My Sketchbook Journey Summer 2024

I am hitting some walls. I am repeating some bad habits. I am going to share all about it and walk through my sketchbooks and what exercises have been helping.

Anybody else hitting some creative block?

I KEEP GETTING IN MY OWN WAY!!!! I had to text my good friend Hannah today and told her I couldn’t have lunch with her next week. 

All I can think is what a weirdo I am and how grateful I am for friends like Hannah who I can be honest with and when I freak out they know it’s going to be ok. I will figure it out and they will eat lunch with me when I am not so frantic. But I hate having to sequester myself away to get things to stick. I need a better way to make habits stick. 

Ok ok, this is sort of a messy middle part of my summer I suppose but the work has taken a great turn and I’m figuring things out and am SOOOO excited! 

But at the same time I am overwhelmed with not feeling like I am settled. I get home and then get my supplies out and finally get into a rhythm then I have to leave again. 

It shows me that rhythm and consistency is a really important part of my growth journey.
