Weekly Project Summary: Started July 3rd, 2020 - still ongoing.
Each week I will be listing an additional piece of artwork here. These will be super small runs. While I usually sell a bunch of each variety, I'm trying out the limited run approach to, honestly, learn people's preferences. The "Daily Challenge" was very stretching for me. I want to continue to grow stronger through both improved design and mastery over the process (faster design on my end). Because these are going to take a bunch of time, be significant to ship, and use a ton of material, I'm afraid I can't price them as I did the dailies. While I lost money on the dailies, it was still fun as each day wasn't a huge loss. Hope you understand.
Daily Project Summary: Ran from April 1st through June 20th, 2020
Each day I will be listing an additional mini-art piece here (1 of 1). Only one of each variety will be sold. Thanks guys! Hopefully we come out stronger on the other side. To get a jump on when they are listed, see my instagram stories (@fil_roberts).
For those who have been following for a while, you know this started as the 60-day challenge. From the beginning, even 60 days seemed like an impossible task. The objective was to practice designing faster, improve my designs, and overcome my inability to actually FINISH designs. I am super great at starting but the final 10% of a design kills me. By having to create a new one EVERY day, I have to be able to edit my work much faster and be more confident in my decisions. This also pushed me to experiment on a bunch of elements that I wouldn't have otherwise.
Why go past the original 60 days? They say it takes 21 to 30 days to create a habit. Well for me, it seems it takes much longer to stick. It wasn't until I was in the day 50s when I felt like I was getting into a groove. So, I'm going to continue until I can't anymore - or until I change the everyday challenge to something else.
Thanks to those who have kept me accountable and been here for the ride! I hope it only improves.
