Apparently I've never written a journal entry before, odd.

Anyway, I'm really stuck for inspiration and have been for the last few months. I've tried everything. I've used my Bamboo tablet, my pens, pencils, paints, even tried doing a bit of modelling (which I haven't done in years) but no matter what I try everything is like smashing my face into a wall. I've googled the issue and watched advise videos on YouTube and they have some good ideas. The main one being to look at other peoples work which could be similar to your own (to inspire you, I guess). In theory this sounds sensible but my brain being the way it is I find myself looking at this work and just becoming jealous and disheartened because I know there is no way I could come close to the quality and imaginativeness that some of the people in this community have.

Maybe I should just take up golf?

It's not just a "block" any more, I don't know what to call it. It's all starting to make me pretty depressed and I'm not sure how I can get out of it.

It sucks, trying to draw now and failing but I'll need to start posting my old stuff soon as well. Nice tablet work by the way.
