1. Make 1 screen print edition this month.
I had a great time making my Goose Girl screen print (see last post) and it spurred me to remember how much I love the process. I of course need to get my house more arranged for the process but I'd love to start trying to maybe release a screen print every month. I've already got a few purchase inquiries so it can only get better, right?
2. Post an outfit at least 4 times a week.
I think I can do this one, as long as I get better. Go away sickies! I don't think you guys want to see a picture of my bright red nose right now.
3. Promote myself.
I've always been afraid to promote my artwork, because it is never where I want it to be. But I've realized being an artist means you are never going to be completely satisfied. You will always find something wrong with a drawing or painting, and that's a good thing. You only grow and get better when you learn from your mistakes. So I shouldn't keep putting off promoting myself until I get "better", I should just do it. I've been in some pretty important art shows so that means something. I got a little talent :)
Everyone says this one... But this summer I've noticed I've become a little lazy. It's too hot to ride my bike to work or go for jogs in the evening. But I need to do a physical activity at least 4 times a week for 20 minutes. I should walk my dog more, ride my bike to friends houses, or go to the gym (I do have a membership). During the winter I went to the gym almost every other day, and in March I ran a 5K in 32 minutes (which is good for a beginner!) So I know I can do better, so come one let's do this!
That's one thing I forget to do... just draw. Art takes so much practice and I feel so rusty. I need to draw something, anything daily, and it doesn't matter what it is of. So my sketchbook is going to get an overhaul!
So there are 5 goals set out for me. I of course have a few more little ones like, waking up earlier for work, and using mouth wash (tmi I know) but those are my goals for all to see. And maybe I'll give updates from time to time, I definitely will post in the end of the month on whether or not I keep to these goals, and if I don't please, please yell at me. :)
