Artist, interrupted

I have pretty much dropped most of my activities in every day life. I haven’t updated the blog in  months and ignored my shops (though luckily I did sell a few prints and cards). I have made exactly one new artwork in 2013:

I wanted to make a new custom card for my boyfriend. And it took me far too much time and energy to finish it at all in time before Valentine’s.

Basically what happened is that I had a bit of a nervous breakdown in December and am dealing with a burnout since. I’m tired every day, all day. I’m constantly stressed even without immediate deadlines.

And did I mention tired? I am so, so very tired.

I’m trying though. Very slowly I’ve been gathering creative juices and looking for inspiration everywhere. But I don’t have the energy yet. I haven’t even uploaded the new love card design yet because I don’t have the energy. And I know it is probably only 5 minutes of work. But it would take me all day.

I’m just not there yet. But I will be eventually.

  1. I’m so sorry you are having such a hard time. I went through something like this a few years ago. You are doing the right thing to just keep trying and working on trying. It will make things that will eventually get better anyway, get better faster. I wish you all the best.

      Thank you for your kind words. My problems are chronic and I’ve been here many times before, once in a far worse state. It’s just really… annoying… that I’m at the end of my studies and I just need to get over that last bump.
