December Goals

Do other people write down art goals at the beginning of every month? I am a compulsive list maker, so at the end of each month, I write down my goals for the coming month. It is a chance to make New Year's resolutions 12 times a year: I get 12 fresh starts. I use a cheap spiral notebook to record and track my goals. I don't always achieve all of my goals, but I think I achieve more than I would without goals. My December goals are shown below. Keys to Drawing from Imagination and Design: Principles and Problems are books I am slowly working through. EDM stands for Every Day Matters, which I have been meaning to join for a long time now. I have an expensive set of Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph pens, but I use Micron ones instead due to laziness. I want to get comfortable with the better pens so I will use them. I think the rest of the goals are self-explanatory.

Thanks for stopping by and for you nice comments.

This is a great idea. It never occurred to me to make a list of illustration goals. Those books sound good as well. Just might be stopping by Amazon. Thanks.

I love lists too...though I've never thought of creating a list of goals each month. I think this is a terrific idea! You've inspired me...thanks!
