General Ramblings on Artist's Block and Ideas

Recently I did a sponsored video with Gumtree, scroll down a little bit and you'll see it. It was a lot of fun to make, and I was honoured that they found little old me floating around the inter webs and decided they wanted to collaborate. Working on the video and sorting out all the niggly behind the scenes bits pretty much consumed me and now that I'm sitting back at my desk, without the video to work on, I'm lost. 

It's the darn curse of artist's block, and it's making me want to tear my hair out. Any idea that finds its way into my head is soon pushed out with negativity like 'it's not good enough' or 'I can't draw that' and it's driving me up the wall. If I could give myself a literal kick up the butt I would, but unfortunately my legs don't bend that way. So instead a good ranting blog post will have to suffice. I have my fingers and toes crossed that something will inspire me and give me that push to get the pencil and paper out soon. 

As we're on the topic of ideas, I've had others too, not necessarily art related but creative all the same. Seeing as I've been working on my Youtube channel lately I've seen the subscriber counter grow and I've come to realise that I really don't use it enough. I've posted a variety of different videos on there but there's no real fluidity to the channel. So, with this in mind, I'm tempted to put a little more time and effort into moulding it into what I dreamt it would be. Somewhat like an online journal with creativeness cwtched in here and there. Just something a little more me, instead of being that annoying voice behind the camera teaching you how to do something all the time. It'll take a while to get into the swing of it, but I definitely think it's something I want to develop and explore. 

Right, although I could keep writing about my frustrations and ideas I think I've ranted enough. Hopefully the next post will be something I little more exciting than me rambling on.
