The Healing Process...

In case you didn't notice, artwork from yours truly has been incredibly scarce. I mean, you should have noticed or there's something wrong with you. Obviouusly, there was something wrong with me because, for the longest time, I've been in a slump. I believe this goes beyond your common "artist block." In fact, Artist Block seems cute by comparison. Last year, I didn't want to say "depression" even though a handful of the symptoms were present. I already have a laundry list of problems and I didn't want another label. Besides, the D-Word would require medication and who the fuck wants to go through that circus?

What the hell do you call it, then?

It doesn't matter. For all intents and purposes, I'm on the road to recovery. Hell, I can literally feel the monkey's grip loosening. There's more sketching and, rather than piling up inside my head, ideas are being applied to paper. The pencil is moving again, a sensation I took for granted last year. It feels pretty good. Shit, I'll admit.

In the interest of keeping the wheel turning, I'll be using this blog (in conjunction with social media sites) to produce more content---more drawings---more art. It's good old fashion momentum-building because the stagnant life is rather dull; believe me, I know. Stagnant is missing opportunities, burning bridges, and being left behind by folks that used to give a damn.

Why Blogger? There's a long story, but the gist is that my beloved Xanga turned into a shit storm. I stuck around long enough to crawl out of the wreckage. It turns out they wanted me to pay $50 to stick around. The place is a ghost town, despite migrating to Word Press. I already have a site hosted by WP and Blogger is fuckin' free. That's the most important thing here: FREE... and accessible to the public. I can go on and on about how Xanga fumbled and took a steaming shit on their faithful bloggers---essentially becoming whores, but that would require more paragraphs.

Anyway, expect some uploads very soon.
