"When it rains, it pours." - I was internally suffering for a while creatively, and that was also compounded by the fact that freelance work mostly dried up as well. I can't blame potential clients - a pandemic is a scary time to think about paying for a logo or web work. Just like it was a weird time for me to think about drawing comics or writing. But amidst chaos there is some opportunity. I've been writing more about Diversity, Inclusion, Equality and Equity specifically in the Equestrian space on various platforms. Writing opportunities have opened up, I've also been thinking of some more short form comics. With infection cases rising again and things beginning to shutdown, again - there will be more time to mentally pursue creative work now that I have ideas without a feeling like I have to go out and interact with others because things are open. Balancing is tough but I need to continue to push through.
In these crazy times it is hard for me to wrap my mind around doing my own creative work. I know it will come in time but that also I should be doing small things everyday to improve. I have done some painting but not on canvas - just at the barn I keep my horse at. It was a fun activity and I think it reminded me that I can still think creatively even if its not drawing or inking.
