Calendar Crab / Artwork by Jason A. Muckley © 2020

Why does it seem like my favorite artwork comes from a doodle on my desktop calendar?

I doodled this on my monthly calendar that gets thrown out at the end of the month. Once it finds its way into the trash I never see it again.

Purposefully trying to duplicate it or reproduce it somewhere else never “works” the same. When I set out to intentionally “create” something, it brings out all these performance expectations on myself.

Even opening a sketch pad with the expressed intention to draw seems to derail me.

What is wrong with me?

Do you all ever struggle with similar feelings? How do you “breakthrough”?
