Struggling with creativity

12:37 AM

I'm working on some milestone cards right now. Getting back to illustrating has been difficult.
I used to hand draw everything, scan it, and then go over it with so many changes in illustrator. Looking back at some of my before work, I don't know how I actually drew it, or even thoguht of the idea.
It feels like my head is blank. No ideas. No inspiration.

Now work

I'm really struggling, and it feels horrible. I signed up to some online doodling/sketchbook courses, but I feel like I'm not actually getting anywhere. The pen and pad used to be my favorite tool and I filled my sketchbook up within a week, now I have the same pad for... It's embarrassing to say how long.

Then work

I can't remember what the trick, or secret is. I feel like I'm missing out on something.
I try to go through pinterest and save some of my favorite pictures, trying to figure out why I like it so much, what inspires me, the colors, but I truly feel like I'm at a dead end.

I'm going to try a weekly drawing challenge, hopefully that can help me actually sit and draw/sketch/doodle.
Hopefully that will help bring back my creativity and confidence in what I do.
This feeling really stinks :-/
