If you’ve found yourself reading today’s blog I can only assume you’ve been waiting with bated breath for the launch of Project 365. Thank you for showing interest in an epic new project in which I will probably lose my mind. In retrospect maybe I should have went for a reality television show. I already appreciate all of the love and support you’ve shown without having a clue what hairbrained journey I’ve created for myself… seriously, thank you.
Okay and without furthur adieu, welcome to Project 365.
As a creative person who owns a small business I find that time and energy are a fleeting commodity. The delicate line between designing for my clients and designing for the pure passion of discovery are often blurred, or obliviated. Often times I run out of hours in the day to follow through on a super cool idea because I’m simply too busy with the jobs that pay the bills. I’m going to be really honest here… I have some BADASS ideas that never see the light of day, such a shame. Without follow through I’m missing the opportunity to learn new techniques, experiment with products, and most of all better myself as a designer. Project 365 is that opportunity to EXPLORE!
Starting on Saturday, January 18th Project 365 will be launched. For the next year I will design one new “piece” every single day. Yep. Every. Single. Day. These are the nuggets that have been rattling around in my head for years – finally I can dust them off and show them to you! Every morning I will take 30-60 minutes to create and then photograph it for your viewing pleasure. You can find them all listed on this website under the Project 365 menu tab.
I’m diving into a creative pool of craziness here. I have no freakin’ clue what will happen when I’m sick, hungover or eyebrow deep in wedding season. Hey that’s life and here’s the thing … if I don’t try then I can’t succeed. I’m willing to take that risk – are you willing to support me? I’d love to know what you think of the things I’m creating along the way. These explorations will make me a more knowledgable, creative and diverse designer for future clients.
Now there’s no doubt in my mind that there will be a fair amount of insanity along this road. Hopefully I can discover new things about myself, become a better artist and perhaps even inspire a few along the way. If you have any pearls of wisdom or parting last words, please leave a comment below. Here goes nothing kids.
