What is the point?

Day 56 and I woke up today just feeling a bit let down and a little hopeless.

I just don't know what the point of it all is.  I don't know if I can be bothered to believe in anything anymore. Would anyone notice if I just dropped everything?  Disappeared?  Or would I only be noticed because am not there to be used anymore?

Drawing done in less than 5 minutes.  Straight copic fineliners and straight into Photoshop for texturing.


  1. Ahhh Marta! :(
    Sorry to hear your feeling down. Unfortunately we all have days like this..... But of course you need to get on going! Your animations and funny illustrations definitely brighten up my day, so keep it up and it'll pay off!

    Sometimes you just end up having a few losses before you get any wins.
    Cheer up missy and go find something fun to do on your Saturday afternoon :) :) :)

  2. Well, I would miss you, so don't disappear on us, ok? :)
    Feeling like this is very common after completing a lot of work successfully, like you did recently, so don't worry, this feeling will go away. There is something that can really help you get over this feeling much quicker though and that is to put everything down, forget about all the work and just go off and have some fun, it really helps, trust me :)

  3. Sweet Marta...I don't know why, but it seems that the slumpys quite often attach themselves to bouts of creative genius...which you my dear have been putting forth in spades! Hang in there...and know that you and your work are a gift that brings delight and joy to many...myself included! Brilliance and doubt go together...sad but true...hey, maybe you could draw artistic brilliance kicking doubts you know what, because yes, your talents definitely fall into the brilliant catagory! :)
    Big hugs...♥

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Burning


This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash.

I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.
