That Part Inside
I thought this piece above was fitting for this week's Illustration Friday Post "subteranean."
As I mentioned earlier, I am taking part in the In the Fishbowl Course by Marisa at Creative Thursday. There were a few questions she suggested we ask ourselves...
Why do I love what I create?
I enjoy seeing something I am proud of and seeing someone else enjoying it is always a bonus.
I enjoy giving people things that I create specifically for that person.
I enjoy the process of seeing an idea or direction or inclination "come to life."
I enjoy the possibility of making something utilitarian and visually interesting or meaningful out of nothing.
I enjoy creating something with someone else sometime (a social thing) - the "creating" becomes a whole new thing.
What makes me lose all track of time?
Solving visual problems.
Hanging out with Donald (his real name is Jon - my husband).
Using my hands - working, creating...
Riding my bike, walking, running, swimming, yogaing.
What does success look like?
Creating things that are useful and interesting to myself or others.
Solving problems to make life better for myself or others.
Living on very little and having lots of time to live my life as I see it should be (time = freedom).
How do I feel in relation to my work?
Excited and invigorated that I have decided not to box myself in and pre-define what being creative is. I am willing to just following inspiration and see where this takes me.
I am excited to work with others creatively.
I am excited that possibilities are endless.
I am excited that it is not about money.
I'd love to hear your thoughts...
Have a great evening!
