These things are cyclical ... when I get interested in any given thing, it tends to take over my brain for a while, blocking out most other things. Right now my mind is on gaming, writing, and fantasy ... I'm only peripherally aware of comics or artwork at all, even of artists whose work I love normally. At some point, the switch will flip and I'll be all over it again, but in the meantime, I've got to do it the hard way -- which is to just keep plugging even if my heart isn't really in it. Anybody who's serious about their craft has to deal with it from time to time.
PS: Meanwhile, why am I out of bed? Cripes. Whose bright idea was it to have jobs start in the morning and last all day, instead of decently being something you do for a few hours in the afternoon once or twice a week?
