In January I decided to undertake a mammoth art challenge: Create 365 drawn, painted, sculpted, and/or sewn characters throughout the course of 2013. With this journal page, I have created 144 characters so far this year. To see pictures of all the characters, check out this Flickr set.
I'm not quite halfway through the challenge and I am starting to feel fatigued. I've been ahead of the game right from the beginning but I'm not generating pieces at the pace I was when I began so I anticipate falling behind if I don't catch my second wind. It is certainly not for lack of imagination or interest, but rather time and energy; everyday life has sort of asserted itself over my art life in recent weeks.
Summer break from teaching will hit at the end of May so I am hoping the sudden gift of free time will breathe new life into this challenge for me.
