as fun of a field of work as it is, I just don't know if that's where my heart lies.
I've been drawing my whole life and wanted to be a cartoonist/comic book artist of sorts ever since I was a child. I still want to do that now. But, lately, I've been aimlessly drawing. I haven't really worked on any of the characters I used to focus on in years. I mean, we're talkin' years of planning, writing and character design... Just sitting, stagnant in the back of my head. I'd love to start working on that stuff again. Especially since I've learned a lot more about art and... myself through taking art classes over the last few years. But, I fear that my previous ideas aren't good enough.
I'm in a slump of sorts, I guess.
I'm not gonna stop drawing and I still want to do this for the rest of my life. I just don't know what direction I'm going in. Maybe comics aren't my thing? Maybe graphic design isn't either? Perhaps I'm cut out for something else, as far as visual art goes.
Until I know, I'm just gonna keep doing what I do and I hope you all enjoy my work.
