I started drawing character designs for a small animation studio in San Diego, California, when I was still in High School in Los Angeles. I used to drive 136 miles, each way, on the weekends, when I was 16, just for the opportunity to get paid to draw. Cartooning was a magical experience to me.

But if you want to make progress in what you're writing, you know that the frustration of being "stuck" will prevent you from enjoying much else. Instead of giving up, start writing something else - something totally different. It can be a few paragraphs in your diary, or doing drawings for no reason at all. Then come back to your work, and you'll be refreshed and ready to go. This approach gives you a break from your work, but also keeps you in your creative mode. Try it and see how it works for you.(less)

Ever wonder how you'll ever get better at art when you have so little time? You don't want to make it a chore by simply "deciding" to draw for an hour a day no matter what.

The good thing is that you don't have to. Not all drawing should be done as drawing exercises. Some of your time drawing should be for fun - to explore new ideas without always judging yourself. This is type of freestyle dra... Read more of this blog post »
