Head meet brick wall.

I hit a creative brick wall. Zombie flu sucked everything out of me in August and it hasn’t come back.

I’ve tried ignoring anything art related, forced out commissions, started Daily Doodle to make something – anything – happen, spent 4 days alone somewhat removed from reality and it’s still not back.

So now what?

This is the longest I’ve gone without doing anything significant since the start of the year. It’s disturbing and yet before this year I’d go 6 months… a year… without picking up a pencil. So what changed? Oh yeah, I woke up to the fact that I was walking around as a brain dead zombie. Went for years in that state and now I can’t go two months….

It’s now two days later and I’ve fixed it, I think. It only took a 790km mission to Nelson to see the Oi You street art exhibition. It’s not the first time I’ve driven 800k for art and it won’t be the last. Hell if I had the coin I’d be chasing it all over the world.


Why not.
