Hey! thanks for the question. I'm still here. I'm in the process of remodeling a condo that is about 2 hours away so I've been super busy. Almost done though! : )

ARTWORK NEEDED FOR SCBWI SUMMER CONFERENCE!
hey everyone, continuing with our "critique" series, I would love some images to use in my lecture for the scbwi summer conference. The topic is how to design to enhance storytelling and I need lots of example of both good work and also work that could be improved.
So anything you want to put in this thread would be much appreciated! : )
RE: I can’t draw anymore! I’m frustrated and lost.
@Ari-Sorokin I hate to hear that you are struggling with your art, BUT I have a bit of a different take here. From your post, it sounds just like you have moved into some different things for now:
"I am currently more focused on writing my science fiction stories and self improvement through meditation, journaling, and yoga."
There is absolutely nothing wrong with leaving art behind and moving into other creative things. We will always be changing, the big thing is making sure that change is positive. And it sounds like yours is! Art isn't the only way to be creative and some things aren't meant for forever. It's totally ok to give yourself the freedom to explore these other things without the guilt of "I should be drawing all the time".
Maybe you will come back to art and maybe you wont. Either of those things is ok. I'd recommend NOT trying to come back to art. I'd recommend trying to get rid of the guilt associated with not drawing right now. You can come back any time you like! I would suggest diving all the way into writing and meditation, and yoga, etc. Our lives are best when you are really focused on the thing you are doing. Don't take away from the things you want to do now by trying to focus on something that you used to do. : )
A creative life is our goal and there are many ways to get there! : )
RE: Power Portfolio Critiique: my experience
@Katherine I just added some new slots for the next few weeks! Here's a direct link.
I'm only doing 1 per week, so they fill up rather fast. There are a few open times to pick from. Hope to see you in there! : )
