Break on through… I've been feelin a bit artistically clogged lately. Too much art director cheese possibly?

I've spent the past 6 years with an art director sayin'- make it like this, make it like that. Now I am on my own and I have to be my own art director. It's been pretty difficult for me.

My boyfriend says-"just pull from what you like and add yourself to it'…. But me likes so much.:) He also says "stop surfing DeviantArt  or I swear I'll block that site". "The hell you will." I say back.

I want to develop my own style but I'm afraid to end up with a shtick. It is a fine line I guess.

It's great when you see a piece of art and know who made it just by the way it was done, but a style can also be a trap when you do it just because it feels comfortable.

I'm still learning so I guess it will be awhile before I get to that stage. I want art to be fun again for me and not just a job. So for now I'm going to make bubble gum pieces like when I was a kid and hope something grows out of the mold.

as Alex Grey once said, well I can't quite remember it perfectly at the time he spoke, but it was something to the effect of "The Artist sometimes needs to be the Hermit in order to reflect and produce that Great Work"

yes! its always cool to reinvent, pull from your childhood! revert, but only half way!! hehe.
Im trying to do that too, but if I succeed, you will see a lot of impalements. I was a morbid little girl. :D

I hate the whole 'create your own style'/'be inventive and don't get stuck in own gimick' delima. its a huge struggle for many.

to stop surfing DA?! ha!
I get told that too. But honestly, DA is the biggest artist block hammer ive ever had. I create so much more just because im excited to share and get better.
