— When was the last time you tried drawing with crayons? Or markers? Maybe even try picking up a coloring book — not one of those intimidatingly beautiful adult coloring books, but a kids coloring book. Simply holding these materials again should spark something inside of you. There’s no pressure to make something incredible when you’re using such playful materials. It also serves as a reminder that art is allowed to be fun if you want it to be. I know how easy it is to get stuck in your head with a million and one thoughts about what your art is doing and what it all means, but those thoughts so easily hinder production. It’s important to allow yourself to enjoy creating.
