And so another year is done, and a new one has begun. I’ve officially been A Graduate for over a year now, and I am possibly more tired than I ever was while I was at uni but there we go. I just wanted to write a quick post summing up my past year, and giving you guys a look at what my plans are for 2017 – which will hopefully be less of a global trainwreck than 2016 has been.
I’ve made a lot of work this year. I’ve done so many doodles and filled so many sketchbooks, but I still feel like I haven’t progressed my actual body of work enough. It was only towards the end of this year that I got more organised and driven about pushing to get projects done, even with my full time hours at work. Free time is for other people, after all.
So this year I’ve planned out far more projects in advance, and some of my long term ideas should come to fruition at the end of 2017. I’ve spent too long thinking about projects I want to do ‘when I have the time’ and not enough time actually making time to do them. Well, now I’m making the time. I want to make these things happen and, for the time being at least, I’m the only one I have to answer to about making them. And I don’t put up with excuses from anyone else, so why should I from myself?
2017 might end with me very tired and covered in ink, passed out over my own keyboard. Honestly, I’m looking forward to it. So keep watching, friends, because I promise you there will be Content on This Blog over the next year.
And if it doesn’t, I give at least ten of you permission to hunt me down with spears.
Happy New Year!
