Hey there, I like doing contests too, but most groups want you to be a member. Do you join all of them? I was just curious. Good to see that you're doing lots of jewelry and digital work too. Changing media always helps me a lot with art blocks. And I had many this year.
I don't mind joining groups that are relevant for my art and interests. Why not? It's good for exposure and seeing stuff. Also enough contests are run by individuals. I don't know what art block is. Always so full of ideas i can impersonate a fountain. But i have a lazyness and motivation issue XD
