Swept Away, Daily Ink XX by DjamilaKnopf Swept Away, Daily Ink XX by DjamilaKnopf
This is drawing number 20 and it concludes the series so far. I'll be taking a one-month break from work now and I'm so looking forward to that! For 1 1/2 years I've been working at least 10 hours per day (including Sundays) and mostly 14 hours throughout January. I truly love making art, but man... Spelling that out is kind of insane, so please don't follow my lead.

But after the break, I'm going to continue where I left off. I'm going to get started on my tarot deck, make more ink drawings, release print sets and eventually put them together in a book. It's going to be great!!
Thank you all so much for the positive feedback on those drawings. They're probably the most personal pieces I've made so far and I'm glad they've been well received.

Schönen Urlaub! Ist auf jeden Fall wichtig sich mal eine Auszeit zu gönnen, danach ist der Spaß auch meist wieder größer^^
Dass du trotz Stress so tolle Artworks hinbekommst, Respekt!

It's nice to hear that you're getting some rest.
I hope you give yourself more time off in the future. One break every one and a half years doesn't sound too healthy!

Also, your art is lovely as always =p

Thank you! Actually it was kind of meditative. But the fact that it takes me hours and hours to finish a drawing is exhausting, yes. ^^

I'm still amazed by reading you work that many hours on average. Even that on it's own is an impressive feat... kudos!

Wow! Sieht klasse aus und den Urlaub hast du dir auf jeden Fall verdient!
Kann mir vorstellen wie anstrengend das ist. Momentan bin ich zwar noch unbezahlt, aber auch so fleißig wie nur sein kann dran :D Zeichnungen, Bilder Youtube Videos. Viele wissen gar nicht wie lange das dauert

Good work! really, enjoy a good break.
You're one of my very favorite artist on DA and i really enjoy seeing what you do, but you have to pay attention not to force too much on your hand and wrist, so you will be able to keep making awesome art. so take some time to rest. i'll wait patiently too see what you'll do when you come back. :huggle:

Thank you so much. :]
It is so important to give yourself breaks and I definitely don't do that enough. Luckily, my writst are perfectly fine. I go climbing once a week so they're freakishly strong. Back pain is the thing I've been dealing with the most, but my standing desk fixed that as well. So I'll be able to work for many more years. :D
