I like to challenge myself… It keeps the brain active and the heart engaged…
In the past I have done various series of visual art projects, or writing projects, or other such things, to keep my creative juices flowing. Sometimes I do them by myself, sometimes in groups with other creative folks. Recently I thought it would be nice to share some of these projects here. It makes me a little more accountable to getting the darn things done and it’s nice to have a little feedback from someone other than that strange girl in the mirror.
Past projects have included things such as self-portraits, a photo-a-day, stories written on twitter, documenting my garden or butterflies, a drawing-a-day, improvised acting, poetry or improv stories…. and the list goes on…
Of course, some projects have been more successful or interesting than others. And some are just concentrated version of things I do fairly regularly anyway. But I do like to try new things… and I am always looking to play with a new idea. Sadly, I occasionally get ideas for projects that I would love to do, but can’t because of time or money constraints… life is just contrary like that.
Most of the my creative projects from the past can be only found in my memory… or by digging through other social sites, such as Twitter, G+ or Facebook… Some are buried in boxes under my bed, or in portfolios in a closet, or hanging on someone else’s wall.
Anyway, here are a few I have documented or created on this blog… I will add more links as I have time…
