I still draw, I swear.


A little sneak peek at what I'm working on / have been working on. Lately i just seem to be drawing silly things in my sketchbook or making ugly comics. I started a super-secret tumblr for them, which is probably actually very easy to find if you wanted to look.

I started making myself a nicer website here thinking I could switch it over to my own URL, but it is beyond me how to do this. I suspect I am actually not allowed to.

Life has all been a bit overwhelming lately, all I have the energy for is sleeping (I guess this means i have no energy at all) and reading old science fiction novels. I think i am due for a burst of productivity though, so i am looking forward to that. I have just enlisted a 'life coach' (not actually a life coach, but a very organised and motivating friend) who i have to send reports to every week on how much art i have made. This sounds kind of horrible but it is surprisingly very fun for both of us. It is also so good to keep track of what i actually accomplish.

I am off to the Auckland Art & Craft Fair in two weeks, if you are around and come visit me and tell me you follow my blog i will give you a free postcard. Unless you are lying! But i guess that would be kind of dumb....

I am taking lots of photos of nice things I see, I am by no means a photographer (but i guess i studied it in Art school for a long time) but it is fun and i think i will do a little photo post sometime soon so you can see what my life looks like. I look at the sea a lot, do you like the sea? You will probably like the view from my house, then.

Sleep and reading is always good. I was going through something similar, but my art mojo is coming back slowly.

A friend and I decided to send in reports to each other on our productivity today. Gotta create. It's worse when you have to tell others you haven't been up to much.

Looking forward to the photos Devon!
