JoGeeTV ep207 Balto painting by joverine JoGeeTV ep207 Balto painting by joverine
With :icond-gee: in Dallas and my plans to be out of town folding I really didn't feel like drawing, let alone live!

I was ready to laze away my Friday night with Master Chief in some Halo Reach. I was in an art funk!...until an idea struck me.

Why not do the jogeetv show about artblock or art ruts and how to overcome them?
I would be giving a realtime example of how I overcome this problem, one that every artist(and any creative) encounters from time to time!

so...

I got my ass in front of the jogeetv station and got to work :)

Turns out the way I overcame art block this time was with my trusty rusty pal Balto! (and our fellow JoGee's! )

At approx 3:50:54(almost 4hours?!) it was a lengthy episode!
Very surprising when you consider I was solo AND I didn't want to draw in the first place.

Funny how that works huh?...even funnier is that when I tried to go to bed (after I finally joined the Chief for some mayhem) I was way too inspired to sleep!

I had to run down and grab a sketchbook and sketch away-same thing when I woke up this morning! grabbed the sketchbook and started drawing before even getting the sleep outta my eyes!

So there you have it
if you don't feel like drawing-and manage to push through the barrier, you will be rewarded with excessive inspiration and draw like a champ!:D

Thanks to all that showed up!
and to all that gave me feedback as well!
see you all next week when :icond-gee: is back!!!

Check out the episode playback for more tips on overcoming artblock here [link]
and pass it on ;)

Good work, as always Joe! I sorta feel like my bad jokes help you concentrate because it helps if you tune me out! So I take a little credit. 5%?

Very cool homes. Have to agree on the "overcome art block" method. Works wonders, but you managed to make it inspirational :)

"I really didn't feel like drawing, let alone live!" lol I know you meant being 'live' on jogeetv but I'm sure it sounded like something else to someone else. =P

But hey, cool pic bro! Good to see Balto again. =I

I get over my blocks by doing streaming consciousness writing for 3 pages straight with no breaks. Gotta keep on writing even when you don't know wtf else to write. So sometimes you keep it going by writing nonsense which can surprise you with some bits of humour at times. It works for me! Other times it's just a matter of getting back in touch with your initial inspirations. The kind of inspiration that made you want to be an artist in the first place.

Was fun chatting with the bunch of us on there too.

LOL @ let alone live---ooops...yes I can see how that could be misread HAHAHA
so balto saved my life! woot!
guess I owe him :P

I still haven't tried the writing thing, sounds like an interesting way to bust out though
maybe I'll try it

seeya next friday!

Haha yeah, Balto also keeps you busy.

Remind me again if you want the link to that streaming consciousness writing exercise. It's a .pdf file by some other artist. Reading it will enlighten you with what you're supposed to be doing for it.

Was cool watching your process, for some reason I thought it was going to be much more graceful...
Still cool to see, definitely see once you get inept at Photoshop it can be your best friend, It was cool getting to know the Jogee T.V. and deviant followers.

I had the Jogee playing in the background whilst doing some colouring of my own [link] Catch you on the flip syde ;)

it happens to the best of us
all my art colleagues have been through it-the trick is to just push through(although sometimes walkin away for a day helps too)
