Well, I’ve decided it’s time for me to retire this good old blog. Originally I started it because as a filmmaker I thought I should have a portfolio website, then I warped it into a photo of the day art project I eventually lost interest in, and my latest attempt to revive via blogging creative projects leaves me uninspired still. So, I’ve decided to retire this site completely, leave the archive up, but not update content for the foreseeable future. I’ve found another medium elsewhere to post my stuff under more anonymously, and that’s provided me significantly more freedom of … Continue reading Ah, so this is goodbye
Finishing a painting (finally), trying to nail down 1-2-1-2 on the drums (haven’t), “writing” stuff, and doodling (which hardly constitutes as art) Not quality, but this project is significantly easier than getting a photo everyday. Though, come to think of it, I am still technically getting a photo still every day I guess….
I’ve been teaching myself to paint for about a year or so. First with oops house paint on concrete and more recently on actual canvas with acrylics that my boss gifted me. Generally very modest, I will say that I’m surprised that I am able to paint portraits that actually look like who they are without any training. That said, I have vast amounts of room for improvement, and have yet to actually complete a painting.
Making stuff everyday still, at least I haven’t missed a day of creating something. Yay for loose standards on goals that way I know I can keep them… Err….. sort of….
Hasn’t resulted in production of a higher quality yet….
So I’ve stayed true to my word of creating something everyday. Quite the eclectic mix of stuff, nothing good though.
Okay. So instead of bitching how I failed to upkeep my blog again, I’m just going change my game. It’s very obvious I’m over the daily photo thing.
I dabble in all sorts of creative endeavors, video obviously, but also collaging, painting, drawing, designing, writing poetry, writing songs, starting novels I’ll never finish, learning the drums and the guitar, sewing, and various other things than just taking photographs. So why have I limited myself to that with this blog? Sure, I’m not very skilled at most of those things, but I enjoy doing them and I could get better if I do more of them but I surely will not get better if I don’t do them at all.
So, that’s what I’m doing now. I’m going to create something everyday without limited medium. I will not promise any of it will be any good though.
For example I painted a shitty painting yesterday:
And wrote a shitty poem today: Continue reading “Creative Hobbies Project Days 1&2”
