Interests
It should have been obvious that my rate of submissions into dA has been as pathetic as that of a snail's pace.

Work and school eats up so much time!!!

Yet ......

Over the years, I have noticed that the worst thing an artist can do is to stop doing art. This is an invitation for the artist's block. Even if there is not much free time available, use that window of time to squeeze in some artistic activity, which I have been doing. This also applies to musicians and writers.

Meanwhile ...

Should I switch to a drawing technique that would allow me to increase the rate of production? I think not. I favor quality over quantity. Granted, I can pretty much pace myself at will, because my art has been independent from my source of income.

I think ...

If inadequate amount of free time available for artistic pursuits is the reality, then the choice of tools and methods becomes vital. For example, I have been concentrating on 'Nurse Molly' comics, because the ensemble of fountain pen, mechanical pencil, and decent notebook has been the most 'natural' method for me throughout so many years. After all, art ought to be an extension of oneself.
