Working from home isn’t that unusual for an artist, is it? 

But. Being isolated and forced to stay at home is a brand-new situation for every creator. Shipping companies changing their policy, countries closing their borders, people crazy shopping for pasta, all of that can and will make you feel distracted and confused. The struggle is real. 

It’s important that during your (God knows how long) home office time you stay focused, organized and open-minded. Don’t let that separation from the outside world drag you down.

Treat that strange period as your opportunity to:

- Search for inspirations (everywhere)

- Research global trends and bestsellers

- Read blogs for artists to know what's going on (or start writing one yourself!)
