This year has really flown by for me. I’ve been busy drawing and painting artist trading cards and I haven’t come up for air very often. I counted up my scans for the year and found that I had made 204 ATCs for swaps and personal trades–and that doesn’t include a few 5×7 and 4×6 pieces that I had done on request. All finished art, not sketches. I’ve never made so much art in my life. I’m pretty pleased about that.
So what about 2010? What goal do I have? I want to relax and enjoy myself. Instead of working on a list of things to improve, I’m going to work on a list of things it would be fun to explore. I’ve learned that when I’m having fun and getting enthused my work tends to improve on it’s own. When I struggle and strive, my work gets tight and strained. I may learn some new techniques but the drawing seems flat and lacking.
Well, that’s my theory.
Thanks everyone for visiting during the year and leaving me such wonderful comments. I love sharing my work with you. I wish you all the best for 2010 and hope you have a safe and Happy New Year!
