    Writer's Block...

    Hey guys, long time since I've been here... anyway.. thought I might be able to get some help..

    Over the months, I've developed a form of 'writer's block' for artistry. Whenever I pick up a pen or a pencil, I can't picture... or imagine.. or think of anything to draw. So I just make faces out of circles... but I do still keep up on the sketching of graffiti... but I ONLY seem to draw the letter 'S'... everytime I pick up a pencil or what have you... it's like this...
    Just wondering if either
    A: Anyone has gone through this...
    B: What I can do to fix it..

    Now I saw the thread on 'if you need motivation (or whatever it said' with all the sick shit in it... didn't really help.. just pissed me off that I can't draw like that anymore. ...

    there's alot of things you can do to overcome this and some things work better than others but these are just suggestions of what gets me by,
    1. Take a walk, stroll, drive, and look at things experience your city and gain inspiration for what it has to offer
    2. Sketch through it. its hard at first but put time into a work and push yourself through it. By the time your finished it'll be 3 in the morning but your head will be swarming with ideas
    3. Draw in a friends blackbook some people produce better artwork if its for someone, the need to do good and impress others with your artwork
    4. Do what your willing to do. not everyday are you going to be ready and willing to do a two page wildstyle burner. do simple shit if your feeling lazy but always keep yourself drawing
    5. Don't let anything block your creativity, get wild, its just a drawing it doesn't mean it has to be shown to the world so try weird shit you wouldn't normally do

    thats all i got for now ill write more if i think of anymore tips

    if i get a writers block. i put down the bong and grab the 40. usually works.

    keep sketchin. thats the only way to get outta it. if you cant come up with new ideas, just sketch old shit and be consistant.

    Writers block can be cured by getting off your ass and getting out there
