2013

And so another year roles round. And once again, in the post-festivity calm, I am left to ponder the year ahead. This year my job will reduce to only 4 days per week, leaving a whole stack of new time for creative endeavours. 2012 was a challenging and interesting year. I completed the sketchbook project, lost my job, wrote coffee reviews and really focused my creative time on photography. When I thought I would be drawing, I ended up out taking photographs. As 2012 taught me, you can’t plan everything, so this year i’m aiming for:

  • Outline all those projects i’ve been talking about and start. Stop saying yes to other peoples projects and take some time for mine. I sum this up with the words: focus and organisation.
  • Learn more about lighting and product photography. On a basic level, these are already part of my professional job, but not something I have much experience with.
  • Master the Seagull. This machine requires patience, dedication and good eyesight.
  • On which note, complete my eye therapy. Cross fingers it helps with manual focusing and using viewfinders. Oh, and seeing properly and all that. Ok, this is a January plan.
  • Drink more lattes in more cafes.
  • Make some time for drawing again.
  • Push my boundaries. Apparently it’s good for you.
  • Travel to Japan. This was meant to happen in 2012, until I lost my job that is. Tokyo in the June holidays, you’re on.

2013, bring it on!
