☆ The Creative Blues

(Advance apologies for my post, I need a whiney rant...)

I am feeling so bleh at the moment, cranky, tired, uninspired, unmotivated, frumpy and stale.....

I am not sure how to move on. I don't want to give up. I don't want to repeat the patterns of the past. I want to push forward.

I have managed (barely!) to keep up with my October challenge, but I haven't even started my IF drawing, (even though I have a fair idea of what I am going to do), or finished the project I started for Fred (it's 99% there)....

I drew this this morning - just doodling, sorting through the crap in my head:

and went for a huge walk with the beasties - Bean & Bug (which Bean didn't want to go on, and complained the entire way 'I go home, mummy, I go home - thank god for ipods!) and I feel a little better, but to be honest it is all I can do not to go to the fridge and scarf down the tim tams that are calling my name - loudly...

Have you ever felt bleh and had the creative blues? How did you move through it? 



  1. I make myself draw when I hit the art blues I pick up one of my sons books and copy the characters.

    I make myself draw every day no matter how I feel only missed two days so far and thats because my son had a tummy bug and pucked up on the bed during my evening time.

  2. How old are your bean and bug :) my little spud has just hit 3 years old.

  3. Bean is 2 years old and Bug is 4 months - so both full of live and characters in their own right! Thats a great idea - copying the characters from the girls books - there are so many beautiful illustrations out there... Think I'll go and hunt one down now! Cheers x
