Watercolour experiment 01 finished.
I am turning 25 in about a month (28th November) and i’m scared shitless.
I think i’ve achieved a lot professionally, academically and socially. I have my degree and a good paying stable job in Design (woohoo!) I undertake frequent freelance projects that bulk up my portfolio. I have dope friends and we do a ton of dope shit together. I’ve had meaningful relationships, i’ve had casual flings. I’ve had a good 24 years and 11 months.
So why do i feel so unaccomplished?
I think it stems from my lack of progress simply as an artist. I’ve had a few exhibitions, i’ve a group show coming up in November. But still my personal work is somewhat at a standstill. I prioritise pretty much everything above it, even though i KNOW that it fulfils me the most of all my passions.
So, I’ve decided to undertake a year long project. i’ll be working on two paintings/illustrations a month to be released on the 1st of each month starting this November. In the hopes that by this time next year i will have 25 (bad math) pieces to display on the Eve of my 26th birthday, when hopefully i’ll have the where-with-all to put on my own one man show.
This blog and my instagram will be a sort of visual and written account of my progress and trials. Hopefully documenting all this will feed into the work making them more personal and true accounts of my life.
I’m sure i could have written this better, but i’ve never been great with words. i’m excited about this though!
ROUND 1! Fight!!
