Having a bit of an illustration-block right now, meh. I'm currently doing my 6 week book project and i feel somewhat lost. Second week is nearly over and i haven't even finished in-depth research let alone starting the book.
I'm basing my project around areas of experience in my eighteen years alive and plan to illustrate these experiences.
The problem is i don't know how. 
Perhaps I'm thinking too hard, but looking at Illustration greats like Ashley G and Drew and Lizzy Stewart is just making me feel that what I'm doing is all wrong. Their styles are beautiful, simple yet comprehensive.
I'm totally unsure of how to express my style into a working image.
Freaking out also that I'm not going to get the book done in time.
Unsure of whether posting my worries will help any, I'm hoping it will. 
Perhaps a good nights sleep will help me get my head around this all.

  1. Don't panic! And don't worry about what other people are doing! Looking at other people's work is no help if you just feel crap instead of inspired. Be yourself, bla bla bla. That's my wisdom for the day!

  2. Thank you so much for your great wisdom, oh Super Duper one! I think looking at other people when i'm in such a awful mindset definately isn't the best idea, in future, i'll avoid this!
