addem asked: How long do you usually schedule in to create a piece a day?

I typically spend about an hour a day. If I have a lazy day with nothing going on I can accomplish a more polished/detailed piece. Time can really get away from me when I’m having that much fun :)

As you can see, I am currently failing miserably at creating a piece every day. As much as I want to make this a daily ritual, in order to push myself creatively, life often gets in the way. We start new jobs, venture into new relationships, trudge through necessary obligations, juggle stressful emergencies, mourn tragedies, and celebrate joyous occasions. Most importantly we simply spend time with our families and friends. All of these things, believe it or not, are essential to stay creative. Our lives build a bank of experiences to draw from and drive us to tell stories and create.
