Creative 365: Two Weeks In

Creative 365: Two Weeks In

 

So 7 years ago (holy hell, it WAS that long ago!), I tried my first 365 project. You can see the failed attempt here. I made it to nearly 2 months, and had about 22 finished pieces, 18 penciled pieces, and missed a total of 11 days. What I learned from this failed attempt was that between getting ready for my Senior Showcase, going to school, and looking for a job, I wasn’t really ready to do something like that yet. I have about 4 pieces from it that I still use, and looking back there are some pieces and ideas I really wished I would go back and develop.

What have I learned from THIS go around?

I learned that I can really, really push myself more than I thought. I also learned that sometimes its better to just go with an idea than to ignore it. My “Women Shouldn’t Fight?” poster has taken a life of its own, and may be the biggest shock to me. I was also shocked how many people loved my other piece, “Mind? Blown!”. I had Devin Townsend, one of my hero’s, tweet me that he loved the Gig Poster I did for his Philly show!

And it’s only been two weeks.

I won’t lie, I’m afraid of not being able to keep up the rate, of missing a day, or countless other things. Then again, I’m afraid of a lot of things. Let’s see where we go!

Wrapping Up A New Piece.. Or Two!

Very productive day, VERY productive!

I finished up the inks for a new piece that I started Friday and I’ve finally finished inking a piece that was on my desk since, get this, JULY! I was afraid to ink it because there were a few things kinda off on it. I took care of them and the image has already been very popular thanks to Google Image Search, so this piece is already shaping up to be an instant hit!

Not sure what I’m going to do with the first one, but the one I’ve posted already had one purpose… I think it just got another!

Look for more soon this week on these pieces!
