Thanks to everyone who entered the sketchbook giveaway! I really enjoyed reading all your inspiring New Year’s Resolutions, so I thought I’d share a few of my own.
Last year I started a daily photo project, but I only made it to August. I thought about doing a similar daily creative challenge, and in a way I suppose I’m doing one, but it’s less specific: everyday I’m doing SOMETHING to make progress toward my creative goals. The first few days of the year found me doing a major clean up and overhaul of the studio. Now that I have a beautiful space to work in, I’ve been sketching everyday since then. A few creative goals I have are to create more patterns and make at least one large scale painting or drawing. I have a big 3′ x 4′ canvas waiting for me, as well as a huge 4′ wide roll of cotton paper. I also want to get more familiar with Corel Painter, which is a powerful program that I’ve only fumbled around with a few times.
Those are the basics of my resolutions for the year. I plan to keep the momentum going throughout the year, that I’ve already built up in these first few days of January, and continue to make progress and have fun with it all!
Ok, ok, so enough about me, and on to the good part.
