It's been awhile since I've set time aside for some recreational drawing. I've noticed that when you get busy with non-recreational things (like work and looking for more work) that certain things fall by the wayside. I have a long list of business-related, wouldn't-it-be-nice-if-I-had-time-to-do-this-stuff kind of things that tend to get put on the back burner and stay there for a very long time.
If you go back a few months and read some older blogs, you'll find me talking about things like "down time" and having time to build a library of patterns, textures and art to use in the future (verses scrambling to create something when a new project arises). I'm happy to say that there is less down time and more go time, but, that said, it reminds me that I need to find a balance between work, life, fun and, of course, recreational drawing.
