Creative Every Day - What Creativity is?

I did something, what I didn't believed that I can do. I finished the Inktober! I didn't missed even a day, even I once posted like 30 minutes late, I count it as success. I actually loved it and feelings after posting the last photo where a lot. It was mix of relief, glad and emptiness. I was so happy, when I got it done, but at the same time I didn't want it to end. I actually draw even more then I posted in last month!

I started to search view days ago, what kind of challenges are on online for November. I found view possibilities. 30 characters in 30 days, made me to think about my bears and doing whole family of them. Maybe even whole village! But what I found next was, Art every day month. I read about it more and liked the idea. Basically working same then Inktober. Then I saw that the same site has also Creative every day challenge. The Blogger Leah Piken Kolidas says; "Creativity is meant in the broadest sense, so it doesn't have to be something art related. Your creative acts could be in cooking, taking pictures, knitting, doodling, writing, dancing, decorating, singing, playing with your kids, brainstorming ideas, gardening, or making art in the form of collage, paint, or clay...or whatever!" I couldn't say it better."

Who says what is and isn't creative! It's doing something from your heart! Putting your thoughts to daylight for others to see! For me it's part of happiness. It's giving something from yourself, but not losing it. It's more like opening the curtains to show it to others, but keeping it at the same time.

So this is what I'm doing next; CreativeEveryDay2018. I'm really late for it, but I like that the next two months feels realistic to do. I know I have to deal at some point the feelings with not getting it done at everyday, but even itself is a learning experiment. I will draw that bear family, but I'm not giving whole month for it. I go with the feeling day by day. Now I feel like drawing, but I know it will be a lot different things in future. Kind of like this blog, it's basically patchwork quilt of creativity!

Working with a giant project

I've been busy and it's easy to see from, how often I've been writing lately. Anyways in beginning I promised for myself, that keeping the blog isn't going to be something, that I let to stress myself. I'm using all my time and energy for the work, what I'm doing right now. I don't want to tell more about it now, but for this post's sake, I need to tell, that I'm working with Photoshop and using hundreds of hours for this.

The biggest challenge for me is, that I don't remember to take a breaks. Somehow drawing with computer, doesn't feel same way working, then sewing or painting. I easily forget to drink or eat. Suddenly I notice,  that I've been drawing four hours and haven't moved at all. In long run, this is really stupid and I'm trying to focus specifically to this. Currently I'm "watching" Netflix while working. More like I have it open and I'm listening and time to time looking what is happening. My idea f…

Giving second change for my markers and buying new ones

I've been really into Inktober. Even more then I waited to be. I waited to have more problems with keeping this daily schedule, but surprisingly, only one day was hard to get anything done. I've been focusing to drawing so much and haven't really felt like writing. I think it's partly because, I've just been drawing and not doing that much anything else.

I've used almost completely my original markers. I had my first Sharpies ever and they used to be enough for me. Just because I didn't used to draw with them. I basically used those just for writing. They are okay and good for practicing, but now I'm needing more and I'm waiting from mail, my new Winston&Newton's Promarkers. I read and watched Youtube videos about, what would be the best for me. Copics are known to be the best, but the price is just way too much. I trust to Winston&Newton as brand, based of their other products, like paints. Also some artists actually prefer them, over C…

Art and feelings - hospital art

If you are saying that art doesn't wake any kind of feelings in you, you need to stop at next time and actually give a second to look at it. Art can be powerful tool and mood effective. I'm talking now specially about art in hospitals and other public places. In this context, art can be anything from actual painting or photography, to color of walls or pattern of ceiling. I'm always focused the patterns of air conditioner's grids. It sounds so small detail, but every hospital room has it and after laying somewhere hours, you'll start to notice details on roof.

I've got my dear share of hospital time. Time in waiting rooms, doctors offices, examination rooms, wards... There is usually one common thing. Something on walls, that is meant to make place to look nicer, warmer, more comfortable... Sometimes even more home like. It can be anything from doctor's kid's or kid patients drawings to abstract professional photographer's ink test like photos. Eith…
