Hi, Im Kim, and im always looking for something new to work on n_n
I have a ton of experience with customers and freelance arting, and Ive even done some work in the industry here and there. Im an illustrator with a VFX degree, and ten years of bartending experience. That about sums up my work ethic and personality in a nut shell, all those things you envision about adding these three things together, its totally true.
Some stuff about me:
I like science, reptiles, history and space, i love reading text books and learning about this very cool world we live in. I think barbarians and elves are pretty cool, and I spend a lot of time painting stuff, roleplaying and playing games. Im a a bit more active on my tumblr then I am here, but I check by here daily to see whats going on!

Interests

Things to do to get rid of it:

- Make textures/ patterns. 

- Make random, look for incidental shapes and pictures in random blobs or texture/ scribbles. 

- Make a list of ideas with rough stick sketches/ thumbnails, revisit the next day and refine/rework

- Make a list/ rough sketches/thumbnails of things to make for others.

- Practice symmetry/ asymmetry

- Try a different craft/ medium/ content. Even if it turns out poorly, you dont have to show anyone. 

- Study textures and light from life (any medium)

- Browse sites like SaatchiConceptart or layerpaint

- Watch people paint on youtubes, especially stuff you dont normally paint. 

- Watch/ read/ learn about art as a process, 

 - Do some process pieces (where there is no defined outcome and the art is made via feel, and without intentions), come up with the concept as you work, not before. 

- Relax. Dont get stressed over some blank canvas, that makes it worse! Instead, fill your time with research and practice. Remember that not everything you make has to be some masterpiece that you are required to post.  

 
Please feel free to add your own ideas for beating the block! <3
