Hello World. Long time, no see!

Hello World!

Hello and Happy 2015!
(...I think I missed the "Happy New Year" window. Oops!)

It has been a long time between posts, my friends, and for that I apologise. Does anyone else feel like the past 4 months have flown by in an instant? I had to flip through my diary to figure out where on Earth it went.

Turns out I've been busy. Ha! Lame excuse, I know.

I've had all the best intentions to post, but work and family commitments meant I had to shelve blogging for a while. My little sister got married and I had a bunch of awesome projects to work on, including designing stationery for the wedding and a co-hosting gig with Pencil Kings on their Perspective Drawing Challenge and Figure Drawing Challenge. It has been a busy time, but an exciting one too!

Then art anxiety decided to come and bite me on the butt. Because it's cool like that.

I won't delve into the intricacies of it today, but let's just say it really blew the wind out of my sails. Anxiety is terribly exhausting, and as a result I've had to save my energy for client work and making a recovery. It's left very little time to pursue my own projects, including this blog.

The good news is, it's helped me see that I need to scale back. Simplify. Be selective about what I really want and need to do.

With small baby steps, I will work towards a return in regular blogging, studies and creating art again. It will require a good deal of patience and persistence, but I look to the road ahead with great optimism. I've got this.

Thank you for your kind support along the way. :-)

Until next time,
x Kristy Kate
