Summer Art Challenge Days 23-29 — making art (of some kind) every day!
The impulse to create is a funny thing. It doesn’t confine itself to neat boundaries of expression. A great many creative people have more than one muse, and sometimes there can be conflicts.
I’ve found myself in a period of doing a lot of music, after an intense two years focusing on visual art and storytelling. My two bands are in the midst of a run of summer gigs, and one of them is preparing to record again; that means extra practices, and extra travelling, and extra time spent performing. Which is why this little one-page comic took me six days to do (on day 24 I made the character sketch for Melody). But a little bit each day got me there!
I’ve always found this a hard balance to keep. I don’t know what I’d do without my muses; between them they keep me sane. But sometimes they drive me crazy, too. I really hope they can work this out.
