Monster Face 17



I am really wishing for some time to sit down and do some proper illustrations just for myself and not just for work or exhibitions.  I just want to draw a couple of whimsical drawings in my head but I haven't had the time to sit down and do it lately.  When I have free time, it's been going to house chores, drawing properly for freelance and exhibiting pieces, and seeing my partner and friends.  There's really not a whole lot of time at the moment.  I just want to sit down for hours working on one nice piece just for me.  Sadly, this won't be the case over the next few months.  I've only had time to draw in-between scenes at work and then relaxing before bed by colouring up what I draw.  I suppose, I need to make more of an effort to bring proper sketchbooks to work and draw on my lunch break.  This may happen yet.

I enjoy the monsters and doodling on my notebook because I find it relaxing and I like not being too precious but then I see some fabulous works by people I follow on blogger and on Facebook and I am inspired, intimidated and frustrated by it all simultaneously.  Inspired, because I do want to make amazing pieces, intimidated because am not sure if I can ever reach that level and frustrated by my lack of time.  I have a lot of projects on my plate, both professional and personal.  I know I am doing a lot and I always take more.  I suppose my downfall is finding that balance.  Or needing sleep.  If I could lose sleep, I probably would.....
