I have pointed out before that there are simply times that any artist is not in the mood to make art. Please don't get me wrong: I love art-making and I absolutely do not take for granted that I can do what I can do. But tonight was one of those nights where I really had no inspiration or desire to sit down and do my self-portrait. In other words, tonight was one of those nights that people ask me about: "Don't ya ever just dread having to do another drawing?"
At the end of this project, I will know that for every single day in a year's time, I made some type of art. No breaks. No skipping a day here and there.
I like that a lot. And it's pretty motivating on days where there is no other form of motivation to make some art...
