Hey guys, the UK is experiencing stunning weather right now and all I can hear is kids playing and birds chirping. Aside from the beautiful things the weather brings though I've had a pretty crappy few days. These 10 mins sketches are the only creative things I've had the willpower to do:
In the usual way of crappy days they were naturally followed by crappy nights, but as I lay awake browsing on my iphone I came across this artist & this video (watch it I guarantee it will inspire you):
Although not exactly what the video is about it gave me a groggy 4am realisation that no matter how crappy things might be we are so lucky that we still have a creative instinct within us, some place the rest of the world cannot get in. Today I still felt like I didn't want to create for more than a few minutes, but what I was grateful for was the fact I had the drive to do it in the first place:
And I actually liked the result! Not only that but it gave me a new technique that I want to develop in the future (& perhaps even a subliminal message of reasons for happiness?!).
I know I don't often do the 'spiritual-arty-farty-love' thing but today I am, because art reminded me (once again) to have faith in it & in our creative instinct. Because no matter what, our creative instinct has places to take us...even when we are unwilling to go and the poor thing has to drag us there kicking and screaming!!!
Much love to you guys & your own (hopefully better treated than mine) creative instincts lol xxx
