This past year has been very very busy, what with bouncing around states and nannying and then experimenting with college.
Admittedly, my 52 project did not turn out completely. However, there was much success nonetheless. I did not keep many if any pictures, yet I managed to turn out 17 commissions, 9 drawings, plus 7 purses and 4 tshirts with my designs on them. This only leaves 15 weeks unaccounted for, and I count for myself a win - because if we counted the cakes (I'm into all the piping and stuff nao) we can say only 4 weeks failed.
I learned several things about myself as an artist:
-The pros don't know everything, fancy tools are often overrated - a real artist should be able to do things with the bare minimum - and I overthink things and hesitate too much.
For this year I have set for myself a schedule that allows 45 minutes for drawing each weekday, and my focus for the new year will be speed. To complete a drawing in 30 of those minutes, and spend the last 15 on a big idea that'll finish when it's finished. It'll be great. And I'll do my best to post them.
Avoiding dA is nao over. Though, I am not going through 4000 deviations. I was going to go through the artists I always support, but as many people have apparently changed their names, I cannot promise anything. And if you posted more than like, 40, I can't promise anything either.
