Been struggling to stay productive while dealing with stress and depression. I’ve had a tough time these past few weeks digging into my art and getting things done. The best way for me to get out of a slump seems to be to just push through and forcing myself to work on art even when I don’t feel like it. Today I inked two pages from my upcoming book, and I’m going to try to stick to a schedule of working on it for one hour every weekday (9am-10am).
For me, and many others, depression feels mostly like a chemical thing… not something you can just shake off. But making art tends to keep me at my happiest, and can often help me deal with the slumps I’m in.
