I've had a bad cold this week and have been setting personal records for sleep during the day. Not getting to my art or blog though.
Here's something that might be of interest; when I'm feeling a bit stuck I sometimes just draw shapes to break the ice. Noodles, tubes, spheres, cubes etc. This can be a helpful way to get your drawing going without potential "failure" being a factor.  Feb.18  2009  SF
