It's never too late for New Year's resolutions... or maybe, rather, it's never too late for resolutions in general.
Honestly, I've never made them before. I'm always feeling downcast and burnt out at the end of the year and even more depressed at the beginning of the year. At that time my future appears as a sequence of disasters and failures, with no possibility of improving, but with many opportunities for deterioration. The advantage of this situation is that the worse my mood is, the better my works are (Hipp Hipp Hurray!) - strange but true.
After this short, personal digression, we can go straight to the point - my resolutions for this year:
1. to make a few illustrations with people* (no problem, this should be feasible)
*amendment: to make a few good illustrations with people (ok, I'll do my best)
2. to make some character designs* (easy part)
*side note: these designs should be outstanding... or at least interesting (aha, here's the catch)
3. to write regular blog entries* (yes ma'am)
*side note: "regular" means at least twice a month (hmmm, what's next?)
4. to develop abilities in digital speed paintings (absolutely!)
5. to start a video blog about drawing/painting (great, I was afraid that I would have to sing or dance)
6. to find a mysterious way to work more effectively and keep the right work-life balance (tough challenge)
7. to stop talking to myself (that was cruel...)
What a short blog entry! In the next article I'll describe how I make long-term and short-term plans and how I actually keep them :)
