IA Makes Non-commital Drawing Plans, #1

I'm tired of getting blog & creativity related palinoia all the time: 

(Palinoia (n.) the obsessive repetition of an act 
until it is perfect or mastered) 

See? Even entering that picture and caption took forever, because I wanted to fiddle with the caption size and all sorts. 

Anyway, my point is I want to make art and my silly little creative things, but I've been going through this art block for something ridiculous like 6+ years now...  I try to force myself out of it, but then because I've been out of practice for so long, what I create is laughable and utterly abysmal. But then I have to try and remember this: 

(I know it's attributed to Ira Glass, but if anyone knows who made the infographic for this quote, I'd be glad to attribute it better)

Which is why I need to just power through until I get better. Creating is no longer giving me the joy it used to, but I know my body needs it. I am lot less focused and a lot more susceptible to depression / negatively cyclical thought patterns when I am not creating. 

So I downloaded an app on my phone. I'm sure you've heard of it before; Draw Something? It's essentially Online /Digital Pictionary. Drawing with my finger on an itty bitty phone screen is a pain, bu 
but I'm getting used to the carpal tunnel lol =/ Even when I would draw on my computer, I preferred the trackpad to an actual mouse, so maybe I'm just more comfortable with my fingers than my whole hand? 

Anyway, because the digital drawings are so non-permenant but focused (I have to draw out a certain word/ phrase), I'm liking it. So I was thinking of posting some of my drawings here to keep myself motivated. Don't worry, I won't be exposing any other people's details (my username is the same as my blog name though, if anyone wants to find / stalk me haha). 

So here's the first drawing :

So... What do you think? I know I need improvement, but I'm slowly getting there. Hopefully you should be able to guess what it is (Scar, duh) but I'm thinking of maybe posting the pictures I draw with the answer (of what they're supposed to be) after the jump. So it's almost like you guys are playing with me, lol =D 

Anyway that's it for now- knowing me I'll probably forget or give up on this idea right after I hit 'post' now lol, but I'm hoping a not too taxing creative idea with no planned posting schedule (consider yourselves warned) should help revive this blog (and my brain) a bit. 

Okay you can stop reading now lol. Until next time, my friends (or whatever spambot is reading this right now) =P 

Take care,
