As you can see, I am trying a different approach for my blog and newsletter: writing them by hand! With illustrations. I struggled as I got bored with things I did. I have made cartoons, comics, illustrations for stories and plays, blogs and newsletters, tutorials, webcomics, books.Then, I realized they were all facets of the same thing! They are all text with drawn illustrations. I decided to make that my domain of exploration from now on: anything where text and illustration are combined in some way. Cartoons and illustrations for plays become different facets of the same diamond. If that makes sense.It is now all just a part of the same thing, and that gives me a lot of rest. I am building a body of work. An eclectic one, but still. There is a certain unity in it. Lots of things where I combine text with illustrations.It suggests other things I can try. I could, for example, make figurative paintings with text. Or: a hand-written newsletter with illustrations!If you find yourself losing interest in what you do, or if you find yourself jumping from topic to topic, try to find a way to redefine what you do. Enlargen the creative space you explore! Feel like a child wandering into a vast uncharted territory of a toy store. Be creative today! PracticeDrawingThis
