Daily Challenge – 1 Week In

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.

 

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.

 

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!

To keep up to date with daily art posts, follow me on Instagram. If you’d rather just have a weekly update, why not follow my blog? Don’t be a stranger – leave some comments below and let’s get busy this year! 🙂
