The other day, someone asked me why I don’t draw anymore, and it kind of made me think and made me a little sad because all I could answer was that I don’t have time for it.
I somehow lost the passion that I used to have for it. I tried so hard to get back into drawing outside of my profession again—-I tried with tumblr challenges, sketchbook collabs, collecting themes and ideas that I have on my Evernote, but somehow I can’t fully commit to it anymore and it’s frustrating because I know that if I’m passionate enough for it I will find a way to make time, but I can’t :/
I’ve been drawing since forever…my mom saved my first drawing when I was 3, I still have tons of envelopes and folders with all the drawings and cards that I’ve done for myself and for everyone since I was 3 up to probably high school.
I used to be involved in the local comics industry when I was still in college….my friends and I formed a group in the last 2 years of high school (they succeeded and have their own comics and digital art studio now) then the leading comic company during that time took me in as an apprentice and I eventually became a locally published comic artist
But it wasn’t what I thought it would be and I think that in the end I realized that it’s not what I wanted to do, and on hindsight I think that may be the reason why I lost the passion that I had for it because I got so disillusioned when I finally got what I thought I wanted (to become a comic artist). I probably stopped drawing then.
Sigh. I really really want to get back to it again though…not creating comics, but drawing illustrations and creating some digital paintings.
Last year was the first time that I’ve drawn/digitally painted something that’s not work related and I just feel that everyone improved and left me behind and it sucks.
I’m still really excited about the animated short that I plan on finishing next year. I hope that will somehow reignite the passion that I’ve been trying to resurrect for a few years now :/
