I have had a tough few months. To be honest I’m not yet through it. The pressure of trying to draw daily was starting to add to my anxiety so I decided to have a break.
I have been wanting to take Fred to the next level recently. I have been doing ‘Inside My Fred’ for ten years this year and I really want him to progress technically. Forcing a drawing-a-day out of me isn’t helping me get the results and standards I am aiming for, so that is now on hold.
Instead I am drawing only when I have a solid idea in my head and I take a few days to actually get the drawing the way I want it before sharing it (if I decide to share it at all).
Social media, for me, has lost its way and is unhealthy platform to release work you produce in a serious way. So, again, I am trying to prioritise fine-tuning projects and sharing them here first.
It’s been a while since I had time to actually sit down and scan/edit a cartoon of mine and then upload it to my website.
Life has been very busy since November last year. I am planning on updating InsideMyFred far more regularly from now on…
