When this month started, I had said that I was going to take a break from designing for the rest of the month in order to rest and recharge my mind. That was 23 days and 70 designs ago. Even when I want to take a break my mind won’t let me. Some would see that as possibly borderline nuts. But to me it is perfectly normal. Being the 4th generation in my family to feel compelled to do artwork, and it is a compulsion, I long since realized that being creative is not something you can turn on or off. I is a part of you, and can become a driving force in ones life. I fought it when I was young and it made me unhappy as hell. But the night John Lennon died I surrendered myself to my creative muse and she hasn’t stopped talking since and I hope she never doe’s.
