Here it is,
Friday night and I’m all alone. Just me and the T.V. But I decided that tonight, instead of wasting my time in front of the tube, I’d really make an effort and work on some drawing. I didn’t really have anything in particular in mind, but I was interested in taking a look and re-drawing something I drew last night.
I told myself that I would sit down from 7-9pm and just draw, try to be myself in my drawings, and not to fear any silliness, ugliness, or so called mistakes. I also took some time to go back to older drawings and ideas to see if I could find connections between all of my seemingly disconnected ideas. I find that when I go back I sometimes find something really inspiring. An old idea becomes new again! Even something that I had maybe quickly drawn at one point, and never given any thought to can later become a little gem, or a nugget of inspiration. It’s nice to think that maybe I can begin to find inspiration from my own work. It feels like I am fueling up! I am excited to keep up with this little regime. I never really thought I would be able to find the energy to work at night, but I gave it a shot, and I am glad I did!
Hope you are all out and about enjoying your Friday nights! I’m off to bed. I have a big wonderful day ahead of me tomorrow!
