A new month with a spark for our passions!
I have been enjoying this new way of finding inspiration and playing with my supplies as well as experimenting with new colors! I have found that my art tends to follow the same vein of process and this has helped continue to push me in new ways which has been exciting.
I have also started a journal practice. I am working on getting more consistent with doing this but the times I have stopped (usually on the weekend) and just wrote down how I am feeling and where I need to focus it has helped center me in a new way. I am using my 2019 Hobonichi Techo for this and I am continually blown away by how thin the paper is and how well it hold up to illustration and watercolor. If you have not run into a Hobonichi yet I included a pic below of an illustration and journal page I did while on a recent trip to California.
For February I picked the theme of Focus because its typically the start of loosing sight of the ideas and excitement we started the new year with and I want to remind myself that those items are the true focus I want for my life. The key words also follow along in the same idea with Dream, Charisma and Passion to remind us to be our best creative selves!
Remember to let yourself explore and challenge yourself to not only create every day but experiment with your supplies and your process. Part of being an artist is just making art not everything has to be "beautiful", "perfect" or "art" the process is justas important if not more important than the product!
#DrawRiotDaily February 2019
This year my daily challenge is about making room for you and enjoying the process of creative exploration.
Detail details details!
• Each month will have a main theme word along with 3 key words to spark your creative fire.
• A set of colors that you can use as a jumping off point.
• An art supply to try along with an artistic technique to try.
• (Optional) I will be setting a 10 minute timer for each day to remind me that creativity can be spontaneous and that its ok to just play.
