Hi everyone, I figured this would be a good time for a quick update.
Last week, I wrote a post about my goals for 2017. So far, I’ve been doing good – keeping up with my goal to produce art every day.
What? It was hard enough making one a week but I decided to push myself to do one a day.
Day 2. Went with something a little nature related. This isn't usually my go-to. But if anything, I felt like drawing something I've never spent much time on aka environmental art. It's surprisingly meditative to work on stuff like this. 🍎 If you feel like challenging yourself this year, join me and start drawing! No matter how short, aim to produce something every single day.🍒 Check out my blog post (link in bio) to read about the rest of my art goals this year. 🌵 • #art #instaart #dailyart #moleskine #sketchbook #doodle #artoftheday #artistsoninstagram
There have already been days when I dreaded working on this. Either because I think the piece is terrible or I can’t think of anything remotely interesting to draw.
Day 3. A Good Hair Day. I was half asleep by the time I drew this. Apparently that in itself inspires strange art – stranger than my typical stuff. Maybe not. Idk. I still don't quite understand what I drew.. 🤔 but weeee, it's finally the weekend in my part of the world ❤️ #instaart #instaartist #artoftheday #artdaily #drawing #artistsoninstagram #doodle
On days like that, I used to leave things unfinished and procrastinate with some other menial task (terrible habit, I know!). But so far, the pressure to have something to upload the next day has been enough of a driving force to keep me on track.
I’m aiming to do it long enough that it becomes a habit (we all know how fleeting motivation alone can be).
As I scroll through this post, I’m totally surprised by how much work I’m capable of producing if I put my mind to it. If you’re busy with school or a full time job, I hope this sheds light into what can await you too.
I spent the past few months, feeling lucky if I had one piece uploaded on Instagram per week. But in the last few days, I’ve just been using lunch breaks and free time to create things. So if it helps, I really recommend using little pockets of available time in your day. Oh, and take your sketchbook everywhere with you. And you’d be surprised how much you’ll have done in a week!
