inspiration vs. knowing where to start.

detail of “big things have small beginnings”, a commissioned painting by karl deuble.

i’ve been having a bit of writer’s block lately.  i’m just not sure what to share.  k said to not over think it, to just write about what’s going on.  seems simple, right?  but every time i start, i get a few sentences in and then i just get discouraged and stop.  i over think and over analyze everything (maybe that’s why i’ve always been drawn to studying the mind and psychology), which just makes me go mad and stops my productivity dead in my tracks.  k has learned, and has taught me, that you just have to keep pushing through.  when he feels stuck in a painting or a drawing, he just keeps on working on it until he’s happy with it.

which leads me to bobbi marbles.  k and i have so much inspiration right now, but we are having trouble figuring out where to start.  we’ve seen some amazing art, music, movies, and people lately, so it’s definitely all seeping into ideas as to what to do with bobbi marbles designs.  and while it is good that we have a lot of ideas, as opposed to being totally uninspired, without a clear plan on where to start, we’re working on getting unstuck.

the good news is that we have a potential deadline for a lot of new product!  we’ve applied to have a table at the Albuquerque Comic Expo’s Artist’s Alley, and we’re totally excited.  we can’t confirm if we will be selling there yet, but as of now we’re planning for have a lot of new product by mid-june (and preferably sooner).  k has been keeping busy with a lot of freelance work, including a large painting.  he titled it “big things have small beginnings” (shout out to prometheus, anyone?) and i thought that was a perfect concept behind bobbi marbles’ goals for this year.

we have a lot in store for you all.  promise.
