You’re probably a busy person. You have external commitments, whether it’s family, work or school. Art has always been your safe haven, but then you realise that you simply don’t have the time for it like how you used to…
Truth is, you actually do.
Everyone has 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. It’s all about how you split your time.

Art in itself, has always been a very subjective topic. There’s many different styles and kinds of art – traditional, digital, expressionism, impressionism, modern, abstract… to name a few. While art is very flexible, when do you really label yourself as an artist?
It’s currently 12:30am as I’m writing this and waiting for a video to export. I’ve always considered myself more of a night owl than anything.
Anyway, recently I’ve felt my mind become free. For the longest time, I felt that life was linear. I felt that there was a certain kind of mould to fit into.
