Bye Bye 2017

Bye-bye-2017

I can’t believe that 2017 is nearly over! I’m pretty sure I say this every year but there it is: this year has gone so freakin’ quickly!

Since it’s that time of year again, I took some time this afternoon to reflect on 2017 and set my goals for 2018.

I feel that this task was more difficult today than it has been in recent years.

One of the main reasons is that art-wise, 2017 was a bit of a confusing year. My illustration style evolved in a direction that is making me question where I want to go with it. Don’t get me wrong, it is super interesting and fun! But it threw me (as well as my previous goals) off balance and now I am trying to rethink everything I thought I knew.

I am also battling internally with ‘shoulds’ (those things that I feel I should do for x, y, z reason), ‘wants/don’t wants’ (the things that I want or don’t want to do) and an incredible portion of doubt.

I ended up writing a long list of questions. I guess I was hoping that I would get all the answers by end of day today but that didn’t happen (cough – obviously – cough).

Anyway.

My hope for the new year is that it brings me a new compass that will help me navigate the confusing waters so that I can set sail towards some exciting new worlds and hidden treasures (yo ho!).
