I think this is first time in a long while I've made two journals in a calendar year (that could be a lie). In any case I'm glad to be back on the wagon, sort of. 
I finally made that art dump but there is much more I could give. I found a great group on Facebook that has really got me back into the artistic spirit, The daily spitpaint, check it out:www.facebook.com/groups/140256…  
It presents a great challenge that has really pushed me to some great results and the most outcomes I've ever had in such a short space of time. 
Up till now I've had a huge crisis of conscience, I bombed my second year of uni because of it and stopped believing in my own abilities in the face the many great artists I count as peers and friends on my course. 
I just felt like, no matter how well I did on my course, I wouldn't be able compete with them or anyone out in the big bad world. 
But now, I've found some confidence, i only in recognising my shortcomings and recognising how to fix it. 

If I can advise one thing. TAKE INSPIRATION, indulge yourself in all the things that inspire you, bring you joy, then take those images do something without not matter how good or bad you think you are. You might just discover, you're better than you think you are. 

EVEN YOUR IMAGINATION NEEDS FUEL. 

For me this was rediscovering my love of Anime, with shows such as Attack on Titan, Paranoia Agent and films Summer Wars & Paprika. I started sketching again and enjoying being immersed in fantasy. I got back some awe, wonder and no small part of geekyness. 

Think about it, its called TAKING inspiration. Don't be afraid reference, borrow, pastiche and steal (elements only of course). 

Its how the greats do it. 

Peace.
