Just Like Heaven

I'm having one of those "creative emptiness" periods, my inspiration is nowhere to be found. Where did it go? 

This drawing came about when actually having a true and wonderful creative flow about a week or two. I decided I should do a zine. I had amaaaazing thoughts about this but the zine became 3 drawings instead, one of them is this. I was listening to some favorite music, as I always do to keep me going in creative mode. The song Just Like Heaven by the Cure is an old fav and while sketching I used some lyrics for this drawing.
                       

This is the raw sketch from the beginning before editing. 
I know this lack of inspiration probably won't last to long, it usually don't. My life's history has taught me that after a couple of days or weeks it all comes back in thousands of exploding colors with a little help from my friends in music.
Today this helps by the Shout Out Louds

You're so creative 99% of the time I think you maybe just need some time for a little silence and blankness.

It will come back in no time!
(I know - I'm at the same place right now and I'm not as half as creative as you are...)

Have a great Monday! xx

Getting started on a project is always the hardest part for me. The drawings look great though!

Malachi! Thanks!
I would love to do a bigger project like you with your books, that would be the top for me. But I really don't know where to start and I'm so bad at story making...
