One year ago i had my last tutorial at Camberwell… We allocated the spaces for the final show, my video was far from done and i was probably really stressed out! Today im not stressed out… but i am being proactive for a change. YEY!
The last few weeks have been soo hectic, but they have been all about LUKE! Ill tell you all about it in another post!
So anyway, today the focus is back on INA, and in order to get my act back together i have created something special. Its called a TIME TABLE!
I created it in InDesign (Im learning!) And even did a few quick illustrations for it in Illustrator (Woop!). Basically its a way for me to structure my week better, giving me a chance to do a little bit of everything, rather then one nothing at all..
The idea is that each day i focus on one area, i can spend as much or as little time with it as I want, but just spending a little time would be worth it in the long run.
My main objective is to increase my chances of getting a job that does not make me suicidal, and to create new art so that I can get some new work exhibited! Im worrying lately that ill focus too much on one side (say job hunting) that ill completely ignore my art, and i dont want to do that. So ill be spending one day a week only making new work, another learning new skills etc. It seems kinda hardcore but i work best when there are strick deadlines to work with, anyway ill be at work pretty much all the time anyway, so there wont be that much time spare.
Im gonna try to update my blog with my (hopefully) progress.
So here is my multi coloured bright and shiny brand spanking new time table:
isn’t that nice!
The days all have a different focus, the pic is pretty small but you can just see it if you have a lovely big computer like mine!
The days are as follows:
HUNT (job hunting)
LEARN (at the moment focusing on illustrator)
TRY (applying for exhibitions, competitions and residences- its all about art)
MAKE (new artwork, drawings etc)
DISPLAY (updateing websites, blog etc, work on portfolio and CV and indesign)
WORK (saturday is all about housework, shopping, cooking, cleaning and doing whatever i ran out of time to do)
ENJOY (sundays are for relaxing with Luke, tv, movies and whatever)
