Sometimes the best way to get out of a rut is experimentation. My friend and talented person who gives me great advice always, Genevieve Santos, once told me that when she finds that she's created something she likes, she'll try to see what it looks like in different mediums (media? I don't even know anymore).

It certainly works for her! So I'm trying everything all the time right now. I have the time (underemployment FTW!) and I'm expanding my horizons in the hope that one day I'll make that one thing that everybody just has to have.
