New Years Resolutions and Projects for 2006
2005 has been a year of many changes for me: a new home, a new job, new projects, and I've gone back to school (in a fashion.) One of the major changes in my life has been one of perspective concerning my creative life. Making comics is tough, and fitting them into my life has always been a struggle. When faced with that struggle in the past, I've often procrastinated or distracted myself. With a little help (and inspiration) from my friends, and the support of this blog, I've been facing the struggle head on. I wish continue this, and that's my resolution for 2006.
Here are some more specific resolutions:
Make every day a working a day a day, a day closer to achieving my goals. Approach each day with this in mind.
Create a plan to meet my artistic goals. Follow this plan every day. Maintain and adjust this plan a necessary.
Use tools I know work to achieve my artistic goals: creating a plan and work schedule, keeping a record, positive thinking, etc.
Create from a place of inspiration, not guilt.
Don't grade my work against others. Don't compare myself to others (or at least limit the comparing.)
Realize and believe that I am awesome. No more of this low self esteem crap.
