pe·cu·liar
/pəˈkyo͞olyər/

adjective

About me:

As an artist, I'm always trying new things, and I tend to go through art-related 'phases.'
On any given Monday (or Tuesday or Wednesday...), I will decide resolutely to take on a new project in a different area of art -- to devote time to that project and that project only until it's done. But, since I apparently have commitment issues, you could very well find me starting yet another project by that time next week.

Now, I like to think that I have the ability to pick one task and focus solely on it until I finish, and I promise you, in some cases this is true. But, I view art as a wide realm of expressive freedom, so why limit myself here?

So, rather than tethering my imagination to the post of drawing or keeping it behind the fences of the field of needlework, I let it roam free, briefly grazing upon patches of literature and photographic interest.
It goes wherever it pleases, sometimes exploring new ground, but inevitably comes back to those areas that it knows well. Though these places are now familiar to it, there's always something new or previously overlooked to be found there, which brings about feelings of both excitement over the unknown and a certain amount of nostalgia.

In conclusion, I leave you with the reassurance that I have no intention to stop making art anytime soon, and that I'll continue to try new things and keep it interesting. Cheerio!


If you've made it through reading all of that and have managed to not be confused, congratulations! If not, then here's a bunch of stamps as consolation.

I'm back 





I, um, that is to say...





Well, short version...Not Dead.

Perhaps I should have jumped out of a cake!


Okay, enough of that -- down to the what & why of my substantial hiatus.

It all started with my gradual decline of dA activity late last year.
Around mid-November, whilst in the midst of the 11th installment of the Doctor portrait series, I suffered a burnout of my own making. Starting with the 1st Doctor portrait back in January, I strove to complete each drawing quicker than the previous one. Eventually, I hit a wall; my response was unfortunately one of inaction rather than a slower pace.


Over the winter months, I found myself in a state of despair. Catalysts for this included the amount of schoolwork I had left, my impending graduation, and the looming self-set deadline of getting a job before finishing school.  All this compelled me to only drift further away from deviantArt, and in a way, my creativity. NaNoEmo 21 - :downinthedumps: 


In late February, I finally secured my much strived-for job at a local fast food chain (oh boy, such accomplishment! Eye Roll).  Initially, it was a practically overwhelming source of stress -- during my first month there, I was physically losing my appetite due to it.
Over time (and after a couple of emotional breakdowns at work Stare), I've learned to manage my anxiety as best I can.  So far, I've gone four entire weeks without any major 'incidents,' but am now looking for a different job.


My current mindset has me focusing on "what's next," rather than "how will I ever get out of this?" like it was a couple of months ago.
All of this mess has -- in a roundabout way -- inspired me to 'reboot' my online activity on dA and etsy.

So, in summary, my life has moved foward in many ways.
During this process, I drifted from the things that anchored me: both the comfort of routine and the excitement of new prospects brought by a creative outlet.  Now, slowly, I'm coming back.  I'm dropping my familiar anchor into new waters.


Thank you for reading. Heart
