Motivation: for when you are too.. whatever.. to make art

I like sports analogies to describe our struggle against consistently creating art. Some of the greatest struggles can be found pushing yourself out in the sports arena, either against yourself or against a competitor. Maybe that's why we love watching competition so much.

Have I been creating since my last post? Yeah.

But I won't ever let that get me too comfortable. One slip, and I'm back out of the game and on the sidelines questioning what has happened. Where's my mojo?
Do I still have the eye of the tiger? Questioning yourself destroys self confidence leading to more inactivity, spiraling downward to ever increasing bouts of substandard art. See the beginning of the death spiral?

As in sports, practice is everything!

This video can't not get you going! Watch it until the finale.
