Hi guys, gonna make this as quick as possible. Sine yesterday I’m home from work. My right eye is totally fucked up right now, and after Monday’s visit to the doctor he told me I need to rest my eyes from reading text on a screen. So I limited my computer use to 1 hour/day until this problem is fixed. Short story: the muscles making sure my right eye is able to focus on stuf are failing. Got new glasses this winter, but for some reason the glasses are not helping anymore and I get a really nasty headache and dizziness after just a few minutes reading text or focusing on small details. Time to stop writing, time is ticking away. This batch of stuff marks 6 months since I started my “Learning To Draw”-project, and my 20th posts about this small adventure. Cake for me, drawings for you:
So I guess I can’t really draw anything digitally on my computer before I eliminate this eye-problem. Until that I’m gonna see if it’s even possible to draw the old school way, or if that will bring back the headache and pains. I’m sure it will all be OK, just gotta wait for that next visit to the doctor. I was reading my friend Karrey’s blog the other week, and found this: “Doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you don’t stop” it was much easier for me to stay peaceful in difficult times of creating and lack of free time to draw. I figured it’s important to learn to stay proud about my progress no matter how slow I am some days or if something turns out like shit constantly for weeks. It’s crucial to fail to succeed!”
This really got to me. I might need to take a brake from the stuff I love, drawing and work, but as long as I just don’t lie down on the bed and feel sorry for myself I think I will manage to bounce back.
