Just randomness that might be on my mind

Getting back on the horse


Random fact:  People used to consider me somewhat of an artist.  I was the type of person that when bored would doodle and sketch small things in the corners of notebook pages, or down the margins, or on napkins, or anything I could find when the urge hit me.  Easier simpler times I suppose.  I find myself now, as I get older and farther from those more carefree days, the desire to get back on the horse and start sketching again, and I do find moments where I get to the point of putting pencil to paper, but it rarely goes from there.  I can’t just spit out random images from my brain anymore, not like I used to.  If I accomplish anything artistic now, it has to have a purpose, a drive, a passion behind it.  The simple passion for drawing and seeing my wild imagination interpreted in 2D format has passed, passion has been replaced with purpose.  If a drawing or a sketch doesn’t have a purpose, it doesn’t seem to find realization.  In approximately 3 years, I have completed only two things beyond simple cartoon sketches to entertain my children.  One is the painting of zoo animals in my daughter’s nursery, and the second is a sketch of the same daughter when she first started to raise her head.

Hopefully within the next little bit, I can find some desire to start sketching again.  I have a drawing tablet to use with my computer to try and help merge a former passion with my current one, but already I find myself doing quick doodles, but never fully realizing anything.  It is however one of the few resolutions I made to myself this year, was to start drawing again, finding an outlet to be creative and being able to get away from all the hassles and stress of the everyday life.  So hopefully soon, blog entries will be coming in with sketches looking for opinions and critiquing.  Wish me luck!

At the hands of others….


I’ll admit it, I’m a procrastinator.  I can find the most creative and unique methods in which to waste time and avoid being productive.  Strangely enough though, one thing that drives me up the wall, is to have my time wasted by the ignorance and ineffectiveness of others.  Why can it be, that a problem presents itself where the solution is staring at you squarely in the face, yet you’re the only one that can see it and go straight to it?  And why is it, that when this situation presents itself, you are always stuck dealing with people that have to go the “long way” to get to the same destination you saw hours earlier?  Some people and their methods of thinking just surprise me, and equally annoy and amuse me.
