I really did not mean to keep taking so long between pages. I think now that I have been away from Boston for so long and not doing street art, it’s making me lazy. When I first moved up here, but I was still going into the city regularly to sell my street art, I still had that inspiration and a reason to be artistically productive. Now that they’ve torn up my spot where I used to sell art and I can’t use it anymore, I’ve kind of lost my sense of direction.
I also just never got back to my old mentality of staying organized and trying to get the most out of every hour of the day like I did when I worked at Aetna — and it’s hard to hold down a job and still be artistically productive when you aren’t in that organized mindset. I don’t really want to get back into that mode of pushing myself, though. It was stressful. Even with all the aches and pains from doing physical work, I still feel physically better now than I did when I was working at Aetna, just because I am not as stressed out and sleep-deprived. The only problem is that now it takes me forever to get anything done. Drawing new pages of Misguided Light is not the only thing I have been procrastinating on.
