So I might be doing a thing. If it is a thing it will be all about creating. Every day I am aiming to create something. It might be art, music, or some prose. I want to discover my ‘voice’ if there is such a thing, and one way to do that is to create and see where it takes me. I have several projects in need of work but I won’t limit myself to those. I don’t want to restrict the creative flow just see where it takes me. I don’t like restrictions they… well… restrict.
Today’s creative practice, or act, was the logo above. I used Adobe Illustrator and reminded myself how to subtract a shape from another shape. As you can see these acts of creativity don’t need to be too demanding or difficult. The only rule is to do something each day, an act, a practice, a ritual of creativity.
So if this does become a thing it will be a thing with minimal rules. The act doesn’t need to be completed. It could be 50 words, 100, one or two thousand. It might be a musical theme, a song or a soundtrack. It may be a page in my art journal. But I will create something… if this is a thing.
I have been in a creative rut for too long. I have spent too much time thinking about processes and lists and projects without actually doing anything creative. This thing is a way to get me out of the rut. Each day; an act of creativity.
