As hard as it is to let go of the art, (I could tweak things for another 6 months,) I will be glad to send the last one off and take a bit of a breather before I dive into the final art for my next book, Petunia Goes Wild.
I find the best opportunity for creative thinking is when I am not focused on being productive. When my brain is idle ideas tend to pop up. Generally a thing rushes in to fill the nothing.
It makes sense that I should incorporate some brain-meandering time in my daily schedule. Sort of a mental flaneur period.
Yet even though I know it is usually wonderfully productive, who could put "2:00 - 3:30: Nothing." on their calendar?
Seems un-American somehow.
