The thing with depression is that it never really goes away.  It's like a virus - ready to surface when you're already worn down and stressed out. Always in your system, sometimes active, sometimes dormant.  Good days, bad days. 
As artists, depression is a roommate we can never get rid of, but one we do have to learn to live with.
The past year or two have been stressful for me and I've gone through plenty of changes in my life.  That has killed much my inspiration, motivation and creativity.  However, I think that things are starting to bloom again for me.

I've been practicing all forms of positive thought, exercising methods of letting go of negative thoughts and trying to not dwell on the past, and embracing the present and being thankful in it.  Combining those with having gone through a long harsh winter, I think my muse is finally starting to come out of hibernation.  Little by little, I'm sketching again.  Painting pennies and working on other creative projects seem to help breathe fresh new life into my creativity and I feel like I WANT to do more. 

Patience is key, however.  I'm nervous about trying too much too soon and scaring away my shy muse back into hiding and burnout. 

Thankfully there are other alternatives available to me at this point.  I've got a voice studio all set up now for recording relaxation and hypnosis mp3s.  Talking doesn't take too much creative thought - at least not the same type of thinking that visual art uses.
I've also been working in other crafting forms of art lately as well.  Not sure what will come of it all, but it's fun to experiment.

In between projects, I'll be watching things that inspire me.  Agents of SHEILD, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (and reading the comics), and I've gotten the box set of Fraggle Rock.  The theory is - more happiness and inspiration going in, the more happiness and inspiration will come out!

I hope that Spring and new life have come to you all as well.

I like to draw for fun and for some side pocket money. All my art is old-school pen/marker/paper - I'm so not digital-savvy. My favorite subject matter to draw is stuff that is really cute, pretty, colorful or funny... preferably all of those things at once.
