Hardworking pictures: Lose your inhibitions

Scriberia hardworking illustration Arden

Have you ever been paralysed by blank page fear? Pen in hand, desperate to make a decisive mark, yet afraid of doing the wrong thing? 

As Sylvia Plath once remarked, 'the worst enemy of creativity is self-doubt'. And, your ambitions need not be as lofty as Sylvia's, for your creative juices to dry up. Everything from pitches to internal policies require a degree of creative thought. 

But self-doubt and inhibition are all that stand between you and your best ideas. So forget the way things are always done, and dare to do things differently. Free yourself from the expectations of others, and see where your pen takes you.
