In creative exile

For personal reasons, I’ve been on leave from all my work for a month. Without client work to fill up my days, I’ve been using the time to organize my closet and studio, to read books, and to do things I never had the time for, like my personal art. I’ve been so busy on work projects and hitting deadlines (sometimes working on three at a time) that I’ve neglected simply playing around and doing art for art’s sake, like I used to do.

So in the month I’ve been off work, I’ve done the following:

Made shrink plastic art:

Worked on my travel journal:

Painted:

I’ve been enjoying my leave doing random art stuff. And look, I even set aside time to write in this neglected blog. I hope to make writing in this blog more of a habit.
