I think I should explain why I chose to name this section of my website artist's block. Besides the similar sound to blog (which is perhaps a bit softer in pronunciation), In German, as in English, there are quite a lot of meanings (often as part of a compound word). There are two versions that may be of relevance here: the writing or sketch pad, which is der Schreiblock, oder der Skizzenblock for one's flow of thoughts and ideas. But in case things are not going so well, one speaks of the creative block - der kreativen Blockade.
Watch out for my first discussion of one artwork of mine soon in this section.
