Returning from world travel has given me a greater sense of motivation in pursuing a career in drawing. I hope to commit more of my time to my sketch books and less time on menial money making jobs that absorb most of my time and leave me physically and mentally drained with no wish to pick up a pencil.
I have grand plans but I still have to remain realisitic, i.e. I still have to get a job. But the balance of work vs art will definitely shift.
If travel gives you one thing it is reflection. I hope my motivation doesn't wane in the return to routine and normal everyday life.
