The last few months, I’ve been roughing out an idea for my 2015 art goal. Since our last move, I’ve not had a studio to work in. Studio or not, I need to make art and the media I have at hand is digital art. I’ve resisted digital art in general because I consider myself to be stylistically nearly the opposite of a graphic artist. Posted 17 second doodle animation example below is the type of "stuff" that just happens with out a plan or honed graphic artist "skills".
But, lately I realize my standards for what digital art is has been based on graphic art from past decades. Also, digital art, and computer screens to view art on has come a long way since 1991. So? while I continue to write / revise my fiction, I’ve drafted up a 2015 computer art goal.
Learning by doing to better understand what digital art is and improve my skills. I'm posting today to hold myself publically accountable to this goal.
2015 computer art goal — 50/52
50 digital art projects, one per week, (-2 weeks vacation ) with a social networking publicity component.
P.s. don’t worry it’s not going to be a 365 post every day of the year art goal like 2010 or a page / post a day like 2011.
Also the strange even to me 2012 ‘M’ project, I’m not worried about it, I’m moving forward.
2013? — Was a year of clay for me. See: art blogs if you like Narrative Notes or portfolio page, www.uvabe.com . (also something for me to work on, consolidating all blogs into one blog with a time-line. We shall see how that goes :)
2014? Was a writing / revising year, and also why I know I miss art terribly and plan to both write fiction and make art in 2015.
