Writing this first post of 2015 makes me think of cracking open a new sketchbook and feeling that excitement and anxiety of just starting. I like that feeling of beginning, but it can also be terrifying. Where do you start? Every new year I want to press an imaginary reset button on myself, so while I'm home enjoying every bit of family and sun in California I've been thinking of ways I can keep motivated, start fresh and keep it up throughout the year.
Here are a few things that are pushing me in positive ways:
+ Trying daily planner pages from Day Designer. You can download a free planner page. I tried it out and like it.
+ What It Really Takes to be an Artist from MacArthur Genius Teresita Fernandez. Very real talk about making art.
+ I know that our environment influences our behavior, so I'm itching to get home and change up my space a bit, so maybe I can form better, more productive habits.
+ Incredibly honest and inspiring words to get you making - Molly Crabapple's 15 rules for creative success in the Internet age
