And a Happy New Year!
I’ve been wanting to start a new blog for a very long time, and finally, here we are. 🙂
I had a blog back in ~2010-2012 or so. It was a mixture of exactly everything I could think of, even if it started out with the vague intention of being an art blog. I deleted the blog entirely during a depression, because I needed a fresh start. I’ve had a lot of fresh starts since then, both when it comes to my art and my personal life.
This time around, I want to focus more on art related stuff together with time management and mental health as an artist. I don’t want to paint myself into a corner, of course, but will follow my instincts if the blog needs to evolve.
This blog will be a complement to my social media accounts and my YouTube channel. In the latter, I sometimes do voice-overs, but I don’t exactly feel comfortable talking into a microphone. Writing suits me so much better, and I myself really like watching time-lapses with music as well as voice-overs.
Shall we begin with a little tour of some of my paintings and drawings from the last decade? The production rate and quality during these years have been very uneven, since I’ve had a lot of affective episodes due to schizoaffective disorder. 2019 has been a very good year though, apart from personal loss. I have never been stable for such a long time, and now that I’ve had the same medication for a couple of years, I feel confident that 2020 will be the same. 🙂
Even though 2019 has not been my most productive year, I think I’ve leveled up quite a bit in comparison to earlier years. And to be honest, my most productive years have been when I’ve had manic episodes, and at those times I mostly produce things to hasty for it to be any good.
Starting a new year, and a new decade, is exciting. I have plans and dreams that I hope will be fulfilled, and I will work really hard to get there.
I wish you all an amazing start on the new year!
