I have been researching the market, soul searching, refining my style and coming up with ideas in my sketchbooks towards a new portfolio of work which I hope to have ready for June, along with a new website design. I am working on 10 Illustration projects for 10 weeks in order to do this (each project has a one week long deadline).
I have come up with a method for doing this: I will pick one random project and then work on it until it is done, then repeat the process 9 more times.
I have written down 10 project briefs that I want to work on (they go with my portfolio direction based on what markets I want to target and my interests) and then labeled them a-j. These briefs will remain top-secret for now :-)
Today I made a spinning wheel so that I can decide on each project to do without too much fuss or bias. I came up with the idea after watching a few game shows (tip- you have to lay the wheel flat when you spin it otherwise gravity wins every time).
Now please excuse me because I have a lot of work to do…
