As a recent college graduate and a professional artist I have picked up many techniques that anyone can do to get themselves out of the block! Here's a list I've compiled from my own personal experiences:
Regardless of how you kick yourself back into go always remember that a lack of inspiration is NEVER an excuse to delay or stop working for a client or a professor… or even a family member. Professionalism comes with a price, it means art is your business and you've eliminated the luxury of whimsical happenings. That being said, it shouldn't be thought of as stifling and the more you practice the easier it gets to become more efficient!
Well now you've got the juices flowing and you're ready to go! So get off of this blog and start arting again! It's not going to finish itself!
