The 37th Parallel
Winter is here.
Life living above the 37th parallel in January is hunker down season, for obvious reasons: it’s cold out, the weather is spotty, the roads are unsafe, and bundling up to brave the elements is on a “only if I have to” basis.
It’s also a great time to work on new projects. Brew that cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa and get to work.
The time has passed for me to advise you to start planning. In case you are reading this in the late Summer or the early Fall: that is when you start to map out ideas for an attack plan of your personal projects.
For me: I’m continuing working on art prints for my personal site, working on UI, icon and UX samples for a design centric portfolio, and I’m rendering comic ideas I’ve been jotting away on all year.
What are you working on? A new side hustle? An icon pack to sell? A new node package on npm? A logo for a new business? Hone those skills! Explore those ideas! During this time that most people are getting dull from inactivity, it’s your time to get sharp.
Today is day one of a New Year. Time is ticking. Best make the best of the time you have right now because a few Netflix binges and late nights saving the world from bad guys and it’s Spring again and time to get out of the house. That time isn’t coming back.
So put that PS in sleep mode, and fire up that laptop. Time to get to work!
Pen, Ink, and Cintiq!
I love making personal works that I use as a vehicle to explore to constantly learn the programs I use on my day to day, and push my artistic abilities.
