My Top 7 Art Project resolutions.

Welcome to 2013! I believe that this is going to the best year for me. There are so many goals that I have. Many of them involve art, but not all of them. Most of them I'll keep to myself, because I've learned that when I reveal my goals to others, I start to loose sight of them. That's just me. So this year, I'm going to keep my most important goals to myself.

Here are the art projects that I wish to complete before the end of 2013:

1. Finish my mini comic and post it online and/or publish it in a comics journal.

Last year a started a really interesting story that I didn't finish. Unlike many of the stories that I start, I actually really like this one and want to continue it. Unfortunately, I had to put it off, due to the fact that I deleted 2 weeks worth of work off of my computer. This year I hope to finish this miniature story and possibly work on chapter two. I will post the story here on my website as soon as it is finished.

Note: this is not the mini comic that I'm talking about. This is mini that I did for girlfriend as a gift. 

2. Do at least 5 portraits

I love doing portraits, because they make good gift (if they look okay). I don't necessarily drawing people that much, but it is nice to get it right. This year, I want to do at least five, so that I can use them as Christmas presents at the end of the year.

3. Complete the old sketchbook and start a new one.

I started a sketchbook on this blog and I still have a few pages left on it. I want to finish it, so that I can start using the moleskine sketchbook.

4. Do a large scale painting (really huge)

The biggest paintings that I've done are not really that big. I have always wanted to do a painting that requires the viewer to take a few steps back. I have seen paintings like this in art galleries. They are mesmerizing. I am not really sure what I'm going to paint yet, but it's going to be awesome.

5. Paint a landscape.

I don't do that many landscapes or sceneries. This year, I want to give it an honest try.

6. Finish a project that involves lights.

I have so many ideas rolling around in my head, but there is this particular one idea that I've had that involves lights. I have flirted with the idea in my mind for a while, but this year, I hope to execute the ideas.

7. Sculpt something functional and beautiful with cardboard

Cardboard is such a useful material, yet we throw it away all the time. For Christmas, I had to make a custom box for a gift. This inspired me to create with cardboard again.

I made this in Art 101. It supports up to 200 pounds.
