It’s been about a year since I’m REALLY sort of productive artistically, and I figured out what I have to do to get back on my feet, even if it’s something that sounds completely stupid to have as a “realization”.
I have to stop being afraid and actually draw.
Some drawings I publish here from now on might be a bigger mess than what I normally used to post, and that’s because I have to get used to the idea of exposing my work to other people again, and to the idea that mistakes aren’t unerasable stains that stay with you forever.
I’m finally admitting to myself: Yes, I am a beginner. I am ignorant. I am unskilled. And that’s okay. I’ll just have to endure this period of mediocrity by drawing and writing a LOT until I get Sort of Better at This.
