Mark’s looking like Maes Hughes more and more each day
The resemblance is uncanny
at least out loud i wont say im in love
I’m in this weird spot right now with art, where instead of feeling motivated by all the really cool typography and character illustration I love, I’m kinda… looking at it, and sighing, and wondering what the point of producing my stuff is when there’s all this great stuff out there already.
And like, objectively I know that’s stupid, because there’s always gonna be something out there that I think is better than what I’m making, and people are just gonna keep making stuff. But I’ve been struggling with a sort of stagnant moodset where i’m having trouble feeling original or particularly creative.
I get home from work and sit down at my PC and I kind of just… space out. I feel like I’m running on empty all the time, and I’m not sure what kind of fuel I need to restart my engines. There’s a lot going on in my personal life right now, I guess—I’m really broke, living paycheck to paycheck and struggling to buy myself groceries and pay my phone bill, I’ve had a rocky relationship status experience recently, and I’m just… tired. I feel tired all the time and I wanna sleep.
I want to get back to feeling productive and creative and motivated… I dunno, maybe it’s the weather. Maybe it’s that I spend all my time isolated in my room because my PC is up here and I have to keep the door shut so the house cat doesn’t try to eat my bird. I can’t really afford to go out anymore… feel like I’m waiting for the rest of my life to start.
Keep on telling myself next year will be better, but I always end up telling myself that around September.
